One of the most popular PAT testers in recent years, the Seaward Supernova is well known for its excellent PAT testing capabilities, built-in extensive memory and PC connectivity for making data management significantly easier.

Designed for use on the bench due to its larger size than most PAT testers, it is recommended that appliances are brought to the tester, rather than the other way around. The tester is capable of testing every aspect of electrical appliance and lead safety; it includes true dual voltage testing for both 230V and 110V appliances, is suitable for 110V tools/appliances and is also capable of performing a flash test (which is often required when working with hired equipment).

The tester will also check earth continuity, earth screen continuity, insulation resistance, RCD trip-time, protective conductor current, touch current, substitute leakage, load and IEC lead polarity. Measurement results are relayed directly through a large-size LCD screen which will also give clear instructions on how to configure a test in order to save you time and effort when PAT testing.

With built-in internal memory included as standard, the Seaward Supernova can store up to 5000 individual testing records alongside additional information such as the user, test status and date. All of this information can be directly downloaded to PC and interacted with using Seaward's PATGuard Elite 3 software (30 day trial included - full software sold separately). A built-in serial port also accepts the connection of a barcode scanner or printer.

Stored data can be amended directly on the tester using the full QWERTY keyboard integrated into the front of the instrument.
