MemoryPAT

  1. 1. MemoryPATBattery Powered Portable Appliance Testerwith Display & Memory
  2. 2. What comes in the box? MemoryPAT unit USB lead and mainscharger Test lead Short IEC lead User manual Equipment Register form Test Record form 100 Tested, 5 Failedlabels 50 Fuse labels
  3. 3. Layout of user controls
  4. 4. Layout of LCD DisplayLarge 6 line backlit LCD display, with clear layout of test results.
  5. 5. Power on testThis test is done automatically when the Class I or Class II buttons arepressed to make sure that the power switch on the appliance is in theON position. This is handy if you have forgotten to switch this ON. Thefollowing message is displayed to remind you.If the power switch is in the ON position then the following message isdisplayed and the tester proceeds to carry out the test.
  6. 6. Class 1 testWhen the Class 1 button is pressed this test will becarried out and the display will show the test resultsfor the Insulation Resistance and Earth Continuitytests as well as an overall Pass or Fail. The imagebelow shows the result of a test that shows a pass.The results show that the Earth Continuity was 80 milli-ohms using thedefault 1 metre lead length.The Insulation Resistance was very high at > 20 M ohms when testedusing a voltage of 500V.The test number on the last line (188 in this example) incrementsautomatically for each test.
  7. 7. Class II testWhen the Class II button is pressed this test iscarried out and the display will show the testresults for the Insulation Resistance test aswell as an overall Pass or Fail. The imagebelow shows the result of a test that shows apass.The results show that the Insulation Resistance was very high at > 20M ohms when tested using a voltage of 500V.The test number on the last line (1288 in this example) incrementsautomatically for each test.
  8. 8. Testing IEC leadsWhen the Power Cord button is pressed thistest will be carried out and the display will showthe test results for the Earth Continuity,Insulation Resistance and Wiring tests as wellas an overall Pass or Fail. The image belowshows the result of a test that shows a pass.The results show that the Earth Continuity was 80 milli-ohms using thedefault 1 metre lead length.The Insulation Resistance was very high at > 20 M ohms when testedusing a voltage of 500V.The wiring test shows that the IEC lead is wired correctly.
  9. 9. Testing long mains extension leadsThe Power Cord button is used for this testwhich. The display will show the test results forthe Earth Continuity, Insulation Resistance andWiring tests as well as an overall Pass or Fail.The default pass limit is set for a 1 metre longcable. The image below shows the result of atest on a 15 metre long mains extension leadthat shows a fail.The results show that the Earth Continuity was 250 milli-ohms usingthe default 1 metre lead length. This is a fail.The Insulation Resistance was very high at > 20 M ohms when testedusing a voltage of 500V.The wiring test shows that the IEC lead is wired correctly.
  10. 10. Adjusting for different lead lengthsUse the long lead button to adjust thelead length to 15 meters.After 1 press of the long leadbutton the display will be asshown here.After 2 more presses the cursorwill move to the 15 metre settingwith a pass limit of 0.4 ohms.This is the same as 400 milliohms.Now when the test is redone, the15 metre long extension lead willpass, because we have adjustedthe limit appropriately.
  11. 11. Testing surge protected appliancesThe default test voltage for Insulation Resistanceis 500V and this works well with the majority ofappliances. However ones fitted with surgeprotection can fail when tested at this voltage.This is due to the 500V test voltage being seen asa potential surge by the protection devices whichstart to limit at this level.If this is the case, then use the500V/250V button to set the250V option.Now when the test is done, theInsulation Resistance is testedwith at 250V.
  12. 12. Recalling results from MemoryThe MemoryPAT saves the last 2000 testresults in internal memory. The user canreview these at any time by pressing theMemory ◄ button found on the right of theDisplay.Pressing the Memory ◄ button again willshow older results while pressing the Memory►button will show more recent test results. Ifthe Memory ◄ or the ► buttons are keptpressed for more than 5 seconds, the unit willstep through the memory faster in steps of 10.
  13. 13. Downloading results to PCAll the test results from the MemoryPAT can be downloaded to aPC using a FREE Download Utility available fromwww.firststopsafety.co.uk and www.memorypat.co.uk websites.There is information here on how to download and install thesoftware.Once the software is installed, connect theMemoryPAT to the PC using the USB cablethat is supplied. When you launch thesoftware the screen below is displayed.
