Apollo 600 test device
Seaward’s Apollo 600 multi-purpose portable test device is designed to carry out the point-to-point testing of fixed appliances, as recommended by the fourth edition of the IET Code of Practice.
The Apollo 600 is specially designed for risk-based portable appliance testing and is also equipped to carry out the earth continuity and insulation tests required on fixed appliances.
The system is suitable for testing all workplace appliances, including three-phase equipment and residual current devices.
- Built-in digital camera to enable visual evidence to be taken during inspections
- Universal risk assessment tool to allow hazards to be recorded, risk scores to be calculated and re-test intervals to be determined
- Onboard reports for fire detection and emergency lighting
The Apollo 600 electrical safety tester from Seaward is designed to help workplace duty holders to comply with the latest guidance on safeguarding against the risks posed by appliances and other equipment.
In this white paper, Jim Wallace of Seaward considers the role of the in-service inspection and testing of electrical equipment in helping to reduce fire hazards in the workplace.
Among the changes in the recently published fourth edition of the IET Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment was further guidance on fixed equipment. Here the Code of Practice recognises that the inspection and testing of appliances such as hot-air hand dryers and central-heating boilers can be more complex than portable and non-fixed equipment, but this does not mean that only visual inspections are required.
Seaward Group has provided specialist Clare B255 testers to more than 30 Jewson tool-hire branches to enable the timber and building material supplier to carry out electrical safety tests quickly and effectively.
Cropico, part of the Seaward Group, has introduced the DO4000 range of digital milliohmmeters designed to provide accurate low-resistance measurement and improved quality control during rail track maintenance programmes.
