The HPAT series of portable appliance testers from Martindale Electric now includes the HPAT400, along with new updates to its existing range, to enable both contractors and competent in-house personnel to quickly and safely verify the electrical safety of all types of appliances. Designed to perform safety checks in accordance with the IET Code of

Practice, the lightweight HPAT Series of handheld testers feature one button automatic testing and ultimate portability. The compact design, with bright backlit display, provides the perfect solution for testing in all locations, whether it’s under a desk or behind a monitor, where lighting may be restricted. Easy to use, the new HPAT400 from Martindale Electric is an

affordable, battery powered PAT tester. Suitable for Class I and Class II appliances, the new basic tester incorporates large pass/fail indicators and simple connection instructions on the tester. For applications which require combining simple pass/fail with actual

test values, the HPAT500 is ideal and now features a low insulation test voltage, making it suitable for testing surge protected devices. For added convenience, the HPAT500 is mains rechargeable for reduced running costs and can be operated from the mains via the supplied charger to ensure no down time on-site Also available in the range is the HPAT600 which includes both

automatic one button testing like the HPAT400 and HPAT500, plus single test selection for diagnostics. The HPAT600 features a run test for checking the integrity of the fuse and that the appliance is switched on prior to testing. The pass levels can be easily adjusted for testing appliances with long power cords or long extension leads. In addition, it has memory for storing test results of up to 200 appliances for on-screen recall when required. The latest range of PAT testers from Martindale Electric feature a new

colour coded user interface with clear connection instructions on the tester or on screen, making operation simple. All three models come supplied in a practical ‘test and go’ carry case,

with space for accessories, meaning valuable time is saved, as there is no need to unpack and repack the testers when taking measurements. The extended model range and new features make the Martindale

HPAT the solution of choice for implementing an efficient and cost effective portable appliance testing schedule to keep users safe and reduce potential fire hazards.

Euroclamp’s extended CEM series of modular DIN rail mounted enclosures are available from specialist distributor Switchtec. It has been designed to meet the

need for simple, customisable off the shelf enclosures. The CEM

series has been developed for OEM’s, equipment manufacturers and component manufacturers, and are manufactured with high specifications, including internal supports and guides for the easy installation of PCB’s. This ensures PC boards are held firmly in place when heavier components such as relays or transformers are used. The CEM range is available in 17mm, 22mm and 35mm, and is

designed to maximise internal capacity, allowing the use and mounting of a higher number of electronic components. In the 22mm and 35mm variant, it is possible to mount two PCBs, and by selecting one of two versions, the PCB’s can be mounted vertically or horizontally for the best solution for the application. Highly customisable, the CEM range can be made in many colours,

including grey, black, green, red and blue, and can also be manufactured to customers specifications - holes can be drilled for component access, terminals can be blanked out if not needed and the housing body can be printed with a design stipulated by the customer. Each CEM enclosure is supplied in three components: the main body of

the enclosure, the top and the bottom. The latter is fitted with two DIN clips, enabling quick and easy installation and removal from the DIN rail. They are supplied in kit form for fast, snap-fit, assembly. The CEM range is manufactured as standard from grey

self-extinguishing polyamide 6.6 UL94V0 material. Additional accessories include the Euroclamp ML25 terminal block available in two, three or four way, specifically designed to integrate with the CEM to give a perfect fit and finish to the product. TP35 blanking plates or TG35 ventilation plates are also available, enabling easy modification to the enclosure.
