What is PAT?
Portable Appliance Testing or PAT is it is a better know is a way of testing devices around your home or business. The majority of defects within appliances can be found after a visual inspection and this is the form of inspection that is typically carried out on appliances. However, if the faults are not easy to see then testing will need to be undertaken. A device will either be awarded a pass or a fail. If it fails, then it is important that adequate repairs are carried out.
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 make it a legal requirement for any electrical appliance to be maintained and kept safe. The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) are responsible for checking that PAT has been carried out. Guidance and advice on PAT is available from their website
When class 1 equipment is tested, it will also need to have test signals injected into the cable and appliance to make sure that there are no faults. Appliances in this class will rely on an earth protection and have basic insulation. Some examples of class 1 equipment include kettles, toasters, irons, microwaves, fridges and freezers, washing machines, and tumble dryers.
Other electrical appliances fall into two main categories, class 2 and class 3. Class 2 refers to appliances with supplementary insulation and they do not require earth protection. Common examples of these include TVs, lamps, DVD players, power tools, and hair dryers. Class 3’s rely on separated extra-low voltage supply (SELV) and do not require testing.
Control Panel Testing
Our team are available to carry out inspections and tests of control panels, ensuring your workforce is safe whilst at work. Control panels are designed to control mechanical equipment and each one includes specific devices which allow any operator to have control over pieces of equipment. A control panel is typically made up of the following areas:
Incoming protection and switching Power distribution systems Power and energy monitoring and control Thermal management Circuit and load protection Motion and drives Motor control Power supplies and transformers Enclosures Programmable controllers Interface and input/outputs Operator dialog Relays Machine safety
Our team are available to inspect and repair any problems that are found within your control panel. Only once this has been done will we sign off on any installation that we have carried out.
Data Cabling Installations
When it comes to data cabling, it is important to use a company that you can trust to install anything that you need. Data cables refer to any media that allows binary 1 and 0s (baseband transmissions) to be sent from transmitter to receiver. Cabling tends to be used in networking, telecommunications, and for media devices. The most common forms of cable include Ethernet, token ring, optical fibre, coaxial, serial, telecommunications, and USB.
Ethernet cables tend to be categorised into Cat 5, Cat 5e, Cat 6, and Cat 6a. Having an understanding of these different categories can help you to gain an insight into the development of the cable. Cat 5 wiring consists of a twisted pair cable for computer networks and has a standard performance of up to 100 MHz. These cables can be used to carry other signals such as telephone and video. The Cat 5e superseded this cable in 2001. The Cat 6 is a standardised version of twisted pair cables and is backwards compatible with Cat 5/5e. This cable provides a performance of up to 250 Mhz and has a reduced maximum length of 55 metres. The 6a was defined in 2009 and works up to 500 MHz.
Our team of fully trained and professional electricians are on hand to help provide data cabling installations for you, no matter what you need. For more information about our services, please do not hesitate to get in contact.
