Multi-function tester automates the 17th edition certificate

Seaward has produced a special training film for its new PowerPlus multi-function electrical installation tester. The film provides a step -by -step guide to the new tester.

Multi-function tester automates the 17th edition certificate

The tester automatically records test and inspection information onto built-in electronic copies of 17th edition certificates as electrical tests are performed.

New features of the PowerPlus 1557 include enhanced test data management and certification capabilities, designed to improve the operational efficiencies of local authorities, utilities, contractors and test engineers involved in large scale 17th edition electrical installation and periodic test routines in premises with identical circuit configurations.

The PowerPlus 1557 is believed to be the first electrical tester which incorporates an electronic version of the certificate within the tester, eliminating the need for ‘dummy’ certificates and manual or PDA recording of test results.

Test data is automatically entered into the correct certificate fields as testing is undertaken and can be validated on-site without the need for repeat visits. Look-up tables are also incorporated within the tester.

When inspection and testing is complete, the certificate held inside the PowerPlus 1557 tester can be transferred to PC software for output and/or supply to customers.

Features now built-in to the tester include the ability to download and merge data from multiple testers used by different engineers on large premises into a single certificate.

In addition, users can also generate replica certificates from a master template for contractors testing lots of identical properties. Once an original installation certificate has been generated, ‘cloned’ or duplicated copies can be produced for subsequent periodic installation testing or for minor works certificates after circuit adaptations have been made.

The specially developed software program includes all required 17th edition certification and can print onto ECA, NAPIT and NICEIC stationery. Once transferred to a PC, as well as printing certificates, test data can be stored for records traceability and when re-testing is required the data can be simply transferred back to the tester.
