Lightweight installation tester

The SureTest installation tester from IDEAL INDUSTRIES NETWORKS DIVISION is a compact, easy to use and ergonomically designed unit that weighs just 675g - around 50% lighter than other testers on the market.

In order to deal with new technology developments and stricter legislation, electrical contractors have had to acquire increased knowledge and skills. New technologies, such as renewable energy generation, combined heat and power (CHP) systems, small scale embedded

SureTest complies with BS7671: 2008 (17th Edition) IEE Wiring Regulations and is EN61557 compliant. Within seconds, the device can take accurate loop impedance measurements that won’t trip RCDs. The device is able to measure frequency and phase rotation in three-phase installations and includes a calibration certificate.

An Auto-RCD feature helps save time on the job, eliminating the need for an electrician to go back and forth to the distribution board, says the company. The device also calculates and displays both Prospective Short Circuit Current (PSCC) and Prospective Earth Fault Current (PEFC), providing fast, error-free reporting.

A separate Ramp Test enables the user to quickly identify RCDs that are prone to nuisance tripping. The tester ramps up the applied current until the RCD trips and then displays the reading on screen. When testing continuity, a smart ‘null’ feature zeros out any test lead resistance, reducing measurement errors.

Insulation test voltages of 250, 500 and 1,000V are provided, as well as a remote test probe that helps electricians perform tests in awkward, hard-to-reach locations.

The SureTest SureTest kit comes with a set of detachable test leads, a switched remote test probe, crocodile clips, traceable calibration certificates, hard copy user guide, and a padded carrying case that stores the tester and all its accessories safely inside. has a simple, uncluttered front panel and menu structure, making it easy to use. The device also benefits from an ultra-lightweight, rugged OLED display (similar to the latest mobile phones).

generators and solar photovoltaic power supply systems require additional regulations. Residual Current Devices (RCDs) are increasingly being utilised in wiring installations, which means electricians require accurate, rapid non-trip loop testing devices.
