110V 16A Adaptor
Adapter for PAT testing 110V appliances fitted with 16A yellow industrial plugs.
This adaptor is used to connect 110V tools and equipment fitted with 16A 110V plugs to a standard PAT tester. Battery powered PAT testers can safely carry out earth continuity, insulation resistance and substitute leakage tests on 110V equipment. When using a 230V powered PAT tester, some caution is needed to avoid inadvertently carrying out a leakage or load test at 230V, which will likely damage the 110V equipment under test. For regularly testing 110V equipment, we recommend the Kewtech Ezypat Plus, or Kewtech Smartpat, which can be connected to a 110V supply to safely carry out a leakage and load test at 110V.
Yellow industrial plugs and sockets are typically used for 110V power tools and other electrical equipment on construction sites in the UK. Sizes up to 125A are available, but 16A and 32A are the most often encountered whilst PAT testing. We have also have a 32A 110V appliance adaptor available.
These adaptors are constructed with industrial connectors made by PCE, a leading manufacturer of high quality connectors based in Austria: PC Electric GesmbH
