110V Adaptor Kit
Adapter kit for testing 110V equipment and extension leads with 16A yellow industrial connectors.
The appliance adaptor connects tools and equipment fitted with yellow 16A connectors to a standard PAT tester. This enables the earth continuity, insulation resistance and leakage tests to be carried out.
The extension adaptor allows 16A extension leads to be tested. The adaptor connects the socket/coupler end of the extension lead to the IEC connector on the PAT tester. This creates a circuit enabling the earth continuity, insulation resistance and polarity tests to be carried out.
Battery powered PAT testers can safely test 110V equipment, but when using a mains 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 adaptor kit available.
These adaptors are constructed with industrial connectors made by PCE, a leading manufacturer of high quality connectors based in Austria: PC Electric GesmbH
