16A to 13A adaptor for testing 230V appliances fitted with 16 amp blue plugs. This adapter is suitable for use with all PAT testers that have a standard 13A socket.
The appliance adaptor connects tools and equipment fitted with 16A 230V plugs to a standard PAT tester. This enables the earth continuity, insulation resistance and leakage tests to be carried out.
The blue colour coding is designated for equipment operating at voltages between 200 and 250V. Industrial connectors are commonly used in factories, workshops, agriculture, theatres, and the event industry. They are also widely used for outdoor power applications where protection against the elements is required, such as in the marine and leisure industries.
Industrial connectors are available in 16A, 32A, 63A and 125A sizes, but 16A and 32A are the most often encountered whilst PAT testing. We also have a 32A appliance adaptor available.
These adaptors are constructed with BS EN 60309 connectors made by PCE, a leading manufacturer of high quality connectors based in Austria.
