Concept combines 17th Edition electrical testing and certification

Product News

Seaward has introduced a new concept in 17th edition fixed electrical installation inspection and testing in the shape of the new Powersolution package.

This unique integrated solution eliminates the need for a multi-function test instrument and separate paper or PDA recording devices normally associated with 17th edition test procedures.
The new concept works by incorporating an electronic copy of the inspection and test certificate in a combined multi-function electrical tester and data logger.
The lightweight PowerPlus 1557 multifunction tester has been designed for maximum portability and ease-of-use. Onboard electronic certificate software enables test data to be recorded directly by the tester using a replica of the inspection and test certificate, which is displayed on the instrument.

During inspection and testing, the user can easily navigate around the onboard electronic certificate. When measured circuit values are required, the appropriate measurement function is automatically enabled and results are automatically placed in the correct certificate fields.

Once all inspection and test data has been collected, the onboard Seaward Certificate Assistant will scan the certificate and warn the user if any fields appear to be incomplete or invalid.
The certificate assistance also holds many of the commonly used tabulated values, such as earth loop impedance tables, avoiding the need to take bulky reference material onsite.

When inspection and testing is complete, the certificate held inside the PowerPlus 1557 tester can be transferred to the accompanying PC software for the completion of certificates, which can be printed or supplied in electronic format to customers in line with the 17th edition wiring regulations.
