Hi there,
I have a simple and probably stupid question. I have a Kewtech KT72. I am PAT testing equipment (PC's etc) at work...however the Kewtech does not do a power on test. I assume I just go with a leakage test instead. I am also assuming that I test the IEC leads and label as OK and the the PC and Label as OK.

Sorry to be a der but I want to make sure I am doing this right...it's been a few years since I did it.

Hi cobby

I think i have the answer to your question as i have a Kewtech KT71 which i no longer use, which is a mains powered PAT which therefore is able to carry out a run test, unlike your KT72 which i believe is a battery powered and therefore it will be unable to carry out a run test and only performs a leakage test as you stated along with the normal tests of continuity, insulation etc.

Hope this is of some help.

Steve.
