Hi Andysuds

We are not PAT testers as we only write the SimplyPats software but we have a Fluke 6500-2 in the office so I have checked it out this morning.

Have you purchased the 6500-2 110 adapter cable? You will need this to connect to the powercon style connector on the front of the Fluke 6500-2.

(EXTL100 Extension Lead Test Adapter Part Number 2414348)

Reading from the manual:

Tests at 110 V are only available when the Tester is powered by 110 V mains. When using the 110 V front panel adapter, remove all connections to the 230 V test socket.

You can then use the IEC test button to test the lead. I believe this is at 10Amps 500v

Do you have the manual? It is supplied in PDF format on the CD that came with the tester, however if you haven't got it I can send you a link where you can download it.

It may be worth contacting Fluke to double check?
