Using the Megger PAT 4 DV/3 with SimplyPats 6.0.3 And Above.

Megger PAT 4 Client Site and Location Data, what is downloaded to SimplyPats?

The Megger PAT 4 gives you the option of entering Client Details (Client Name and Address) and Site Details(Site Name and Address), however at this current time SimplyPats will only pickup details entered into the following fields;

Client Name (Displayed in the Site field in SimplyPats)
Site Name (Displayed in the Location field in SimplyPats)

Alternatively you can use the choose to use Room Id field on the PAT4 to supply the Location field in SimplyPats - this is probably the easier option.

The Address fields listed under the Client Name and Site Name on the PAT4 are ignored.

(For more information relating to entering the Client Site and Location into the Megger PAT 4, please refer to pages 14 – 18 of the Megger PAT 4 User Manual)

What Fields on the PAT4 can SimplyPats use?

The Megger PAT 4 can store a lot of information entered by the user at the time of testing.

SimplyPats can download and display much of this information, however it is dependent on the settings the user has chosen from the Settings > System Settings > PAT Settings screen within SimplyPats.

In SimplyPats 6.0.3 and above there are data fields to accomodate almost all of the data that the PAT4 can collect.


Prior to performing the actual test, the user has the option of entering the following information into the Megger PAT 4

Asset ID

Displayed in the Appliance ID field of SimplyPats, the Asset ID is picked up as standard.

Group

Displayed in the Test Code field of SimplyPats, the Group Code is picked up as standard

Serial Number

This can either be used to enter the Appliance Serial number, it is then stored in the Appliance Serial Number field in Simplypats as standard or, PAT4 users who are contractors can use this field for Price and Repair information (Codes), the information is then displayed in the Price and Repair fields of SimplyPats.

In the Settings > System Settings > PAT Settings screen in SimplyPats you will see the option “On download from the Megger PAT4 DV/3” If you are using the SimplyPats Price and Repair Codes, tick the box that says “Use Serial No field for Charge Repair Codes”

If you don't tick this box then the Serial Number entered on the PAT4 will be displayed in the Appliance Serial Number field in SimplyPats

Asset Description

Displayed in the Appliance Description field of SimplyPats, the Asset Description is picked up as standard.

Room ID

Information entered here can be downloaded used for the Location field in SimplyPats or stored in the Notes field in SimplyPats.

In the Settings > System Settings > PAT Settings screen in SimplyPats you will see the option “Use Room Id for Location”
If you tick this box then the Room Id field on the PAT4 will appear in the Location field in SimplyPats.

Retest Frequency

What Fields on the Megger PAT4 can be displayed in the Notes Field of SimplyPats?

The Notes Field in SimplyPats has the ability to store any type of information, however at this current time it can only take and display information downloaded from one field within the PAT Tester.

In the Settings > System Settings > PAT Settings screen of SimplyPats, you can choose what information you would like to Download from the PAT Tester and display in the Notes field within SimplyPats, this will largely depend on what field you have used on the PAT. Remember, apart from the Serial Number Field (Used for Charge and Repair Codes), we can only pick up the information in one other field (See Above), the options are as follows:

Nothing
Serial Number
VA Rating
Repair Number
Room ID
