Hi Brett, First of all thanks for your comments.

It seems a shame that whilst the Barcode scanner works with your PAT tester it cannot be used to scan information into all the fields. As you have siad, this is a limititation with the firmware of your PAT tester. It's a pity as you well realsise being able to scan barcodes can significantly speed up PAT testing in the field.

Scanning the Appliance Id into the PAT tester is all well and good but often with repeated items such as testcode, location, retest period etc it will be nice to be able to scan those in also.

All the manufacturers PAT tester firmware's are different, but if we get time it would be good to have a list of all of the PAT testers on the market and exactly what fields on each of those testers can be scanned using a barcode scanner. A guess this project may take some time but I will put it in our to do list.

Regards, Richard.
