Megger has introduced an app designed to provide users with a set of software tools to help them carry out portable appliance testing (PAT) more easily and efficiently. The PAT Toolbox app is available in versions for both Apple iOS and Android devices.

PAT testing app

The first section of the app, which is available now and is free to download and use, provides a range of essential cable calculation functions.

Two additional sections will soon be available to purchase for a nominal sum, the first covering risk assessment and retest frequency guidance and the second offering a searchable knowledge base for PAT. All sections incorporate a help system that can be accessed with a tap of the screen.

PAT Toolbox sections

  • The free section of the Megger app provides a fast and convenient way of calculating the expected resistance of appliance leads and extension leads to allow an accurate comparison to be made with the measured resistance. It also indicates the maximum current capacity of the lead, the maximum extension lead length for the cross-sectional area of lead being used and the minimum cross-sectional area for the fuse that is fitted. It also warns that the lead should be protected by an RCD.
  • The paid-for section of the app dealing with risk assessment guides users step by step through a decision-making process that will help them to decide on an optimum retest frequency for the appliance under test.
  • The knowledge base section ensures users always have a comprehensive guide to PAT procedures at their fingertips, together with key facts about PAT and PAT requirements, removing the need to carry around printed reference material.
