Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester Details

The Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester is a plug-and-play PAT tester with a fast start-up time. It has been optimised for testing large volumes of portable appliances. To this end, it includes an extensive internal memory (capacity to hold up to 10 000 records) and an eclectic range of electrical safety checks. This instrument is ideal for ensuring compliance with the IET 4th Edition Code of Practice.

The tests available on the Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester are:

  • Low current earth continuity test with Zap circuit, guaranteeing accurate measurements
  • Insulation resistance
  • IEC lead test
  • Protective conductor current
  • Touch current
  • Load power/current
  • Alternative leakage current
  • RCD test
  • Power socket test

This portable appliance tester is also able to perform point-to-point fixed appliance testing for earth continuity and insulation resistance and includes an integrated electrical risk assessment tool with a retest calculator, which allows the user to ascertain a suggested retest period.

In addition to this, the user may create up to 100 customised electrical test and visual inspection sequences. 

The Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester is an updated version of the Apollo 500 and many of its updates have been included to increase the efficiency and improve the ease-of-use of this instrument. For further information regarding these updates, please see below.

What’s New?

Firmware Update

The Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester’s updated firmware makes performing tests, reviewing data and navigating its interface easier. Some of the improvements made to the firmware are:

  • New user permissions for Bluetooth
  • USB on-the-go technology allows the user to download information onto an android device
  • Downloaded files can be saved with unique identifiers making file location easier
  • The option to print test results automatically has been added to the ‘After Test’ function
  • The addition of a Review Step allows the user to check test details prior to making any final comments
  • Delete option allows the user to remove unwanted results
  • Updates to the ‘View Data Menu’ have made scrolling faster and searching more effective; the user is able to filter data using various specifications, such as the PASS/FAIL status of each test.
  • Options may be deleted from the predictive drop-down menus, allowing the user to tailor the PAT tester to his/her requirements
  • The asset’s ID is displayed on every test screen
  • The new socket outlet test allows the user to measure main voltage and outlet wiring polarity
  • Leakage test settings include options for ‘Worst’ and ‘Last’ results

As well as these new and improved features, the updates made to the Apollo 500+’s firmware also facilitates its ability to read and print QR codes provided it is used in conjunction with the following OPTIONAL accessories:

  • Seaward Test ‘n’ Tag Elite 2 Printer – print labels with unique QR data codes
  • Seaward Bluetooth 2D Elite Barcode Scanner – scans QR codes allowing the Apollo 500+ to access previous test information which automatically populates its test fields, allowing the Apollo 500+ to perform retests quickly and easily.
  • FREE Seaward QR Data Viewer App (for Android or iOS) – scan QR codes to view test information which may be shared via email.

Software Compatibility

As well as its compatibility with QR scanners and printers, and Bluetooth, the Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester may be used with Seaward’s PAT Guard 3.4 Software with Time Manager (sold separately).

This software allows the user to view and analyse data, organise it into professional reports, and manage a team of workers.

Hardware Update

The Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester’s updated physical design also adds to its adaptability, versatility and practicality.

Like its predecessor, the Seaward Apollo 500, this instrument includes a QWERTY keyboard and colour, high-definition display. However; this instrument differs in that it includes a removable, interchangeable, rechargeable battery pack; it is also able to derive power from a mains supply, thereby keeping downtime to a minimum.

Furthermore, the Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester is supplied with improved test leads, featuring stronger PVC insulation, and more resilient probes, both of which make it suitable for more demanding applications.

The Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester is a more sophisticated version of the Apollo 500, making it ideal for comprehensively testing a large volume of portable appliances.
