More info

The SafeTcheck S8 has been designed to comply with Australian Standards AS/NZS 61010.1 to maximize user safety. Provides earth continuity, insulation resistance, leakage current testing.

Testing the electrical safety of appliances with the SafeTcheck S8 Portable Appliance Tester is simple and fast. Accuracy and operator safety are the key features built into the unit.

All tests are pre-programmed with test voltages, currents and test durations automatically configured. This provides an elevated level of operator safety and minimises operator error and stops unauthorised personnel changing critical test routines.

The SafeTcheck S8 tests the safety of Class 1 (earthed) appliances, Class 2 (double insulated) appliances, 3 Phase appliances (optional), Fixed and Portable RCD’s and extension leads in accordance with the Australian standard.

COMMON APPLIANCES TESTS

EARTHED APPLIANCES CLASS l insulation resistance test isolated from protective earth

Suitable appliance category for testing any earthed equipment. Recognised as an appliance with exposed metal parts This test is conducted with the standard 500VDC. electrical strength test. Applied to obtain an insulation resistance figure which is required to be above 1 M ohm. for a PASS result.

  1. Select EARTHED APPLIANCES
  2. Press START

Measures: Electrical continuity (A –N) …………….. less than 100k ohm……………………………….. for PASS
Earth resistance (socket earth to chassis earth with earth probe connect)…….less than 1 ohm…….PASS
Insulation resistance (A , N shorted to EARTH)………..greater than 1M ohm……………………PASS






DOUBLE INSULATED CLASS ll insulation resistance test isolated from protective earth


Suitable appliance category for testing any double insulated equipment. Recognised as an appliance with no exposed metal parts. It may have a 2 or 3 pin plug where the latter has a functional and protective earth cord. The standard double appliance insulation strength test at 500Vdc.. A cloak or probe must be employed in contact with the insulation surfaces of the appliance during test, until completed.

  1. Select DOUBLE INSULATED
  2. Press START

Measures: Electrical continuity (A –N) …………….. less than 100k ohm………………………………..for PASS
Insulation resistance (A , N shorted to CLOAK)………..greater than 1M ohm………………… PASS




LEADS Class l and Class ll insulation resistance test required to be isolated from protective earth


Suitable appliance category for testing any earthed leads or power boards. This test is conducted with the standard 500VDC. electrical strength test. Applied to obtain an insulation resistance figure which is required to be above 1 M ohm. for a PASS result.

  1. Select LEADS
  2. Press START

Measures: Electrical continuity (A –N) …………….. less than 100k ohm………………………………..for PASS
Polarity A-N swap Short circuit between A-N Earth resistance (socket earth to chassis earth with earth probe connect)…….less than 1 ohm…….PASS
Insulation resistance (A - N short to EARTH)………..greater than 1M ohm……………………PASS

If power boards are to be tested, all outlet sockets are to be tested individually.

2 wire or figure 8 leads

For 2 wire leads a prompt warning will be displayed detecting no earth.

"Two conductor lead?"
"START (Y) RESET (N)"

  • Press START (second prompt):

"Fit conductive cloak and connect to front panel socket before proceeding"

  • Press START (to run test)

Measures: Electrical continuity (A –N) …………….. less than 100k ohm………………………………..for PASS
Polarity A-N swap (Not important)
Short circuit between A-N Insulation resistance (A - N short to Earth Test Probe or Cloak)…greater than 1M ohm…… …PASS

The optional Conductive Cloak is vital for test integrity. This provides the return path for dangerous leakage currents. Wrap entire lead with conductive cloak and connect to earth probe. Click on image below for purchasing information.


OTHER APPLIANCES TESTS

CLASS l 250V insulation resistance test

Suitable appliance category for testing any earthed equipment with protection devices installed that have failed the standard earthed appliance insulation strength test at 500Vdc. There must be evidence that the appliance tested does have a protection device installed.

  1. Select CLASS l 250V from OTHER APPLIANCE
  2. Press START

Measures: Electrical continuity (A –N) …………….. less than 100k ohm……………………………….. for PASS
Earth resistance (socket earth to chassis earth with earth probe connect)…….less than 1 ohm…….PASS
Insulation resistance (A -N short to EARTH)……….. greater than 1M ohm……………………PASS


CLASS ll 250 V insulation resistance test

Suitable appliance category for testing any double insulated equipment with protection devices installed that have failed the standard earthed appliance insulation strength test at 500Vdc. There must be evidence that the appliance tested does have protection devices installed. A cloak or probe must be employed in contact with the insulation surfaces of the appliance during testing until complete.

  1. Select CLASS ll 250V from OTHER APPLIANCE
  2. Press START

Measures: Electrical continuity (A –N) …………….. less than 100k ohm………………………………..for PASS
Insulation resistance (A - N to CLOAK/PROBE)………..greater than 1M ohm………………… PASS


CLASS l Run test

Suitable appliance category for testing any earthed equipment in which insulation testing has failed electrical continuity test. The appliance has a soft switch (see definitions). Run tests can be dangerous to the operator. Ensure the equipment is in-service and wear appropriate protective clothing before use.

  1. Select CLASS l Run test from OTHER APPLIANCE
  2. Press START Use RUN TEST socket
  3. Press START WARNING! Appliance will operate…...Ensure moving parts are free to move
  4. Press START Testing in progress

Measures: Electrical continuity (A –N) …………….. less than 100k ohm……………………………….. for PASS
Earth resistance (socket earth to chassis earth with earth probe connect)…….less than 1 ohm…….PASS
Leakage current (A and N to earth chassis and SE) …….. less than 5mA.………………… PASS


CLASS ll Run test Read and repeat CLASS 1 instruction as above carefully

Measures: Electrical continuity (A –N) …………….. less than 100k ohm………………………………..for PASS
Leakage current (A and N to CLOAK) ….. less than 1mA.………………… PASS
Use the cloak class ll return socket which is internally connected to protective earth.
