Uni-T UT528AU Portable Appliance Tester

Uni-T UT528AU Portable Appliance Tester


The UT528AU PAT tester from Uni-T is now available and configured to AS/NZS electrical standards. The UT528AU is the new version of the UT527/UT528 PAT testing machine that conducts tests on Class I and Class II appliances, as well as extension, leads using a separate test sequence. Using a simple three-button operation the Uni-T is easy to use and handy for individuals who would prefer a simple PAT instrument.

The Uni-T UT528AU carries out the basic required tests upon selection of the appliance type (Class I / Class II / Extension Lead) in an automatic test sequence and displays the readings and PASS/FAIL status at the end of the test. Aside from the basic test requirements the UT528AU PAT Tester also has the following features inbuilt:

  • Zero Earth Lead function: Used to zero out resistance built up within the earth test lead to avoid inflated Earth Bond readings as a result.
  • 250V Insulation Test option: In addition to the standard test voltage at 500V, a lower voltage of 250V can be selected. This is ideal when testing extension leads with surge protection.
  • 30m Long Lead Test: Activated when testing extension leads exceeding 30m in length. This increases the earth resistance allowance in accordance with guidelines for long extension leads.

The Uni-T UT528AU is capable of testing all standard appliances fitted with a 240V plug and all standard 240V 13A extension leads and IEC leads. Using a low test current exclusively at 200mA  the Uni-T UT528AU is also safe for testing any IT equipment.

The UT528 comes supplied in a hard plastic carry case that holds the instrument and accessories, The kit also includes an earth bond lead with probe and clip, 230V extension lead adaptor, earth nulling adaptor, 6 x C cell batteries and instruction manual.
