The Institution of Electrical Engineers Code of Practice for "In-Service Inspection and
Testing of Electrical Equipment" states that the following electrical equipment should be
inspected and tested on a regular basis,
  • Portable Electric Tools
  • Fixed Electrical Equipment- instant water heaters, fridges, lathes, cutters,
  • Portable Electrical Equipment - kettles, toasters,
  • Extension Leads
elex khanyisa has the complete system needed to manage the inspection and
maintenance of the above equipment. We make use of the Seaward Supernova
Portable Appliance Tester (PAT) linked to our electronic database.

The advantage of using a PAT is that all the following tests can be carried out using one test instrument,
  • Earth Continuity Test
  • Earth Bond Test
  • Insulation Resistance Test
  • Earth Leakage Test
  • Flash Test
Our database monitors all equipment and will email the client to inform them that their
equipment will soon need to be re-inspected. Again not all equipment needs to be
inspected every three months, the type of equipment will decide the re-inspection dates,
and this can vary from three months to 24 months.
