Welding machine safety without secrets
Ensure safe use of welding and electrical equipment with the Sonel PAT-86 electrical equipment safety meter.
The Sonel PAT-86 advanced meter is perfect for control measurements of welding machines and other electrical devices. The instrument allows to measure parameters having an impact on the safe use of the equipment, such as resistance of protective conductors, insulation resistance, continuity of connections, leakage currents, power, RCD and PRCD. The PAT-86 model is especially dedicated to testing welding equipment according to the EN 60974-4 standard. It allows, among other things, to check the rated voltage of welding equipment in no-load condition, the welding circuit leakage current and the primary leakage current.
The Sonel PAT-86 electrical equipment safety meter will come in handy in those areas where safety is of particular importance. Reliable wherever welders, power tools, three-phase appliances or domestic appliances need to be inspected.
Safety of welding machines outright
PAT-86 is used wherever safety is the most important thing. Ideally suited to situations where it is necessary to check welders, power tools, three-phase devices and household appliances.
PAT-86 was created for testing welding equipment in compliance with EN 60974-4 standard.
Thanks to the extensive measuring part, PAT-86 enables comprehensive checking of electrical devices. The touch screen and autoprocedures section make testing quick and efficient.
The meter cooperates with a label printer and QR scanner, which greatly facilitates the recordkeeping of tools. The following printouts are available:
The whole picture is complemented by a compact and durable housing. It provides instrument protection during both measurements and transport.
The memory has a tree structure. For each device tested it contains its description, location of measurements, customer data and registration number.
The meter provides many modes of transmission of measurement results: via USB, LAN and WiFi. In addition, it is possible to upload the results to a USB stick.
Dedicated PAT Analysis software allows for data management and also reports preparation – in several versions, depending on the user’s needs. In addition, it is possible to use the PAT Server solution. This system allows you to work in many modes, including:
