*please note - PrimeTest 100 does not have a backlight

Key Features

A Versatile Tester

It’s a PAT tester, an IEC Lead Tester and a Power Socket Tester all in one super compact unit. This product provides everything you need for basic testing facilities.

Easy Use

Testing with the Primetest 100 couldn’t be easier. In fact, it only takes the press of a button to choose your testing mode.

Hand-Sized –Highly Portable

Comprehensive handheld Manual PAT tester

Intuitive and easy to use

Automatic mains detection & leakage test selection

3 phase leakage testing

The handheld PrimeTest 250 PAT tester features all of the electrical safety tests required to meet the IEE Code of Practice including RCD trip time, protective conductor current and touch current. The unit also includes a 250V DC insulation test suitable for testing sensitive electrical appliances and surge protected leads, and can test 3 phase industrial plant and equipment*. Connecting this battery-powered tester to a mains supply allows protective conductor current or touch current measurements to be made automatically. All electrical safety tests are carried out against pre-set limits with measured test result values and clear PASS/FAIL indication on a large display.

*Adaptor required for 3 phase testing.
