Out Board launch PAT and Cable test systems

Out Board Electronics with longstanding software associates Data Strategy has launched a new incarnation of its electrical safety test and logging systems.

The PAT-MK4 test processor has been re-designed from the ground up incorporating a 32-bit RISC ARM processor to allow it to be configured to a wide range of emerging international test standards such as the imminent British Standard BS EN 62638.
The revamped PAT Data test automation and database logging software not only controls and records the tests but also provides an audit-trail for all aspects of warehouse safety inspection plus prep, pick, despatch and return logistics.
Complex layered tests can be individually user-defined for special items such as IWB’s and stage boxes, and sub-hired equipment can be temporarily tested and logged as guest items.
Test results are updated in real-time at an individual asset level for each item, and detailed PAT manifests are generated to go out with the job.  Non-electrical items can also be covered by their own preparation procedures and reports, including LOLER data forms for inspection of lifting devices.
