Pat Tester For Your Multi Function Tester...

Recommended Posts

golfpaul

Im looking to swap my pat tester for a 17th ed MFT.

Ive an Ethos 9300, in excellent condition, comes with case, test lead, a copy of the CoP and some labels/fuses/plugs.

The full spec can be found here: Ethos 9300 Mains Manual Tester - Ethos Security Products

Its also calibrated until October.

Just looking for a MFT, can be basic, just needs to be up to the job.

I can come to you if in the North West.

Cheers

Mmmmm....   Portable Appliance Tester Tester....   (PAT   already has the word tester as the "T" bit)

 

I would hazard a guess that you would probably do better offering a price for your PAT... 

Then use any cash generated toward an MFT...

 

 

I cannot see any logical reason why anyone would swap an MFT for a P.A.Tester.....

 

unless they are the sort of person who would swap a push bike for a motorbike  (or vice-versa).?

Thanks for your input, if not a little pedantic.

The fact that neither a PAT Tester nor a 17th Edition test actually exists makes Me hard work? neither term is recognised by the City & Guilds for any of their examinations.

That's fair enough.

But that said, we all know what they are don't we.

golfpaul,

Welcome to the forum.

 

We can seem a little pedantic, however, it is done in an attempt to ensure that the learners learn the correct terminology, and to try to eliminate some of the ambiguity that arises from the incorrect use of terms.

 

Please humour me for a moment, I'm NOT taking the mickey I promise, and I hope that this can go a way to explain:

 

mV / MV / kV / KV

 

Which is the odd one out in the 4 "abbreviations" above & why?
