  • Earth continuity – is the earth bonded to the neutral properly and is the earthing conductor resistance low enough to permit the passage of current necessary to operate the over current protective device?
  • Insulation resistance – is the resistance between all live conductors and earth as high as it should be? (Tested using 250V DC or 500V DC selectable).
  • Polarity – is the active and neutral wired correctly and are there no other transpositions?
  • Correct circuit connections – is the earth connected and at a safe potential?
  • Earth fault loop impedance (without tripping RCDs*1) – is the total loop resistance of the active and earth wires as low as it should be so that protective devices will operate?
  • Residual current device (earth leakage detector or Safety Switch) operation – does it really work and trip in time at the correct residual current at the power outlet?
  • Extension leads – test these, power boards, double adaptors etc.
  • Supply voltage – is the mains supply within - 6% and + 10% of the specified 230V AC? (Other voltages to order).
  • Mains frequency – is it alternating at 50Hz?"
