Now we are in the month of December we are often asked how Christmas tree lights are PAT tested.
Simply treat them as you would any appliance and start with a visual inspection. This will also determine whether they are a Class I or a Class II. Then plug them into your PAT tester and test accordingly. Lastly perform a function test to make sure the lights actually work.
If they don’t, reach for the Technotrend Terminator 10 electronic screwdriver (which we started selling a few years ago instead of the Quick Earth Finder) and following the instructions in its manual, in particular the paragraph on ‘tracking cable’. You might have to touch the cable with the black end of the screwdriver for the neon to fully illuminate.
It is easier to do this in a darkened room so the glow of the red neon can be readily seen. If you go past a bulb and the neon, goes out you know it is faulty or the wire in the cable is broken at this juncture.
We hope you have a bright and twinkling Christmas!
