In-Service Inspection and Testing of 230 & 110 Volt Equipment in South Wales
WILL WE BE INCONVENIENCED?
Tel: 07850 656765 - email@example.com volt equipment will need to be unplugged from its electric socket, so
obviously it will be out of use during
the inspection and testing procedure (however, I may be able to carry out the important 'earth
continuity' test on some of this equipment, even when it is switched on and running, providing
there is a spare electric socket very close by). With 110 volt site equipment such as power
tools, extension cables and step-down transformers, etc., it would be appreciated, if at all
possible, if the
equipment could be put in one area for me to work on.When working in offices, I typically inspect and test the equipment at one
desk at a time, which allows everyone else to get on with their work undisturbed. Typically, the
desk set-up with a computer, monitor, printer, table lamp, phone charger, extension lead, etc.,
will take about fifteen to twenty
minutes to carry out all of the tests, and so the user would be without his/her computer for
that length of time. I normally carry out just a limited number of tests on
items such as computer file servers, network routers/switches, video recorders, clocks, central
heating systems, burglar alarms, etc., to avoid system-critical downtime
and potential problems with restarting or reprogramming the equipment.I can typically inspect and test around twenty-five items per hour, which
includes smaller items
such as power leads, etc. If suitable and convenient to both parties, and also if it doesn't
invalidate the client's business insurance, the
work could be carried out outside normal office hours.
