Seaward PrimeTest 50 Portable Appliance Tester

5th edition compliant, user-friendly PAT Tester! The new updated 5th Edition PrimeTest 50 now includes a 250V insulation resistance test for testing sensitive and surge protected equipment.

The perfect minimum of fuss, entry-level tester for those with low volume test requirements; capable of testing Class 1, Class 2, Cables and IT equipment, providing clear PASS / FAIL indication on a large LCD display.

Seaward’s unique ‘ZAP’ technology ensures that earth continuity measurements are accurate in situations where other testers struggle to provide reliable measurements, such as measuring through rust, limescale and other surface contamination.

Three test buttons allow the user to select the appropriate test and an internal smart circuit identifies if an appliance or an extension cord is connected.

The tests are Earth Continuity (soft test), Insulation Resistance (500V) and IEC lead test. The Primetest 50 has the capability of basic data logging and label printing when used in conjunction with the Seaward PATMobile app.

The Primetest 50 is tiny compared to the competition; plus being battery operated it‘s lightweight! It fits easily in the palm of your hand and measures only 26 x 10cm.


What can be easier than a simple push-button procedure?

  • Connect your test appliance
  • Simply choose the test you require; either earthed appliance, double insulated appliance, or mains cord testing
  • Push the button
  • This tester gives a simple PASS / FAIL indicator. It could not be easier!

You can also connect the PrimeTest 50 to a power outlet and it will automatically check the socket wiring and mains voltage. It doesn’t get much simpler!
