Testing and verification

The machine manufacturer or the installer of the UCC T5 is responsible for ensuring that the following testing and verification is performed to the appropriate standard:

  • Verification that the electrical equipment is in compliance with the technical documentation
  • Continuity testing of the protective bonding circuit
  • Insulation resistance tests
  • Functional tests, particularly those related to safety and safeguarding

NOTE:  It is strongly recommended that any measuring equipment is regularly checked for accuracy.  An initial ‘pass off' test should be performed prior to normal use.
