    Hi, so I started a pat testing job in a big factor a couple of days ago, an I raised a question to my boss about if 3 phase equipment will be tested but he was unsure. Am I right to think that it does get tested? If so he has a new seaward pat tester and I wondered if its easy enough to do this and how you would do the test?

    It should be tested, but whether or not you're doing the testing depends on what limitations have been agreed with the client.

    You'd test it the same way as single phase equipment - connect all live connectors together (including neutral) and test to CPC.
