TEST & TAG
Electrical testing and tagging is a process by which an electrical portable appliance is inspected and tested for electrical safety under the Joint Australian New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 3760:2010 (In-service safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment). The testing intervals of appliances are set out in the AS/NZS 3760:2010 Testing Interval Timetable.
Service Disclaimer here.

Electrical thermal imaging is a non-invasive test method that is used to detect temperature differences in electrical installations, therefore showing the warmer objects against cooler backgrounds. When electrical components begin to deteriorate they tend to generate excess heat, which is emitted in the form of infrared radiation. Excessive heat can create failures in your electrical system and can also end up in electrical fires.
WHY IS ELECTRICAL THERMAL IMAGING IMPORTANT?
During the inspection, an infrared camera is used to detect the temperature differences within the electrical system. Once the images are done, a thermal pattern can be analysed and calculated to determine the temperature and severity of hotspots. Therefore, the electrical thermal imaging inspection is important because it reduces the risk of fires and failures in your distribution boards, meter rooms, and data centers. By having an early detection you will keep your business in good health.
With the fast-growing electric vehicle supply equipment in New Zealand, you can count on us to have your Electric Vehicle Supply inspected by one of our Electrical Inspectors.
The Health & Safety at Work Act 2015 states that all equipment in the workplace must be safe to use. Therefore, if your company owns an Electric Vehicle (EV) we recommend you to have your electric car charger assessed by one of our experienced Electrical Inspectors. Your charging unit is assessed through physical, functional, and electrical measurements. Upon the completion of your EVSE inspection, our Thermal Scheduler will send you an email with a link that contains all your (pass and/or fails) reports, therefore giving you permanent access to them.
The report(s) will advise if the item(s) satisfies or does not satisfy the requirements of “Electric Vehicle Charging Safety Guidelines”. The periodic assessment of EVSE items is done yearly and you decide if you would like to set up your EVSE inspection as a one-off or as ongoing scheduled maintenance.
We test fire extinguishers, fire hose reels, and fire blankets in accordance with NZS 4503:2005 (New Zealand Standard for Hand Operated Fire-Fighting Equipment). Our testing is done through our TESTntel System which captures all details including location, time, date of inspection, equipment details, test results, and even tracks the GPS location.
Every year our Senior Electrical Service Technicians take part in a fire extinguisher course provided by a reputable company to gain knowledge in the operation of the several types of fire extinguishers and the different classes of fire.
We also photograph faulty appliances and store this to validate the corrective action required. We immediately replace faulty or inappropriate extinguishers, signage, blankets, and hose reels upon request. Additionally, we are able to discard expired fire extinguishers at no additional cost.
We can inspect fire extinguishers located in buildings, vehicles, and even boats. By having your fire equipment regularly inspected you ensure that you and your staff have the appropriate tools in case of a fire emergency. All of our inspections are followed by a detailed report that can be sent to you upon request. Our Scheduled Maintenance Reminder system ensures that you are in control of your next fire inspection appointment.
AS/NZS 3551:2012 (Management Program for Medical Equipment Standard) outlines the procedures required to develop maintenance and management programs for medical equipment.
Our TESTntel System incorporates AS/NZS 3551:2012 verification standards in our testing parameters when checking your medical devices. This involves testing according to the original equipment manufacturer's requirement. In addition to that, the TESTntel System enables these detail checks to be carried out on all mainstream medical devices in the marketplace.
TESTntel can also provide an annual load test for compliance with Standard AS-ISO-10535 for patient lifting hoists. This is done in conjunction with the annual mechanical service and performance verification checks.
An electronic report is generated at the time of the testing with key information such as location, appliance description, test results, and recommendation for the faulty equipment. Failed devices that require repair, calibration, or maintenance will be emailed to the Property Manager/Facility Manager, supplier, or maintenance provider including photographs, date, time, and corrective action. You can ask for a demonstration of our TESTntel system and have confidence in the services being provided with transparency and assurance.
All Automated External Defibrillators should be tested yearly or bi-yearly. TESTntel has the test equipment and can perform all the required checks on all mainstream AED equipment in the marketplace.

Our trained technicians are able to install, inspect, replace batteries and provide your site with essential AED equipment.
