The Earth Bond Test
- Checks the connection on the earth wire from the pin of the plug to the bodywork of the appliance
- The PAT Tester gives a resistance reading, this resistance reading indicates how good the connection to earh is.
- For appliances the pass value is normally (0.1 + RΩ) where R is the cable resistance.
- If a reading is less than 0.1Ω the result is PASS
