For my installation at least, there are two types of testing that I need to do for whatever equipment I am using. First of all, I need to make sure that whatever it is works as it should. Sometimes, this is simply a matter of switching the device on and running it for a few minutes; other times one needs to run a variety of tests and over a number of days, in order to be able to properly note variations in fine detail.
The second type of testing requires a much longer period of time and is basically a rehearsal for the installation itself. In this situation I am testing to see whether the equipment will run as it should under duress for a week, or whatever the run of the installation is.
My replacement plus remaining amps arrived today and they are all working as they should – so they have passed the first test. Now, we’ll see if they pass the second!
