Kewtech 18th Edition Ready

Understandably we've already had several queires asking if our instruments will be 18th Edition ready.
According to the draft of the 18th Edition that was published for public consultation, all existing Kewtech installation testers will be compatible with the new regulations. 
However, if you are purchasing new equipment now, you may want to factor in the potential new requirement of increased earth resistance testing. In this case our KT65DL is the multifunction tester to have, as not only can it carry out earth resisitance tests (see the video here), but it also has a PAT testing download function and with the news out today of 60 fires a week due to faulty appliances, we may see more mandatory PAT testing become a requirement.
