The highly popular Kyoritsu 6201A, is a small, robust and highly reliable portable appliance tester from Kyoritsu. The 6201A provides the required testing facilities for checking appliances in accordance with AS/NZS3760. The unit features an LCD display, providing results values, and an LED display clearly indicates PASS/FAIL status. Its unique colour coded design helps users identify the appropriate test sequences and makes it popular among training institutions.


The Kyoritsu 6201A features earth continuity testing, insulation testing, polarity testing and current leakage testing as part of an auto test sequence. The 6201A additionally features a 10A current leakage (run test), allowing electronically switched items to be tested fully.

A load test ensures the appliance is always in the 'on' position before being tested, and FAIL results are indicated by LED indication along with a FAIL buzzer, alarming the user both visually and audibly. A 10A earth bond test ensures earth conductors are thoroughly tested, while a volt meter function and Null/Zero earth resistance function add to the many useful features making the 6201A great, reliable all-rounder.
