QWERTY keyboard for maximum operator convenience and speed of use, including fast key selection for instant test selection.
  Testing the increasing number of appliances with filters is now quicker and more convenient thanks to multiple 250/500V insulation Testing.
  Inclusion of two serial ports for the concurrent use of a bar code scanner and a printer. This facility also enables the automatic print out of results immediately after a test has been completed.
  The SuperNova incorporates software which compares successive test results taken on the same item of electrical equipment. This unique software is included as standard to give operators an immediate indication of product degradation and potential faults.

Compatibility with Seaward's PATGuard software, and the FREE software, PATSLite, provides a complete Portable Appliance Testing Solution.
