I have to write one of the following phrases into a formal mail

  1. I would like to know if you can provide an adaptor for the (name of the equipment) for testing these two type of sensors :

  2. I would like to know if you can provide an adaptor for the (name of the equipment) to test these two type of sensors :

Should I use 'for testing' or 'to test'?

  • 'adaptator' -> probably 'adaptor' or 'adapter'

Both will be understood, neither seems problematic.

To be be really picky, unless the adaptor itself does the testing (and I guess it does not) to test is not quite the right flavour. for testing has a more indirect feeling, so I think is slightly better. However I would probably be more explicit

... an adaptor that will enable testing of these two types of sensors.
