Proof of Safety for Electricians

Martindale Electric announces the release of the essential safety aid for the working electrician, the VIPD proving package.

Martindale Electric announces the release of the essential safety aid for the working electrician, the VIPD proving package.

The correct method for proving a voltage indicator (shown above) is just like using a PAT tester to check an appliance. Visual test first, then electrical test and flex the leads while testing continuity.

Remember, nothing is more dangerous than trusting a defective voltage indicator to test for a dead circuit. Safe electrical work requires the use of a voltage indicator that has been proved with a proving unit. Voltage indicators should always be tested with a proving unit or known live source before and after use.

The Martindale VIPD proving package contains the PD690 proving unit, VI13700G voltage indicator and FREE carry case worth £17.50 and is available now at £119.65 from all good wholesalers. For further information, visit www.martindale-electric.co.uk or call 01923 650688.

Martindale’s PD690 is a portable, battery powered proving unit for the testing of contact type voltage detectors up to 690V. This unit is suitable for indicators with 230V and 415/440V AC or DC detection ranges, such as the Martindale VI13700G. The PD690 is one of the few proving units to check indicators with ranges above 250V. The PD690 can also check Drummond and other filament lamps due to its output being sufficient to illuminate the bulb. 

Before doing any electrical work, it is essential to be sure the circuit is dead. The Martindale VI13700G voltage indicator fully meets all the GS38, M15/4, HSE, IEC1010 and IEC61243 recommendations. With bright, long-life neon indicators, it checks rapidly and safely for the presence of AC and DC voltages from 50-600V, as required by the Electricity Council Recommendation G9/6. The tough moulded case construction and long life neons, combined with heavy duty, double insulated cable, large finger guard and a retractable, lockable prod sheath makes this the safest, most durable and reliable instrument of its type.
