Proof of safety for electricians

04 December 2008

Martindale Electric has released an essential safety
aid, the VIPD proving package. 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 carry case. The 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.

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 for the presence of AC and DC voltages from 50-600V, as required by the Electricity Council Recommendation G9/6.
