Now available from Martindale Electric is the portable and sleek PD700 Proving Device, designed for the testing of contact voltage detectors up to 700V.??The most important safety consideration must be to ensure that all circuits and equipment which are being worked on are proved to be dead.
Whilst the most obvious way to do this is to lock off a circuit and ensure no live source exists by means of a voltage indicator, how do you know your voltage indicator is performing correctly? The PD700 Proving Unit from Martindale Electric offers users of voltage indicators enhanced operator safety as it can generate high voltages up to 700V but also lower voltages down to 50V which can still be potentially dangerous.
Suitable for use with Drummond Test Lamps, Digital Multimeters and Low Impedance Voltage Testers to ensure they are working correctly, the PD700 also features an indicator which illuminates when lamps and voltage testers draw high currents. Lightweight and compact for easy transportation between sites, the PD700 will go a long way to ensure compliance with safe working practices.
