Safe isolation system
25 November 2015
Martindale Electric has supplied Worcester, Bosch Group with VIPD138 safe isolation kits.
The VI-13800 allows Worcester, Bosch Group engineers to prove the installations they are working on in the field are dead and avoid potentially hazardous live voltages.
The VIPD138 contains the VI-13800 voltage indicator and the PD440 proving unit together with a carry case for storing both units. This enables Worcester, Bosch Group engineers to comply with health and safety recommendations for safe working and minimise the risk of possible accidents during their work while at the same time being a convenient and easy to use tool. The VI13800 is said to be reliable and safe because it’s simple, with no batteries, ranges or switches to worry about.
Martin Andrews, field service support engineer at Worcester, Bosch Group who conducted the research and completed the purchase, said: "Martindale has been very efficient and we are very pleased with our purchase; our engineers can do their jobs easier and feel safer."
The VI-13800 is capable of measuring voltage range of 50-600V AC/DC, fully complies with BS EN61243-3:2010 and has a high wattage resistor in the probe that will limit the current in the event of damage to the cable.
