High intensity LEDs

05 July 2016

Now available from Martindale Electric is the latest generation of Drummond test lamps using high intensity LEDs for live voltage indication.

The use of high intensity LEDs has transformed the test lamp, enabling the display of discrete voltages levels over a 360 degree viewing angle, even in bright sunlight and for the most difficult of applications. The visibility from all angles is said to be unique when compared to conventional two pole testers and with no batteries or ranges to worry about, it's the simplest and safest way to prove dead when carrying out safe isolation procedures.

Featuring four distinctive bands of LED illumination, the MTL10 and MTL20 test lamps provide safe and clear indication for voltages above 50, 100, 200 and 400 volts. Gone are the days of using lamp brightness to determine the voltage. The discrete voltage levels allow accurate identification of potentially lethal voltages and enable electrical professionals to distinguish between 110V, 230V and phase to phase voltages in a 3 phase system.

Designed to optimise user safety, the new range of test lamps from Martindale Electric feature a finger shield to minimise the risk of accidental contact with a live conductor and insulated probe tips, with only 4mm of exposed metal. For difficult applications where access is limited, the detachable probes can be replaced with right angled or straight probes from 3cm to 13cm long, which can be rotated and locked in place, enabling easy access to measurement points in crowded cabinets.
