Martindale VI-13800 Voltage Indicator
The Martindale VI-13800 Voltage Indicators are used to prove that electrical circuits are dead before installation or maintenance work is carried out. This essential tool forms part of the Martindale electrical test equipment product portfolio.
The VI-13800 ensures safety without ranges, switches or batteries to reduce the risk of an incorrect reading. It provides an instant visual AC and DC voltage indication in four stages from 50V up to 400V.
LED indicators give a clear and immediate display of the voltage level range. Martindale VI-13800 features retractable probes, heavy duty finger guards and a two layer, double insulated cable with white inner core to give a clear indication of any damage that could compromise the safety of the user.
Features include a high wattage resistor instead of a fuse which could limit the current in the event of damage to the cable in accordance with BS standards. The protection is built in to the handheld probe assembly to provide superior protection. The tips of the probes have retractable covers which can be locked in place and not get lost.
Martindale VI-13800 replaces the industry standard VI-13700 voltage indicator. This updated design now complies with the new standard BS EN61243-3, relating to 2 pole voltage indicators and the requirements of GS38 Edition 4 2015.
The new VI-13800 is available to purchase on its own or as part of a kit, the VIPD138LOK. The kits includes a Martindale proving unit, combination carry case and locking off devices, enabling full compliance with health and safety recommendations for safe working which require voltage indicators to be proved before and after use and the point of isolation to be locked off with a caution notice.
