Martindale VI-15000 Voltage Indicator
The Martindale VI-15000 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-15000 extends the Martindale range of industry standard voltage indicators into higher voltage applications.
The new Martindale VI-15000 Voltage Indicator has a 1000V CATIV safety rating and LED indication for AC/DC voltages between 50V and 690V and above. This ensures compliance with health and safety recommendations for safe working in all BS EN61010 standard installation categories.
Based on the Martindale VI-3800, the new CATIV design does not only provide improved protection against voltage transients, but also includes a high wattage resistor that will limit the current in the event of damage to the cable in accordance with BS EN61243-3. The protection is built in the handheld probe assembly rather than just in the instrument to provide superior protection.
Fully compliant with HSE GS38 regulations, the Martindale VI-15000 comes complete with heavy duty two layer double insulated leads with a contrasting inner sheath to easily highlight cable damage. The tester features bright LEDs to clearly identify the voltage present in five levels with thresholds of up to 690V.
The voltage indicator, which requires no batteries, will identify both AC and DC sources and show polarity.
A heavy duty, double insulated cable, large finger guard and a retractable, lockable prod sheath make this the safest, most durable and reliable instrument of its type.
Martindale VI-15000 is available to purchase on its own or as part of a kit. The kit includes a Martindale high voltage 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.
