VeriSafe ™ Absence of Voltage Tester
The Safe Way to Verify the Absence of Voltage.

When servicing electrical equipment, workers must comply with safety regulations that require a voltage verification test to validate the absence of voltage. This process includes a number of stages that can be complex and time-consuming when using hand-held portable test instruments.

The VeriSafe ™ Absence of Voltage Tester from Panduit simplifies this process by automating the voltage verification process.

Once installed, a simple push of a button enables qualified electrical workers to verify the absence of voltage and see an active indication when the absence of voltage is confirmed. This provides a new and innovative way to safely, reliably, and efficiently verify the absence of voltage before accessing potentially dangerous electrical equipment.

Key Features Benefits
Improved Safety & Risk Reduction Determine voltage status BEFORE equipment is accessed Prevents direct exposure to electrical hazards
Increased Productivity Easy to use, initiate test with the push of a button No additional tools required Provides visual alert to abnormal power conditions
Simplified Process for Easier Compliance Test sequence based on the steps in NFPA 70E for verification of an electrically safe work condition Automated test helps reduce operator errors
Reliable Results Fail-safe design with active indications Safety functions meet SIL 3 per IEC 61508-1 Flexible Applications Designed for testing three-phase circuits up to 600V Install on line or load side of electrical disconnect Detects absence of AC and DC voltage
Multiple Environments All VeriSafe ™ Absence of Voltage Testers are tested to NEMA 4X, IP66, IP67 VS-AVT2 parts are rated to Class 1 Division 2, and Class 1 Zone 2 environments

10 ways to hurt yourself on electrical systems

05-28-2013 | Electrical
Updated for you

Perhaps you've been an electrician for a while. Or maybe you're just starting out. No matter how much experience you have, it's always good to spend a few minutes thinking about how to end the day in the same shape as you started it—without any injuries.

The 10 pieces of advice we present here have been updated slightly so the references are to the newest version of NFPA 70E.

Here's a quick list of the 10 ways:

  1. Thinking that it's "only 120 volts" or 208 volts or 480 volts or…
  2. Working on energized systems or equipment when it can be de-energized
  3. Not wearing PPE
  4. Going to sleep during safety training
  5. Using outdated or defective test equipment to troubleshoot
  6. Not wearing the right PPE
  7. Trusting someone else for your safety
  8. Not performing required maintenance of power system equipment
  9. Not carrying your gloves with you
  10. Not working an Energized Electrical Work Permit system

There's always something else that could be included in this list, but 10 gets you thinking. We go through life making small mistake after small mistake and nothing happens, until we happen to get the wrong alignment of small mistakes and we now have an accident. Once the accident starts, we have no control over it, so the best thing to do is to avoid the small mistakes and tighten up the way we work.
