Martindale sets the standard for safe voltage testing

Martindale Electric has a wide range of voltage testers which combine enhanced safety and functionality with ease of use. Voltage testers are used to detect live electricity, and can be an important piece of safety kit for electricians or any trades who need to work with or around electricity.

Models in the Martindale range come with useful features. For example, the Martindale VT12 Two Pole Voltage and Continuity Tester features an LED voltage indicator, measures 12V to 690V and provides a continuity test. It also includes probe caps for GS38 compliance.

Other models in the range are crammed with more advanced features which are just as easy to use. The VT25 and VT28 pole testers, for example, auto detect and measure AC/DC voltages from 12V to 690V and include continuity testing with audible and visual indication, plus phase rotation measurement capability.

Both the VT25 and VT28 use LED indicators for voltage steps and have a white light torch function, making it easy to work in low light environments. The VT28 also includes a high contrast LCD display for digital readings.

The testers’ design meets the latest requirements of BS EN61243-3, is supplied with removable probe caps for GS38 compliance and is rated at CAT IV 600V, CAT III 690V for enhanced safety. In addition, the cable is double insulated with a black outer and contrasting inner core to give a visual warning of any potential damage. A IP64 rating provides added protection and reliability.

Ergonomically designed and of durable construction, the new testers can be operated easily when wearing safety gloves and are suitable for residential, commercial and industrial applications.

The VT12, VT25 and VT28 testers are also available in kits, which include Martindale proving units and combination carry cases. All Martindale Electric voltage testing equipment is fully compliant with international standards and manufactured in compliance with IEC61243.
