NHS approval for Martindale voltage tester

VI13800, Martindale

Martindale’s VI13800 voltage tester has been approved by the NHS as a standard tester for its estates and facilities division, according to ‘Health technical memorandum 06-02: electrical safety guidance for low-voltage systems’. The memorandum states that all work on low-voltage electrical equipment, including conductors, should be carried out while such electrical equipment and conductors are dead and isolated from all sources of supply — and after being proved dead at the point of work.

The VI13800 can be used to indicate a voltage range from 50 to 400 V. It automatically detects AC/DC and responds to voltage presence within 100 ms.
