Panduit: Improved VeriSafe Absence of Voltage Tester

Brand: panduit
Industry Focus: Automotive, Data, Industrial, Power Distribution & Energy
Product Type: test and measurement

The new VeriSafe 2.0 Absence of Voltage Tester (AVT) leverages the same test in the existing Verisafe AVT, but with many new features and expanded applications. With the push of a button, workers can quickly determine voltage status and see an active indication when the absence of voltage is confirmed. The automated test minimizes risk by verifying the absence of voltage before equipment is accessed, making it easier for workers to verify an electrically safe work condition.

How GFCIs Empower Panel Builders to Protect Against Electrical Shock and Save Lives

Brand: Littelfuse
Industry Focus: Data, General Manufacturing, Healthcare, Industrial, Power Distribution & Energy
Product Type: Circuit Protection

With power, comes great responsibility. A panel builder who can effectively integrate ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) into a system can make the difference between life and death. Ground-fault circuit protection is one of the most effective preventative measures against electrical shock because it actively reacts to irregular electrical conditions, regardless of a worker’s qualifications or use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
