Panduit: Improved VeriSafe Absence of Voltage Tester
November 15, 2022
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. This provides a new and innovative way to test for the absence of voltage safely, reliably, and efficiently without exposure to electrical hazards.
The VeriSafe 2.0 AVT also satisfies criteria in NFPA 70E 120.5(7) Exception1 and CSA Z462 4.2.5 (g) Exception 2. Like its predecessor, it is also a UL 1436 listed AVT. VeriSafe 2.0 AVT is a fail-safe design with active indications, redundant channels for measurement and detection, and delivers safety functions including SIL 3 (IEC 61508-1).
The VeriSafe 2.0 AVT is rated for environments up to 1000 VAC and 1000 VDC. The AVT test can either be powered by use of a battery or auxiliary power source. Additionally features include a dedicated DC/single-phase faceplate, battery free indicator module, dual indicator functionality, voltage presence contacts, and networking.
VeriSafe 2.0 is more than an absence of voltage tester, utilizing solid-state signal outputs for both voltage presence and absence of voltage indications; and real-time diagnostics and performance reporting with the VeriSafe 2.0 Network Module.
VeriSafe AVTs can be used in many environments including:
- – Power distribution, motor control, and automation
- – Data centers, industrial, and commercial facilities
- – Indoor or outdoor use
