Panduit Europe Ltd., an industry leader in control panel, wire harness and heavy-duty cable management solutions for over 60 years, is announcing the release of its groundbreaking VeriSafe™ – Absence of Voltage Tester. VeriSafe™ is designed to minimize risk to electrical hazards by verifying the absence of voltage before equipment is accessed, making it easier for qualified electrical workers to determine an electrically safe environment in a fraction of the time compared to hand-held portable test instruments.
Prior to performing de-energized work on electrical equipment, NFPA 70E (North American Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace) requires that workers verify equipment is in an electrically safe state. One of the steps in the process of verifying that equipment is an electrically safe state involves a test for absence of voltage. VeriSafe™ ensures the entire process of verifying absence of voltage is performed in the proper sequence – every time, every test.
The fail-safe and reliable process performed by VeriSafe™ tests the tester itself, verifies installation, checks for voltage, verifies installation and retests the tester; all automatically performed in sequence with no risk of exposure to electrical hazards at the push of a button.
“We understand that our customers are committed to protecting their workers while meeting safety regulations,” says Bob Krisel, VP, OEM, Panduit, “This new tool allows them to effectively meet their objectives. This highly anticipated new product offering has the capability to transform the way our customers in the manufacturing industries conduct verification testing for industrial enclosures.”
VeriSafe™ carries the CE approval, IEC approval for measurement, control and laboratory use (IEC 61010-1 & IEC 61326), as well as a SIL 3 rating (IEC 61508)
