Verifying the Absence of Voltage Before Servicing Electrical Equipment

Panduit voltage tester

When dealing with electrical equipment, there are certain safety precautions with which workers must comply. One of these is performing a voltage verification test to ensure no voltage is present before equipment is serviced.

Absence of voltage tests (AVT) are necessary for the safety of workers, but they can be time-consuming.  Once installed, Panduit’s VeriSafe Absence of Voltage Tester simplifies and automates this process.

In the United States, there have been 24,000 electrical injuries in the workplace between 2003-2012. The leading cause of electrical injury is not turning off power and verifying that equipment has been deengerized.1

The VeriSafe Absense of Voltage Tester Automates the Voltage Verification Process

Panduit’s VeriSafe Absence of Voltage Tester is a popular option for voltage checking. Since it is mounted, it removes the steps of setting up a portable AVT, and keeps the worker isolated from voltage until its absence has been verified.

The VeriSafe Absence of Voltage Tester flashes yellow while the test is in process, and illuminates green when absence of voltage is verified, or red when hazardous voltage is detected.  Read Panduit’s white paper for more information.
