    Martindale Voltage and Proving Kit - VIPD 137

    **BS EN61243-3 prohibits the use of fuses in 2 pole voltage indicators. The replacement VIPD 138 is still GS38 compliant however it is installed with a high wattage resistor that will limit the current in the event of damage to the cable, rather than a fuse. This protection is superior to the protection offered by a fuse as the current that can flow under fault conditions is considerably less.

    This Martindale VIPD Safety Kit includes both the Martindale VI13700/2 contact voltage indicator and the Martindale PD440 Proving Unit + TC57 Carry Case and it meets the Health and Safety GS38 safety recommendation.

    The VI13700/2 safely checks for AC and DC voltages from 50V to 400V AC and DC as required by the Electricity Council. The long life, bright neon indicators give a clear and fast display of the voltage level range. This voltage indicator has been designed with electrical safety in mind, finger guards to prevent slipping onto live electrical circuits, double insulated test leads, the return lead incorporates an HSC fuse, together with retractable prods that the unit fully meets all the GS38, M15/4, HSE, IEC1010 and IEC61243 recommendations.

    Martindale’s PD440 is a portable, battery powered proving unit for the testing of contact type voltage detectors up to 440V @ 500kΩ load or higher. This unit is suitable for indicators with 230V and 415/440V AC or DC detection ranges, such as the Martindale VI13700/2. The PD440 can also check Drummond and other filament lamps due to its output being sufficient to illuminate the bulb.

    Because voltage indicators should always be tested with a proving unit or a known live source before and after use the Martindale PD440 Proving Device which is part of this kit helps meet that requirement.

    It comes supplied with 2 years manufacturers warranty.

    All voltage detectors should be tested before and after use with a proving unit to confirm the long term reliability of results given whilst testing live circuits.

    Excellent and essential piece of safe isolation equipment. Solid piece of kit and hasnt let me down. Comes with a carry case that has a shoulder strap. Plus the proving unit can be kept in the carry case as it has 2 holes for the probes to be inserted. (Picture didnt show this at the time of review). Overall a very reliable and robust, they can take knock after knock and still come out virtually undamaged. Testiment to Martindale!

    I've being using one of these for years! Unfortunately some robbing B*****D nicked it out my van, I thought it was only fair to leave a review telling everyone how good it is. If you haven't got one or are thinking of getting one. Do it! It's the only voltage detector I love & trust!

    I bought this kit some time ago and have made good use of it. It has proved to be very reliable and has taken quite a beating in my tool bag. I'd highly recommend it.
