    Socket & See VIP ESI 2-Pole Voltage Indicator

    The Socket & See VIP ESI 2-Pole Voltage Indicator is specifically designed for smart meters, having been developed and field tested within several of the leading SMART Metering and Utility companies within the UK. The instrument can carry out a clear and unique physical impedance check to indicate a high or low impedance, determining if the item under test has any dead short connections. An operator may use the VIP ESI to verify and troubleshoot circuits or electrical installations with a voltage range between 50 - 400V AC, although for added safety the 2-Poles are capable of withstanding up to 600V.

    When the VIP ESI detects a voltage it displays high or low impedance through an impressive dual bank of colour coded LEDs which operate at a range of 50V, 110V, 230V or 400V. A red LED illuminates to indicate an impedance of less than 100ohms, whilst conversely a green LED shines when the impedance is in excess of 100ohms.

    Nearby live cable creates an induced or ghost voltage which often invalidates results, the VIP ESI features ghost suppression to negate this problem. However where most devices require manual operation to remove these incorrect voltages, over 50V the VIP ESI automatically begins an impedance test with LED indication. Interchangeable straight and right-angled GS38 compliant test prods add further practical applications to the tester.

    The VIP ESI boasts an intuitive secondary base display, complete with its own set of colour coded bright LEDs, to enable operation capability from a safe arms-length distance. No batteries, no buttons, an IP54 and CAT IV 600V rating, this is a supremely safe and extremely user-friendly piece of kit.
