Now available from Martindale Electric – pioneers in test equipment – is the latest range of Drummond MTL10 and MTL20 test lamps which provide a visual indication of voltage between 50V and 500V AC/DC and offer the chance to safely detect and identify any faults in a circuit.
Both the MTL10 and MTL20 feature a finger shield and insulated probe tip with only 4mm of exposed metal on both the lamp housing and the probe for added protection whilst a two layer double insulated cable with white inner insulation offers a clear warning of abrasion that might compromise user safety. As an extra precautionary measure, the cable is also heat and oil resistant making it suitable for a variety of applications.
To enable use in most circumstances, a right angles probe tip is supplied in addition to the two straight tips and for maximum ease of use, the right angled probes can be rotated through 90, 180 and 270 degrees.
Four distinctive bands of illumination, with a 360 degree viewing angle, provide indication of voltages above 50, 100, 200 and 400 volts even in bright sunlight, allowing accurate identification of potentially lethal voltages at 50V and enabling the user to distinguish between 110V, 230V and phase to phase voltages in a 3 phase system.
In addition to the MTL10, the MTL20 test lamp also incorporates two test buttons, one on the body of the unit and one on the probe. Simultaneous depression of both switches enables the unit to draw a high current, allowing the user to differentiate between phantom voltages and hazardous persistent voltages.
Featuring exceptional build quality and performance, the robust design of both the MTL10 and MTL20 meets the recommendations set out by the Health and Safety Executive in GS38 as well as complying with BS EN 61243-3 and BS EN 61010, CAT III and CAT IV 600V.
Widely specified by electrical utilities and other safety conscious organisations, the MTL10 and MTL20 both come complete with a 2 year warranty.
