Now available from Martindale Electric – one of the most trusted brands in electrical safety – is the latest NC Series of Non-Contact Testers, which enable electricians and maintenance teams to quickly and safely identify live wiring and detect magnetic fields in a range of applications. All models feature a bright LED torch at the point of measurement, together with both audible and visual indication making them ideal for all types of work area including locations that are poorly lit and have limited line of sight. The extended clear probe tip makes it easier to identify the source of the live voltage or magnetic field through improved access and brighter indication.
Both NC2 Non-contact Voltage Detector and NC4 Dual Sensitivity Non-contact Voltage Detector make it simple to detect the presence of AC voltages in cabling, sockets and connectors. The sensitivity of the NC2 has been optimised for 230V single and 3 phase systems making it ideal for identifying and tracing live mains cables in trunking and connectors. The NC4 features two sensitivity ranges which can be set according to the application and is suitable for both mains and lower voltage systems down to 12V.
The Non-contact Magnetic Field Detection capabilities of the NC1 Non-contact Solenoid/Magnetic Field Tester and NC3 Non-contact Voltage and Magnetic Field Tester can be used for checking the operation of relays and solenoid valves in a wide range of machinery. This feature saves valuable time by allowing testing without having to dismantle equipment or control panels. For the dual function NC3 a bright red LED indicates voltage and a yellow LED magnetic fields. Suitable applications for both the NC1 and NC3 include trouble shooting and servicing of control equipment in process industries, energy, transportation and pneumatic and hydraulic systems.
The pen-shaped design with clip is ideal for carrying in a pocket or tool belt so that the tester is always to hand for electricians or maintenance staff working at height or in difficult to access locations.
Available online and through electrical wholesalers all models in the new NC series are supplied with alkaline batteries and a comprehensive two-year guarantee. Non-contact voltage testers are a handy tool for detecting live voltages and troubleshooting faulty wiring and equipment but cannot be used for proving dead during safe isolation procedures. A two pole voltage indicator such as the Martindale VI13800 should be used for proving dead.
Martindale Electric offers a comprehensive range of portable appliance testers, voltage testers, proving units and locking off devices to ensure compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations for the safe maintenance of plant and equipment and the safe operation of electrical appliances.
