    Proving a point - for real

    Today I went to fix a minor loose screw on something and after switching off, etc, got out my Martindale VT12 continuity & voltage tester and proving unit - and my tester failed. Yes, one LED lit, but no sound nor any of the voltage indicator LEDs functioning. So bin for that tester now...

    Contactor. Proving dead . 3 phase .

    When working in a control panel. If I needed to replace a 3 phase contactor do I need to carry out a 10point check to prove dead on just the mains isolator. Or do I need to 10point check the mains isolator and then another 10point check on the contactor before removing. Many thanks

    Proving units maximum voltage

    I decided,having lived with using a live circuit, to buy a proving unit. I opted for a Kewtech Prove 4 which covers 5 voltages between 690volts and 50 volts.

    Recommendations for a Voltage Indicator and Proving Unit

    I’m looking to save for a Safe Isolation Kit, we done the Safe Isolation procedure in College using a Martindale Kit. But would anyone have any recommendations for a kit to buy? The Martindale was good but I’ve seen a few other manufacturers that seem to offer more features but are they worth it?
