Christmas has come early at Grace this year! We're excited to announce the NEW ChekVolt® that allows users to test for absence of voltage and provides voltage presence LED indication; all without opening enclosure doors. The ChekVolt is a Permanent Electrical Safety Device (PESD) that allows absence of voltage testing to be performed safely by qualified electricians using their trusted voltmeters. Get your hands on one today by requesting a FREE sample!
Performing Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) safely requires the answer to one question; is there voltage? NFPA 70E/CSAZ462 requires an absence of voltage test to verify an electrically safe work condition. The traditional process poses arc flash and shock hazards to comply with NFPA 70E Article 120.5: Process for Establishing and Verifying an Electrically Safe Work.
PESD users report LOTO procedure time reductions of 35-40 minutes. ChekVolt pays for itself after 6-8 LOTO procedures from time savings alone. View Product Bulletin.
By inserting insulated meter probes with .080” tips into any two test point jacks, you can take a voltage reading with your properly rated test equipment. With the addition of a ChekVolt within any electrical safety program, by following the proper safety procedures outlined in NFPA 70E, the user’s risk of arc flash or shock hazard is significantly reduced. Additionally, this PESD has also made compliance easier by reducing the margin of human error that results in LOTO being one of OSHA’s most cited violations each year.
This touch-safe, compact PESD features voltmeter-compatible test points and redundant LED voltage presence indication rated up to 1000 VAC/VDC. The ChekVolt is quickly installed through a single 30mm knockout and includes four lead wires potted in the construction–making LOTO in even the harshest environments safer, smarter, and more productive.
Meet the Standard with No Exception
- NFPA 70E 120.5(4) – ChekVolt voltage indication LEDs illuminate when hazardous voltage is present until stored electrical energy is released, warning of hazardous voltage that may harm maintenance personnel believing equipment to be in a depowered state.
- NFPA 70E 120.5(7) – ChekVolt high impedance protected test points allow a qualified electrician to safely test phase-to-phase and phase-to-ground for absence of voltage using an adequately rated portable test instrument (i.e. voltmeter). Per 120.5 (7): “Before and after each test, determine that the test instrument is operating satisfactorily through verification on any known voltage source.”
