Electrical Hazards Diminish with Voltage Tester

July 18, 2017
Panduit Corp. removes the risk of electrical hazards with their absence of voltage tester.

VeriSafe, an Absence of Voltage Tester, is designed to minimize risk to electrical hazards by verifying the absence of voltage before equipment is accessed, making it easier for qualified electrical workers to determine an electrically safe environment in a fraction of the time compared to hand-held portable test instruments.


Prior to performing de-energized work on electrical equipment, NFPA 70E requires that workers verify equipment is in an electrically safe state. One of the steps in the process of verifying that equipment is an electrically safe state involves a test for absence of voltage. VeriSafe ensures the entire process of verifying absence of voltage is performed in the proper sequence – every time, every test.


The fail-safe and reliable process performed by VeriSafe tests the tester itself, verifies installation, checks for voltage, verifies installation and retests the tester; all automatically performed in sequence with no risk of exposure to electrical hazards at the push of a button.

  • initiate test with the push of a button
  • no additional tools required
  • provides visual alert to abnormal power conditions
  • determine voltage status before equipment is accessed
  • prevents direct exposure to electrical hazards by personnel servicing equipment
  • fail-safe design with active indications
  • safety functions meet SIL 3 per IEC 61508-1
  • designed for testing three-phase circuits up to 600V
  • install on line or load side of electrical disconnect
  • detects presence of AC and DC voltage
  • automated test sequence based on the steps in NFPA 70E for verification of an electrically safe work condition
  • automated test helps reduces operator errors
