Test lamp suitable for higher voltage applications

29 August 2018

Now available from Martindale Electric is the new Drummond MTL15 Test Lamp, designed to extend safe isolation procedures into higher voltage applications.

Building on the success of the company's MTL10, the Drummond MTL15 Test Lamp has a 1000V CAT IV safety rating and LED indication for AC/DC voltages ranging from 50 to 690V, ensuring compliance with health and safety requirements for safe working in all BS EN61010 installation categories. 

The MTL15 is suited to higher voltage applications with four distinctive bands of LED illumination which provide safe and clear indication for voltages at 50, 230, 400 and 690V thresholds. The Drummond design with high intensity LEDs provides 360 degree visibility of hazardous voltage levels even in bright sunlight. This ensures accurate identification of potentially lethal supply voltages above 50V and enables the user to easily distinguish source voltages of different supply types.

The Drummond MTL15 Test Lamp is fully compliant with the latest edition of GS38. Safety features include a finger shield to minimise the risk of accidental contact with a live conductor and insulated probe tips, with only 4mm of exposed metal. A two layer double insulated cable with white inner insulation gives a clear warning of abrasion and is resistant to heat and oil damage. The latest addition to the MTL range does not require batteries and has no ranges or switches, preventing misleading results and ensuring reliable indication of hazardous voltages every time.

Supplied with six interchangeable test probes, the MTL15 is appropriate for safe and easy measurement where access is limited. Suitable for use in many high power applications including wind turbine installations, energy intensive process industries, high power variable speed drives and UPS systems, the Drummond MTL15 Test Lamp is suitable for proving dead and ensuring compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations for implementing safe working practises.

Available to purchase separately or as part of a kit, the MTL15PD, includes a matching proving unit and a combination carry case for safe and reliable proving of the test lamp before and after use as required by the Electricity at Work regulations.
