Volt Stick LV50

50v AC Non-contact Voltage Tester, Intrinsically-safe (ATEX)

Volt Stick LV50 applications

This product could save your life!

Approved for use by many of the UK's leading utilities and infrastructure providers, the Volt Stick LV50 is a high sensitivity, intrinsically-safe version of our market-leading Volt Stick non-contact voltage checker.

Companies such as Shell, Network Rail, Cadent and many more have approved the Volt Stick LV50 as the exclusive safety checking device for their field engineers to test metallic surfaces, pipework and cables to be safe from potentially lethal voltages.

The Volt Stick LV50 is sensitive down to just 50v AC allowing for instant - and potentially life-saving - identification of spurious / unexpected live voltages in materials, devices or workspaces.

Used in a wide variety of hazardous and potentially explosive atmospheres - such as gas and petrochemical applications - the LV50 is both ATEX and IECEx approved to be intrinsically-safe.

Approvals: Ex ib IIB T3 Gb, IECEx ExV 16.0018. (Click here to Download Conformity Certificates)
