Volt Stick LV12

12v AC Non-contact Voltage Tester, Intrinsically-safe (ATEX)

Volt Stick LV50 applications

This product could save your life!

The new Volt Stick LV12 is a high sensitivity, intrinsically-safe version of our market-leading Volt Stick non-contact voltage checker.

The Volt Stick LV12 has been developed as a safety checking device for gas field engineers to test metallic surfaces, pipework and cables to be safe from potentially lethal voltages.

The Volt Stick LV12 is sensitive down to just 12v 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 LV12 is both ATEX and IECEx approved to be intrinsically-safe.

Approvals: Ex ib IIB T3 Gb, IECEx ExV 16.0018.
