50v AC Non-contact Voltage Tester, Intrinsically-safe (ATEX)
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.
ATEX is the formal name given to the two European Directives for controlling explosive atmospheres. We take an in-depth look at ATEX Approval and its requirements for equipment in hazardous areas.

As the only fully ATEX and IECEx-approved device of its kind, the unique Volt Stick LV50 is specified for use by engineers in many of the UK's leading utilities and services providers including Network Rail, National Grid and Cadent.
