Testing & measuring - better safe than sorry!

Multi-Contact provides information on the most important guidelines for safe testing and measuring.

(PresseBox) (Allschwil, ) Measuring electrical devices under load with hand-held test probes always bears a risk. Particularly in measurements on high-power circuits – e.g. the line entry of an electrical installation – safety precautions are essential, as short-circuits may have fatal consequences. ­Next to specific testing equipment high breaking capacity fuses should be employed, which are able to shut down very high short-circuit currents. Looking back on many years of experience in providing electrical test & measurement accessories for the measurement categories CAT I to CAT IV, Multi-Contact is well aware of the risks attached. The safety aspect has therefore always played a great role in our product range. However, the existing directives and their application in day-to-day practice often raise questions.
A new, pocket-sized infomation broshure by Multi-Contact gives answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding official safety guidelines and the safe use of MC test and measure accessories. The guide is currently available in German only; versions in English and French will be published shortly.
