Absence of Voltage Tester

 

1701mtprod13pVeriSafe absence of voltage tester is said to simplify the voltage verification process through automation. Once installed, a push button allows users to see an active visual indication when the absence of voltage is confirmed. The product reportedly lowers exposure risk to electrical hazards for improved worker safety, simplifies the process for easier NFPA 70E compliance, and reduces testing procedure time and complexity.
