Ever felt a little tingle on stage when you touch something metal? Check your earth!
Save Lives! - Protect yourself and your audience from an electric shock. Increasingly non-qualified electricians and willing caretakers or jobbing hands are fitting extra sockets in venues without testing them!
Plug this in when you get to a venue before you set up. Over 2000 serious accidents a year are caused by faults in electricity supplies.
This detects 28 socket wiring fault conditions and checks mains voltage levels and verifies the earth wiring by carrying out a non-trip earth loop test and indicating its value in 6 discrete ranges from less than 1.7Ω to 500Ω.
Low earth resistance is essential for safety disconnection devices to work properly and prevent electrocution when faults occur. In contrast, basic socket testers only indicate the presence of earth and will do so even when resistance values are dangerously high.
Socket polarity and earth wiring faults are identified by a combination of red LEDs. The 3 LEDs correspond to neutral, earth and live connections to aid fast identification of the source of common faults. A chart on the tester provides further fault diagnosis.
The EZ165 is an Advanced Socket Tester as defined by the Health & Safety Executive as it indicates earth loop impedance. Advanced Socket Testers offer a simple solution to verifying socket earthing and are commonly used by engineers and technicians prior to servicing and installing mains powered electrical and gas appliances.
- Quick & easy mains socket polarity and earth testing
- Red/Green LEDs show 28 fault conditions
- Non-trip earth loop impedance test
- Tough sculpted design for easy removal
Touring means numerous different venues. Fixed installations get modified or new apparatus is installed so even familiar venues may have been changed since your last appearance.
