Megger’s technical team answers another joint product query related to the contractor. You Ask: I am looking for a simple test tool to help me identify live cables and find cable breaks. What do you suggest? MEGGER says: Offline voltage indicators are very useful devices that, in most applications, will do exactly what you want. Some of them also offer valuable additional features. The new Megger VF5 AC non-contact voltage detector, for example, has both low voltage (12-1000V) and medium voltage (100-1000V) detection ranges. Additionally, it has a built-in bright white LED and an extra LED torch at the end of the detector. When the VF5 detects the AC voltage, the LED tip changes color, the audible probe works and the detector vibrates completely, which is very useful if you are working in a noisy environment. In addition to detecting AC voltage – for example, in socket outlets, switches, circuit breakers, fuses, and lamps – the VF5 can easily identify cable breaks. When working on any live system, safety is key, and the Megger VF5 has the market-leading CAT IV rating. It also has an IP67 waterproof rating. Another alternative is the Megger VF6 EX. This has the same features as the VF5 but is ATEX certified so you can use it in hazardous areas like front garage yards, petrochemical plants, and gas platforms.
