SAGAB Volt Stick LV50 Non-contact Voltage Tester ATEX Approved


This product could save your life!

Approved for use by many of the UK's leading utilities and infrastructure providers, the Volt Stick LV50 is a high sensitivity, intrinsically-safe version of our market-leading Volt Stick non-contact voltage checker.

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. (Click here to Download Conformity Certificates)


What is ATEX Approval?

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.

About Volt Stick

Over 30 years ago Volt Stick invented the original Volt Stick tester, the worlds first non-contact voltage tester, to quickly and easily check your work space for the presence of AC voltages.
Just the size of a pen, Volt Sticks provide a convenient safety tool which can instantly detect the presence of an AC voltage without the need to make physical contact with any potential conducting surfaces or materials.
