Grace Safe-Test Point
Grace Safe-Test Point Permanent Electrical Safety Device

 

Indicating the presence and absence of voltage, the Safe-Test PointTM from Grace Engineered Products allows workers to a safer way to perform Absence of Voltage Test (AVT) from outside the electrical cabinet. By following proper safety procedures, the risks of arc flash or shock hazard is reduced. The Safe-Test Point provides a safer and more productive method of performing lockout/tagout (LOTO), while exceeding NFPA 70E and meeting OHSA energy isolation principle.

The voltage values will read with a percentage of error that varies depending on the ratings and series of the multimeter. For example, when measuring voltage on 480VAC system Phase L1 to Phase L2, the 10MΩ multimeter voltage value will have a -2% reduction reading approximately 470V.

The Safe-Test Point contains four test point jacks that are hardwired directly to energy sources and allows measurement of both AC and DC voltages by inserting the insulated meter probes into any two test point jacks to take a voltage reading.

A Safe-Test Point can be mounted on the side of an enclosure, door, or flange. By inserting insulated meter probes with .080” tips into any two test point jacks, you can take a voltage reading with properly rated test equipment.

 

  • Allows workers to perform Absence of Voltage Tests from outside an electrical cabine
  • Reduce risks of an arc flash or shock hazard 
  • Provides four test point jacks to allow measurement of AC/DC voltages either phase to phase or phase to ground
  • Can be mounted on the side of the enclosure, door or flange
  • Comes complete with a tool-entry dust cap and label

PBUS-26-Parker-Compax3ServoDrive-400.jpg

The Compax3 Servo drive is far from a new product. Developed by the Electromechanical and Drives Division Europe, Parker's global servo drive platform is widely used in industrial manufacturing to control motorized processes in automated assembly, including robotics and the machining of parts. Parker’s customers are well-acquainted with the benefits of the drives used in packaging, the production of sheet goods and the operation of printing presses, as well as automated testing equipment for both automotive and consumer goods.

Recently however, the Compax3 has found new purpose in healthcare and life sciences markets where precise and safe movement is paramount. The drive’s flexibility, accuracy and comprehensive list of safety features has led to its adoption in positioning tables, exercise equipment and therapy devices.

A Chinese medical equipment manufacturer has designed an effective, efficient rehabilitation device with intelligent feedback that relies on Parker parts for safe, stable and reliable motion control.

For some people with physical disabilities, appropriate exercise training with rehabilitation equipment can prevent muscle atrophy and improve muscular strength and dexterity in upper and lower limbs. Different patients require varying levels of intensity and training modes.

PBUS-26-UL-EnclosureAccessories-400.jpg

In the past, enclosure accessories were limited to being Recognized Components which might have required the end user to initiate additional evaluation in order to allow the use of these products. The new certification for environmental-rated accessories for enclosures utilizes the UL Listing Mark, so enclosure accessories can be installed without further evaluation.

New Listing Certification for US and Canada (FTTA/FTTA7)

This new Listing certification for enclosure accessories assists manufacturers who utilize Type or IP rated enclosures (for example, Types 3R and 4X or IP55 and IP66) in being able to use Type or IP rated enclosure accessories such as window kits, hole plugs, filter fan kits, etc. The benefits of this new Listing certification are two-fold: it is more cost efficient for manufacturers and it can also accelerate market access for end users.

Types of Listed Products

  • • Bolts • Breather Vents • Drain Vents
  • • External Mounting Means • Filter Fan Kits • Gasketed Screws
  • • Gland Plates • Hole Seals • Overlays
  • • Rain Shrouds • Sealing Washers • Ventilation Kits
  • • Window Kits
