Tool tests

Tests according to EN 60900: 2012 / IEC 60900: 2012

All Tools are tested piece-by-piece with a test Voltage 10.000 Volt and certificated highest possible Safeness for working on live parts up to 1.000 Volt. 2-coloured-multilayer insulation with talatfree PVC “Made in Germany” according to the latest Norm EN 60900:2012 / IEC 60900:2012.

All Safety Tools are stamped and signed according the Standard IEC / EN 60900: 2012 or additional with VDE / GS also with:

  • Item Number, Size
  • Manufacturing Year and Manufacturer
  • 1000V and Double Triangle respectively VDE-Sign.

Dielectric strenght test

Dielectric strenght test

The dipped insulated tools are individually tested. The marking double triangle means that the tools with AC 10,000 V were approved and therefore allowed are to work up to 1,000 V. This 10-fold safety is ensured.

Coldhit test

Coldhit test

The toughness of the PVC material is checked by dropping a weight on the Tools cooled down with -25°C. Under this condition the insulation must still absorb hits and impacts withaut breaking or splintering.

Resistance of the insulation

Test of the resistance of the insulation

After 24 hours of underwater storage the tools are - at simultaneous checking of leakage - tested with AC 10,000 V for three minutes. During this time, neither a breakdown nor flashover shall occur.

Pressure test

Pressure test

Under a pressure load of 20 Nm and a temperature of 70° C no disruptive discharge is allowed, when tools tested with a voltage of AC 5,000 V.

Adhesive power

Test of adhesive power

After Storage Pliers for 168 hours and with 70 ° C the adhesion of the PVC coating is tested with a tensile force of 500 Nm. The insulating material must remain firmly connected to the basic tool.

Flame test resistance

Flame test resistance

The used insulation material is of a flame resistant plastic, which excludes any risk of fire.
