Martindale Electric has been chosen to supply Baxi Heating with testers for checking appliance wiring and earthing.
Baxi Heating decided on Martindale due to the latest Gas Safe Register guidance – TB118 2018 – and to ensure best practice for electrical safety.
After researching the market, Baxi Heating has provided 250 of its trainers and engineers with a range of Martindale Electric equipment, which includes the EZ650 earth loop and polarity checker for socket and spur testing.
The EZ650 simplifies the process for identifying a satisfactory earth by combining a basic socket tester with an earth loop check that uses clear red/green LEDs.
This makes it easy to interpret the results and see whether the earth loop value is within acceptable limits.
The EZ650 socket and loop tester can be used on both 13A sockets and fused spurs to quickly identify a hazardous earth before starting work.
This approach offers a simple solution to compliance and electrical safety for engineers and technicians working on and installing earthed appliances.
Engineers have also been supplied with a range of equipment to securely lock off circuits, such as the LOKFS1 universal fused spur locking off device.
This offers a simple solution for safely isolating fixed wired appliances including cookers, boilers, hand dryers and water heaters.
There Is also the slim-line LOK7, which is suitable for locking off MCBs, where there is restricted access.
