SafeSide™ Voltage Indicators
Electrical safety demands that we know the answer to one question: Is there voltage? A wrong answer can have severe consequences. The SafeSide™ voltage indicators are a reliable tool that helps answer that question. Typically hardwired to the load side of the disconnect or circuit breaker, the SafeSide™ voltage indicators illuminate whenever hazardous voltage is present in any individual phase .
After disconnecting power to an enclosure, electricians can pre-verify voltage isolation while the enclosure door is safely closed. The risk of arc flash is reduced because electricians know if there is power inside the enclosure before re-verifying isolation with a meter.
The SafeSide™ voltage indicator is unmatched in its reliability due to its dual redundant circuitry and no separate power supply.
SafeSide™ voltage indicators get their power from the same voltage that they indicate! Ask this question: Can you live without it?

A message from Phil Allen about Short Circuit Current Ratings on the VoltageVision:
"A Short Circuit Current Rating (SSCR) on a device tells the user how much instantaneous current it can pass without permanent damage. A SSCR has nothing to do with the failure mode of the device, but rather its response to high amounts of current during a short circuit event somewhere in the system. Unless a device switches or conducts higher currents under normal operation, it would be largely unaffected by a short circuit (except for collateral damage from heat or surges)
The SafeSide™ R-3W is a unique device because it is wired between all three phases and is effectively ?short circuiting? all the phases. Under normal circumstances this device allows only 100-200 micro Amps to pass between each phase and ground. If a short circuit occurs in a system where a SafeSide™ R-3W is installed, the high currents that pass through the system would not find a path through the SafeSide™ R-3W and would not cause any damage to the device. Therefore the SSCR rating is not applicable for the SafeSide™ R-3W."
