Protecting employees from hazards when handling dangerous electrical voltages
With the VDE certificate, the Testing and Certification Institute of the German Association of Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies (VDE) confirms that both QuantumX modules comply with the applicable standards and thus reduce user hazards to an acceptable level. This is based, among other things, on the IEC 61010 measuring instrument standard and its specifications for test and measurement circuits in measuring instruments as well as the entire measurement chain—from transducers to measurement electronics. QuantumX MX403B and MX809B meet these requirements with an integrated insulation concept: double insulated and rugged measuring leads, safe measuring leads, contact-protected connectors, and IEC61010-compliant design of the devices while maintaining the necessary minimum distances, insulations, and necessary tests.
But of course, this does not eliminate all the dangers. All persons handling dangerous electrical potential must be appropriately trained e.g., qualified electricians for HV systems in motor vehicles. Within the framework of these courses, the necessary handling and measures related to safety are learned and practiced together with experts on an electric vehicle. This makes it possible to select and handle safe electrical equipment. For example, if employees injure themselves while working with unsafe measuring devices, the company and the responsible manager can be held personally liable. With proven safety standards, companies can more easily fulfill and document their duty of care in the field of occupational safety.
