Original Press Release:
Universal Power Alert: UPA-100
Lancaster, PA .ATC's Diversified Electronics Division introduces their new Universal Power Alert (UPA-100). With the UPA-100, detection and indication of the presence of AC and DC (stored energy) voltage is made possible.
Every year many fatalities occur due to the disregard of safety practices or in assuming power was OFF, while replacing or servicing electrical equipment. Eliminate the guesswork out of determining the presence of power in panels. Compliance to OSHA requirements regarding "Verification of Isolation" (ref: OSHA 1910.147 (d)(6) can effectively be accomplished using the UPA-100.
Features include: verification of zero energy; detection of single or 3-phase AC voltage (40 to 750VAC); detection of DC or Stored Energy (30 to 1000VDC); redundant circuitry. The UPA-100 is UL pending.
The epoxy encapsulated NEMA 4 enclosure features flashing LEDs to advise the observer if voltage is present without the aid of additional equipment. No company can afford to be without this potentially life saving new product.
