Testing high power distribution systems and panels can be safely carried out with the help of the latest test leads from Multi-Contact. The new leads are rated for use at voltages up to 1000 V CATIV.

Incorporating an integrated high capacity fuse holder, these high flexibility leads accept 6.3 x 32 mm UK style fuses, which can be easily fitted by unscrewing the two part connector.

The UL approved leads are terminated with 4 mm diameter plugs, for connecting standard safety test clips and probes to enable safe, fuse protected measurements.

Available with PVC or silicone insulation, the leads are fitted with Multi-Contact Multilam(R) plugs with rigid insulating sleeves.

Two HRC type fuses can be supplied, rated at 0.5 A or 1.6 A, both with a breaking capacity of 50 kA.

The leads are designed for 1000 V CATIV operation in accordance with IEC / EN 61010-031, which allows safe use in appropriate environments provided suitable high capacity fuses, probes / clips and test instruments are used.
