The DP5 Discharge Probe is a crucial tool engineered for the safe discharge of high voltage cables post-testing. Crafted with precision, it ensures operational safety with reliability and efficiency. Featuring an insulated handle, it offers enhanced safety during operation, providing a secure grip and minimizing the risk of electrical shock.

Designed for efficiency, the copper spike enables effective discharge, releasing residual energy safely. Integrated surge resistors regulate the discharge process, enhancing safety and preventing potential equipment damage.

With clear silicone insulation, the earth lead facilitates easy conductor inspection and optimal performance. Terminating with a crocodile clip, it ensures secure attachment and reliable connection to earth points. The lead length can be customized, with standard options including 2m and 5m.

Ideal for various testing environments, the DP5 finds application in electrical testing laboratories, power distribution centers, and industrial settings. However, it’s crucial to never connect this probe to energized AC distribution systems. Always adhere to safety protocols and guidelines, providing proper training and supervision for personnel handling high voltage equipment.

Our partners, such as AcutestAlpha ElectronicsCuthbertson LairdNorwich Instrument Services, and PASS Ltd offer the DP5 Discharge Probe in the United Kingdom. Additionally, if you are located outside Great Britain, you can conveniently order the product through our worldwide distribution network.
