Macron Safety



The MS-USGT-600 self-contained portable grounds tester provides an easy method to test protective grounds in accordance with ASTM standards. The USGT-600 provides a high current output combined with a low voltage output (less than 3 volts AC) for maximum operator safety. Output readings are measured and displayed using a digital meter, and do not require calibration threshold settings.

Unlike other portable ground testers, the MS-USGT-600 comes equipped with REACH isolating system technology to easily isolate any problem grounding components.

The MS-USGT-600 can evaluate cables from as small as #2 through double 4/0 cable. Top or side mounting studs provide maximum user flexibility when testing cable. Safety features also include a thermal overload device to prevent the device from overheating during operation.

Determine the Correct Protection Level, To evaluate Fire Retardant clothing materials in order to measure the heat transferred through the fabric, two values are calculated: Arc Thermal Performance Value (ATPV)...the minimum energy causing the predicted onset of second-degree burns and Heat Attenuation Factor (HAF)...the percentage of total energy of the arc that the fabric prevents from passing through, OSHA requires that each employer must assess the potential hazards in the work environment and determine the appropriate clothing materials using ASTM PS57-97. Always do a hazard assessment. You will need to know electrical system voltage, fault current available, number of phases, Arc time duration, estimated Arc gap, minimum distance from the Arc, and Arc configuration.
