Live Operation Equipment

Live insulating equipment is intended to prevent direct or indirect contact of installations elements, live electrical equipment or that becomes live accidentally.This equipment can be classified in two categories:
  • electrically insulating equipment mounted temporarily in electrical installations to insulate live electrical installation / equipment elements or for the protection of workers;
  • electrically insulated and insulating tools and devices used for works on live electrical installations.

  • Contact with the live component may be either directly with a part of the human body, or indirectly by means of a mobile item which is electrically conductive.
    In order to prevent such situations generating electrocution (electric shock) accidents, a series of equipment can be used which is designed and manufactured in order to eliminate or decrease the risk of contact with live items.
