VDE Screwdriver

What is VDE screwdriver?

In electrical works, sometimes we have to do the work in the live circuit.So to ensure we are safe from electrical shock, equipment used must be appropriate to work in a live circuit.

I`m using a VDE SoftFinish®electric Screwdriver From WIHA.This is my favorite tool because it the high quality blade insulation is molded directly onto the blade and therefore guarantees safety when working on live equipment up to 1500 V DC or 1000 V AC.

To maintain this safety, each screwdriver of the SoftFinish®electric series is individually tested in a water bath at 10,000 Volts according to IEC 60900:2004.

The roll-off protection and the special handle geometry offer optimum handling and electrical safety, even in critical applications. Furthermore, the exclusive SoftFinish® handle shape allows maximum user comfort.

  1. Can I simply say what a reduction to search out someone who really knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know methods to carry a difficulty to light and make it important. Extra individuals must learn this and perceive this side of the story. I cant imagine youre not more standard because you definitely have the gift.

  2. The tools you mentioned here are the most important, wich must be present in any property! Thank you for this review as Screwdriver.
