Voltage Absence Testing (V.A.T.),
In the context of work on installations connected to the electrical distribution network, it is recommended
to perform the measurements with the power off (EN 50110-1, NF C 18-510, etc.) to prevent any
electrical hazards.
The genuine absence of any voltage must be checked using a specific instrument which complies with
the IEC 61243-3 standard: a Voltage Detector.
Comfortable use
Specially designed for use with
Individual Protective Equipment (IPE),
the IP2X test probes are fitted with
a spring ensuring a force of 10 N:
this means users can perform quick
tests in all situations.
Redundant safety in the
event of power supply
faults (batteries)
The independent ELV
(Extra-Low Voltage) LED
lights up when the voltage
present exceeds
50 VAC / 120 VDC.
Removable:
The faster the ELV LED
flashes, the higher the
voltage present.
The cables and test probes can be
replaced very easily.

The audible and visual
continuity test is performed
at 100 Ω, in compliance with
Appendix B of the standard.
The C.A 762 offers an
extended continuity test
with visual indications for
R < 2 kΩ, 60 kΩ and 300 kΩ.

Indoor and outdoor use
The IP65 protection rating is higher than recommended,
allowing indoor and outdoor use down to -15 °C (type N).
a clearly-defined procedure
AC and DC voltage testing
The audible and visual AC and DC voltage
detection function is characterized by:
• Use of 2 test probes in contact
• A bargraph made of extra-bright green LEDs
for voltages under 25 V (very low voltage)
and red LEDs for hazardous voltages
• One redundant ELV
• A loud audio signal which can be heard even
in noisy environments
2-wire phase rotation with
microprocessor
Simple and quick, phase
rotation is a useful
function, including for
circuits isolated by an
isolating transformer.
The indication L1-L2-L3
(or L1-L3-L2) is clear and
consensual whatever the
convention chosen
(clockwise or anticlockwise)
for vectorial representation
(Fresnel diagram).
Continuity
When no voltage is
present, you can
quickly perform a
continuity test by
pressing the Ω key.
Single-pole
phase detection
With just one point
connected, it is easy to
detect the position of a
phase simply and quickly.
IP2X accessories
The IP2X accessory
provides extra safety.
In France, the standards
and governmental orders
impose its use.
Adapters for 2P+E safety
sockets
The C.A 751 adapter can be used with
a C.A 742 or C.A 762 VAT to detect
voltages quickly and directly on 2P+E
sockets.
The C.A 753 adapter’s design means
any test probes can be used (Ø 2, Ø 4,
IP2X, etc.). It avoids any risk of nondetection of voltage by guaranteeing
good electrical and mechanical
contact between the probes and the
2P+E socket.
Like the C.A 753, the C.A 751 provides
a visual indication when a mains
voltage (> 200 V) is present and also
shows the phase position.
