It also addresses several common application scenarios and describes best practices. General Information Before installing the AVT, identify all sources of electrical energy in the equipment. Install the AVT at the point in the circuit where you would normally test for voltage. The AVT will only test for voltage at the point where it is installed. If there are multiple energy sources or multiple test points, consider using multiple AVTs. The AVT may be installed on the supply (line) or load side of an electrical disconnect. When the AVT is installed, mark the test location on the yellow Instruction Label. Apply this label to outside of enclosure near the Indicator Module. The Voltage Presence indicators only illuminate red when hazardous AC voltage is detected. The absence of voltage test will verify absence of any voltage (AC and DC) before the Absence of Voltage Indicator is illuminated green. The AVT is required to be solidly grounded and bonded to the protective conductor terminal of the enclosure. Review the Schematics section of this Instruction Manual. Although the absence of voltage threshold is 3.0 V, residual voltages should be less than 1.3 V to ensure optimal reliability. When installing an AVT, care should be taken to ensure that Sensor Leads used to connect the AVT to the circuit conductors and to ground shall not be any longer than necessary and shall be routed to avoid sharp edges, pinch points or mechanical damage. Do not extend the sensor leads with a splice. Always follow instructions in this Instruction Manual. Do not exceed specified environmental or performance limits. Effect on Short Circuit Current Rating (SCCR) AVTs listed to UL 1436 are required to operate as a secondary circuit that is isolated from the circuit conductors by use of a transformer, optical isolator, or limiting impedance, or other similar means. This is intended to reduce the risks of both electric shock and thermal hazard. These isolation circuits allow very limited current flow, if any, through the AVT. The VeriSafe AVT is suitable for use on circuits delivering up to 300,000 rms symmetrical A at 600 V. Use of Overcurrent Protection Installation of an AVT with overcurrent protection is neither required nor recommended. When testing for the absence of a signal, it is important to ensure that the tester is in direct contact with the circuit test point. Installing overcurrent protection between the AVT and test point could lead to false readings. For example, if a fuse is installed between the circuit test point and the AVT, it is possible that voltage could be on the line and not be detected by the AVT if the fuse is open. The circuits in the VeriSafe AVT Isolation Module that are intended to be in contact with the branch circuit are designed to provide isolation during normal and single-fault conditions. The VeriSafe AVT has been tested to withstand transient overvoltage up to 6kV. The sensor leads of the AVT can be treated as a feeder circuit per NEC article 240.21(B)(1)(b) Exception (NFPA 70:2017). This rule allows a tap of no more than 10 feet on a feeder circuit without the need for overcurrent protection. Termination Recommendations The VeriSafe AVT is provided with a total of (8) 14 AWG (2mm2) sensor leads (two sensor leads for each phase conductor and ground connection point). Sensor leads for each phase and ground must not be mechanically connected to each other for the AVT to function properly (see step 7 in the Installation Instructions). The second lead on each phase provides the ability for the AVT to verify that it is in contact with the circuit conductors (each phase and ground) when the absence of voltage test takes place. It is also part of the mechanism that is used to “test-the- tester” to validate that the AVT is functioning. There is no maximum distance limitation between the two leads on each phase, however there should not be any circuit elements installed between them. Do not extend the sensor leads with a splice. Use approved connection methods and follow local codes and standards when terminating the sensor leads. Terminations should be made via a tap to the circuit conductor using connectors, terminal strips, or power distribution blocks, etc. which are rated for the application. It is generally preferred to use connection methods that do not pierce or otherwise compromise the integrity of the conductor. Connectors that require conductors to be cut or spliced can be used but may limit the SCCR. B21075_00 Page: 11 of 20 04-2018 © Panduit Corp. 2018 INSTRUCTION MANUAL VeriSafe AVT Connectivity Test Each time the absence of voltage test is initiated, the VeriSafe AVT performs a series of diagnostics and checks in addition to testing for absence of voltage. One step in this sequence involves a “connectivity test.” The purpose of the connectivity test is to ensure that each detection lead is in contact with a conductor. The VeriSafe AVT is designed with two Sensor Leads for each phase conductor. The two leads in each color set have different functions. The Detection Lead is used to detect voltage and the Termination Lead is used to verify that the Detection Lead is in contact with a conductor. The Termination Lead does not detect voltage. There are no labels distinguishing the Detection and Termination Leads because it is critical that they are both properly terminated. If the Detection Lead is not contacting a conductor, the connectivity test will fail and prevent the AVT from returning a Green Absence of Voltage indication. The connectivity test is performed by measuring the discharge time of a capacitor inside the Isolation Module that is electrically connected to the detection lead. If the Detection Lead is electrically connected to the Termination Lead, the discharge time will be inside the desired range and the test will pass. If the Detection Lead is not in contact with a conductor, the discharge time will be outside of the desired range and the test will fail. If the connectivity test fails on any Detection Lead, the green absence of voltage indicator on the AVT will not illuminate. IMPORTANT: If the detection lead is not properly terminated to a power conductor and comes in contact with a low impedance path to ground, the discharge time could be inside the desired range and the connectivity test would pass. This would be a multi-fault scenario, but is possible if terminations are not made properly and secured. An AVT installed on a single-phase system might only have one Detection Lead terminated to a power conductor. If the Detection Lead were to become loose and make contact with a low impedance path to ground, the connectivity test would pass. However, voltage would not be detected because the termination lead does not detect voltage and the Detection Lead is no longer in contact with the power conductor. This could result in a green absence of voltage indication, even though the power conductor is energized. This would be less likely to occur with split-phase or three-phase systems as all Detection Lead terminations would need to fail and each detection lead would have to make contact with a low impedance path to ground at the time of the test. However, even the loss of a single detection lead termination on a multi-phase system could result in the scenario described above, if voltage was only present on a single phase. Utilization of the commissioning test described in this Instruction Manual will verify proper functionality of the AVT at the time of installation. The failure modes described in this section would be the result of Sensor Lead terminations not being maintained over time and Sensor Leads not being secured to the power conductors at time of installation. This likelihood of this scenario can be reduced by securing the Sensor Leads to the power conductor or another nearby rigid feature to prevent movement in the event that the termination point failed. Sensor Leads can be secured using cable ties, clamps, mounts or tape. The sensor leads should be secured at multiple locations, including near the termination point. Additionally, the Schematics section of this Instruction Manual provides redundant detection schematics for both single- phase and DC installations to provide a redundant Detection Lead on the power conductor.
