article image A new concept in managing electrical hazards at work or at home.

NOT yet commercially available, innovative Protex switching technology will be on show at Safety In Action and Materials & Manual Handling from 21-23 March in concept form.

Developed by specialist electrical safety research and development company, Protectelec , Protex detects faults and isolates power quickly, protecting people and property. Protex is unique according to its manufacturer because it does not rely on an earth to operate.

Protex is compatible with both ac and dc voltage from 12V dc to 415V ac and works on all electrical equipment, whether Class 1, 2 or 3. About the size of a matchbox and with minimal moving parts, the switching technology can be readily incorporated into existing electrical equipment.

Because the Protex switching technology does not use power until a fault is detected, it is suitable for sensitive environments including mining, medical and aeronautical fields.

Protectelec believes Protex is the next generation in electrical safeguard systems because it is exceptionally fast, doest not need an earth to operate and protects both people and equipment from harmful electricity.

See the Protex switching technology at Protectelec's stand H42 at Safety In Action and Materials & Manual Handling from Monday 21 to Wednesday 23 March 2005 at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.
