Surge Protection Equipment for Working on Electric Vehicles & Chargers

Maintenance and repair of electric vehicles is new territory for many garages. The charged battery in the d.c. on-board power supply, for example, has a considerably higher threat potential than a conventional 12 V system.
The risk of an arc fault when someone is approaching or in case of a short-circuit requires comprehensive protection measures.
Protective equipment for employees
To ensure occupational health and safety, vehicle manufacturers and garages must provide personal protective equipment to their employees.
