The 965 range of fully insulated VDE screwdrivers are intended to be used by professional electricians. They’re designed to completely include all the requirements of EN 60900 legislation, fully achieving the requirements of the professional electrician. The EN 60900 requires all tools are tested to 10kV, making them suitable for working on live AC circuits of up to 1kV and DC circuits of up to 1.5kV.
The 965 range incorporates all the usual tip heads like Plain Slot, Cross Slot, PZ Type and the new PZ/SL, which is specifically designed for use with electrical screws on RCB & MCB’s. The new PZ/SL tip is becoming increasingly common on RCB & MCB’s and to help avoid shearing the heads of the new PZ/SL screws these screwdrivers are essential.
The 965 range, not only includes individual screwdrivers but also several sets of interchangeable screwdrivers. The interchangeable screwdrivers all fully tested to VDE standards combining safety with flexibility. The blade bits in the sets are all interchangeable with each different set, so no matter which set you have you can always choose another 965 screwdriver set, safe in the knowledge that the screwdriver blades are interchangeable.
We also have a 1-5Nm Torque Screwdriver Set in the 965 range. The torque requirement is obligatory for the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations 134.1.1 states, among other things ‘that manufacturers instructions must always be followed’ and most switchgear manufacturers have torque settings listed as part of the instructions for their ranges. Don’t be caught out by the latest wiring regs, get yourself the 965 torque screwdriver set.
