The safety inspection or electrical inspection is a mandatory measure that is stipulated by occupational health and safety. The aim of the inspection is to protect people from the dangers of electrical current. The employer must ensure that the inspection is carried out at regular intervals.
The inspection by our Fronius technicians includes the following steps:
/ Cleaning (internal cleaning of the device, removal of metal dust)
/ Visual inspection (condition, damage, labels, fuses, etc. )
/ Mechanical inspection (housing, covers, mounting, cables, etc.)
/ Electrical safety check (measurements according to IEC 60974 - 4) Germany: section 5 of the DGUV Vorschrift 3, Austria: ÖVE/ÖN 8701-1, Switzerland: SR 832.30 section 32b
/ Check for correct functioning (manufacturer's specifications or state of the art)
The label is affixed to the successfully tested welding system and includes the date that the inspection was completed (month/year).
Electrical systems must be checked by an electrician before initial commissioning and after any changes or repairs prior to the machine being operated again. Generally speaking, the equipment must also undergo repeat testing every five years. We carry out the first inspection ex works in combination with a calibration.
