A Discharge Hook is used to drain capacitive voltage. The probe is first used to make contact, then the hook can be used to make direct contact bypassing the fuse. The fuse gives added protection in case initial contact is accidentally made on energized equipment. Fuse is rated at 8 kV maximum, 6 amperes continuous. A Discharge Hook is a special discharging device used to deenergize capacitors and other voltage retaining components before maintenance work is performed. Mounting clip (Cat. No. 1925MC) is included. Standard handle length is 2 feet (0.61 m). Other cable and handle lengths are available. Features & Benefits: ● Resistive Discharge Hooks/Probes with resistors help eliminate initial surge current. Second hook bypasses resistors for residual discharge. Resistive discharge hooks and probes use #6 flexible copper, clear-jacketed cable, a hand guard, hook or probe, and a 1” (2.5 cm) diameter fiberglass insulating handle. The handle complies with ASTM F-711. All come with a clear PVC cover to protect resistors from damage from bumps and knocks. Not all resistors fit all hooks. Please note resistor’s outside diameter and length. Mounting clip (Cat. No. 1925MC) is included. Other lengths and configurations are available. ● FOR DISCHARGE ONLY. DO NOT USE AS LIVE LINE TOOL OR GROUNDING DEVICE.
