Personal Voltage Detectors Provides Extra Level of Safety

Designed to be worn on the outside of your clothing at mid-torso, the V-Watch Personal Voltage Detector provides an extra level of safety.

HD Electric Co. is preparing for storm season with its V-Watch Personal Voltage Detectors.

Designed to be worn on the outside of your clothing at mid-torso, the V-Watch Personal Voltage Detector provides an extra level of safety by detecting and alerting the wearer to the presence of electrical fields or energized electrical equipment.

The V-Watch Personal Voltage Detector allows restoration workers and first responders to safely and effectively restore power to customers by providing an audible alarm which increases in frequency as the wearer gets closer to the voltage source. Typical initial warning distance is about 7 feet (2.13m) from a 4kVAC conductor. Warning distance increases with higher voltages.

It comes with a durable nylon carrying case which is electronically shielded and used for storage when the V-Watch Detector is not in use. There are two versions of the carrying case--one that is flame resistant material with a safety-green color for high visibility and the other that is a black shielded material.
