Voltage Detector Detects, Alerts of Strong Electric Field Presence

Sept. 6, 2016
The Watchman Work Area Voltage Detector, model WM-01, uses WAVi Work Area Voltage Indication technology.

HD Electric Co. now offers a new Watchman Work Area Voltage Detector, designed to detect and alert trained utility personnel working on or near high-voltage systems of strong electric fields surrounding high voltage conductors and power distribution equipment.

The Watchman Work Area Voltage Detector, model WM-01, uses WAVi Work Area Voltage Indication technology, and is typically placed in the vicinity of power lines or high voltage equipment to visually alert to the presence of an electrical field. The detector then alerts crews that they have an active electric field in the area.

The Watchman Work Area Voltage Detector uses spinning LED lights to indicate the presence of an electric field and a nearby energized conductor. The power button serves dual function: press once for on/off function; hold down for self-test to verify battery power and proper functioning of detector.

Once the Watchman Work Area Voltage Detector is turned on, it provides a “heartbeat” pattern to indicate it is actively checking for the presence of high voltage electric fields. The Watchman Work Area Voltage Detector contains powerful neodymium magnets that allow the detector to be mounted to accessory brackets or any magnetic surface.
