Press Release Summary:
Able to detect presence of voltages from 80 V to 275 kV without physical contact, Model 280HVD employs 10-position rotary switch that selects detection range. As lightweight sensor is moved closer to voltage-carrying conductor, sensor head picks up radiated electric field. Once range threshold is reached, audible and visual indicators warn operator of live conductors. Universal spline on back-end facilitates attachment to any standard hot stick.

AEMC Introduces Non-Contact High Voltage Detector
The Model 280HVD is designed to detect the presence of high voltage, a range of 80V to 275kV, without physical contact.
A ten position rotary switch selects the detection range. As the lightweight sensor is moved closer to the voltage-carrying conductor, its sensor head picks up the radiated electric field. Once the range threshold is reached, audible and visual indicators warns the operator of live conductors. A universal spline on the back-end facilitates attachment to any standard hot stick.
