Voltage Detectors (LV MV HV 11kV 33kV)

Voltage Detectors (LV MV HV 11kV 33kV)

CATU voltage detectors are suitable for use on low, medium and high voltage applications including distribution, overhead line and transmission systems.

The range of voltage detectors from CATU which include IEC rated, offer reliable and precise detection for maximum electrical safety. Detection is provided by double notification – audible alarm and flashing visible light.

Detectors are used for varying voltages and applications and are rated for use on 3.3kV, 6.6kV, 33kV and above when determining if an overhead line or similar installation is carrying power and to what level.

HOW TO SELECT THE CORRECT VOLTAGE DETECTor

Key factors to consider when selecting a voltage detector:

  • Low or high voltage – is the detector required to test the power of a low or high voltage application.
  • Are there any other detection instruments or electrical protection products required.
  • What operating voltage does the product need to detect – voltage detectors are separated by their different operating limits.

Typically, voltage detectors are used in conjunction with insulating gloves or an electrical hot stick. This is to ensure the operator is fully protected against any live electrical power that is still present or if the cables are live.
