Voltage Detectors

Pfisterer KP-Test 5 Dual is a capacitive voltage detector that is similar in design to the KP-Test 5. The one difference is the the KP-Test 5 dual is able to switch between two nominal voltage ranges allowing  a larger system range to be covered without increasing interference field susceptibility.

The voltage detector can be used for both indoor and outdoor medium voltage switchgear and overhead line applications (MV).

The Pfisterer KP-Test 5 Dual voltage detector provides a high level of user-friendliness and user safety – KP-Test 5 Dual is designed and type tested to Standard IEC 61243-1.

Other versions of the MV medium voltage detector with deviating voltages, ranges of nominal voltages, frequencies and languages are available on request.

KP-Test 5 Dual instruments detect the following voltage classes: 5kV – 12kV, 10kV – 20kV and 13kV – 36kV and 20kV – 36kV
