HotStick AC Voltage Detector Applications
The HotStick AC Voltage Detector has found many applications especially with first responders, fire, police and ambulances responding to vehicular accidents; with search and rescue operations in urban and rural settings as well as with cleanup crews working on downed trees after wind and ice storms. View a sample list of applications below.
|Urban Search & Rescue:|
Detection of unknown sources of unshielded and potentially hazardous AC voltages. Verification of proper power disconnect.
After earthquakes, wind and ice storms or floods to identify energized wires on roads or structural parts in collapsed buildings and flooded sites. Quick check of extent of power outage.
Identification of nearby high voltages and dangers from electrical wires during size-up, and after fires, during overhaul and investigations.
Warning of energized wires hidden by fallen trees or caused by back-feeding from motor generators.
Quick check of site and vehicle for potential exposure to AC voltage. Verification and monitoring of power disconnect.
During plant modification or industrial rescue to prove power disconnect, identify alternate sources or ungrounded machinery.
|Confined Space Rescue:|
To verify power shut-off and proper lockout at the entry site and of machinery and equipment posing hazard through accidental activation.
Locate potential sources of electrical shock during rescue operations.
Avoid dangers of electrical shock or explosion caused by electrical shorts/arcs.
Detect presence of AC voltage, avoid electrical hazards at accident scenes or during search, prisoner detention, and surveillance.
