New: V-Watch Personal Voltage Detectors

Posted on

Announcing the release of the new V-Watch Personal Voltage Detectors, now available on

V-Watch Personal Voltage Detectors – It can save your life. It’s that simple.


Worn on the outside of your clothing at mid-torso, the V-Watch® provides that extra level of safety by detecting and alerting you to the presence of electric fields or energized electrical equipment surrounding high voltage electrical systems. In emergencies, crews can move in safety to quickly restore power. It is available in two versions – Standard and Pro. The Pro version allows comes with a mute feature. Each model comes in a tough nylon carrying case lanyard that is worn around the neck during use.

V-Watch Personal Voltage Detector Features

  • Alerts workers to the proximity of high voltage
  • Audible and visual alarms increase in frequency the closer the worker gets to the high voltage source
  • Typical initial warning distance is about 7 feet (2.13m) from a 4kVAC conductor
  • Warning distance increases with higher voltages
  • Provides another level of awareness and safety protection for storm restoration workers and first responders
  • Carrying case lanyard
    • Two versions available – can be used with any V-Watch models, old or new
      • New C-10FR carrying case lanyward – high-visibility safety green shielded material with an outer layer of flame resistant material
      • C-10 carrying case lanyard – black shielded material
    • Electrically shielded
    • Storage case when the V-Watch is not in use
    • Lanyard allows user to adjust to optimum mid-torso position
