Protect yourself and other technicians by using this simple high voltage detector to test conductive objects and within minutes, you can avoid exposure to high voltage electrical shock. In just a few seconds, with Fluke Networks high voltage detector pen a technician can determine if it's safe to work around areas like:

Transformer cases and circuit breaker housings Power ground wires or newly-driven ground rods Mobile homes, metallic siding or metal framing Pedestals, crossboxes or conduit Street light fixtures or electrical machinery

The High Voltage or Power Detector Pen is a proven life-saver, with more than 20 years of service in telecommunications outside plant and power utility applications. The high voltage detector detects ac and dc voltages through a long-life carbide tip, which is protected by a plastic cap when not in use. To use the high voltage detector, you simply place the carbide tip on the object in question, press the magnetic trigger, and observe the LEDs. If the green LED illuminates, the surface being touched is free from electrical hazards. If the red LED flashes, dangerous voltage is present.
