Since safety is of paramount importance to electric utilities, so should HDE’s V-Watch personal voltage devices be required personal protective equipment for every lineman. V-Watch is a device that provides visual and audible alerts of the dangerous presence of voltage at 2400 volts or more at a distance of 7-10 feet away.
V-Watch is worn around the neck of the lineman, usually during storms, where the worker may not be aware of the presence of downed power lines. Powered by a single 9 volt battery that lasts about a year, the V-Watch is always on with no power switch. Voltage sensing can be blocked by closing the patented protective case. Many utilities and contractors throughout the US require use of the V-Watch. Shouldn’t yours?
