The DS/MS/VA Voltage Detector comprises five main components, each rated to suit the specific application, as follows:
- Contact – To establish contact with the live conductor. Available as mushroom, pointer or ‘Y’ contact to suit the application.
- Extension – Manufactured and tested to suit the application voltage and provide calibrated capacitance to operate the detector. Four types of extension are available, to suit the specific application voltage range. These may be attached in line to the main body or at an angle using an adaptor.
- Adaptor – Two types of adaptor are available, these connect the extension to the main body of the detector. A 90o adaptor is available for applications where it is
preferential to stand directly below the point of contact with the extension at right angles to the main body, allowing a clear view of the application to the conductor/busbar. Alternatively, a 60o adaptor is also available for applications where it is preferential to hold the detector at an inclined angle perpendicular to the conductor/busbar, to improve visibility of the detector. For applications where a direct (in-line) application is preferred e.g. inside a cabinet with restricted access, the extension can be directly screwed into the main body omitting the adaptor.
- Main Body – Houses the voltage detector.
- Handle – Provides suitable insulation from the voltage being tested and also provides storage for the main body when not in use. Two types of handle are available to suit the operating voltage.
