Seaward KD1E High Voltage Indicator

Seaward KD1E High Voltage Indicator

SKU: KD1E/15D, KD1E/KAD, KD1E/19S, KD1E/33, KD1E/22, KD1E/19, KD1E

The Seaward KD1E High Voltage Indicator is an indispensable tool for technicians needing to confirm operational voltages and perform safe electrical checks in a variety of settings.

This portable instrument, available in both neon and digital formats, is used for verifying voltage presence in earthed neutral electrical systems. It meets all recommended safety standards for creepage and clearance distances, featuring high-grade PVC tubing and integrated resistor chains for enhanced safety. The PH3 proving unit, essential for safety checks before and after use, accompanies the voltage indicator. Digital models deliver precise voltage measurements and come with a detachable earth lead, a battery charger, and a PH3 proving unit.
