V-Watch Personal Voltage Detectors

V-Watch Personal Voltage Detectors

SKU: V-Watch

The V-Watch Voltage Detector is an essential safety device designed to enhance the protection of individuals working around high-voltage electrical systems. It detects electric fields and energized equipment, alerting the user with both visual and audible alarms which intensify as one approaches the voltage source. The initial typical warning distance is approximately 7 feet (2.13m) from a 4kVAC conductor, with the distance increasing as the voltage level rises.

Key Features of the V-Watch Personal Voltage Detector:

  • Alerts users to the presence of high voltage environments.
  • Features both audible and visual alarms that escalate in frequency as proximity to high voltage increases.
  • Provides an initial typical warning distance of around 7 feet from a 4kVAC conductor, extending further at higher voltages.
  • Additional safety for storm restoration workers and first responders.
  • Low battery indicator and easily replaceable 9V field battery.
  • Durable, rugged housing equipped with a built-in self-test function.
  • Lightweight design, accompanied by a carrying case lanyard for ease of wear.
  • Available in two variants: the Standard version and the Pro version which includes a mute feature.

Included Accessories:

  • The V-Watch is housed in a nylon carrying case lanyard which is available in two versions:
    • The original C-10 Carrying Case Lanyard designed with black shielded material.
    • The new C-10FR Carrying Case Lanyard, featuring high-visibility safety green material plus an additional flame-resistant outer layer.


  • Sensitivity is factory-set based on a 50/60 Hertz sensing threshold.
  • Do not operate this device in voltages below 2400 Volts line-to-ground.
  • Typically warns at about 7 feet from a 4kV (2.4kV line-to-ground) A.C. conductor.
  • Operational Temperature Range: -20°F to +120°F (-29°C to 49°C).
  • Operating Frequency: 50Hz/60Hz.
  • Battery: 9V alkaline 1604A, IEC 6LR61, with a lifespan of 2 years in storage and 1 year for typical usage.
  • Acoustic Signal Pressure Level: 100 decibels.
  • Protection: Weather-resistant against rain as per IEC-529, Level 2.
  • Weight (with battery): 5.2 oz. (147 g.)
  • Dimensions: 3.5 x 2.88 x 1.25 inches (8.89 cm x 7.32 cm x 3.18 cm.)
  • Voltage Rating: Applicable for 2400VAC line-to-ground and higher.

This device is a crucial addition for anyone requiring an additional layer of safety when working in or around potentially hazardous high voltage areas.
