Voltage Detector - FVD

The Foreign Voltage Detector (FVD) tests for potentially hazardous AC voltage that may be encountered by communications technicians. The FVD warns technicians of hazardous voltage without contacting the electric source and provides visual indication of the amount of AC being detected on a 10 step bar graph. An audible alarm will sound if the detected AC voltage exceeds 50 volts.

There are two models of leather pouches available that can be attached to the technician’s tool belt: 

  • FVDP is for carrying the FVD Model
  • FVDP3 is for carrying the FVD, scissors and knife

Features of the FVD:

  • Gives advance warning on extremely hazardous voltages
  • Senses voltages without contacting the source electrically
  • Indicates voltage both visually and audibly
  • Suppresses 20Hz ringing and radio stations’ signals with built-in filters
  • Housed in non-conductive material
  • Exceeds dielectric strength tests for greater than 20 KV
  • Allows tests parameters to be factory adjusted
  • UL listed to U.S. and Canadian safety standards
  • Made in U.S.A.
  • U. S. Patent No. 5,952,820
