Extech DV690 non-contact HV detector rated up to 69 kV
By Anthony Capkun
May 13, 2021 – FLIR Systems says its Extech DV690 is the first non-contact high-voltage detector with a range of up to 69 kV, providing early warning alerts of energized electrical components for anyone working around high-voltage equipment.
The DV690 features five mounting options: hand-held, around the neck, clipped to a belt, strapped to an arm, or attached to a universal spline hot stick. The three hands-free possibilities allow the most optimal operation to efficiently and carefully complete a job. Using a hot stick creates a safer distance to target, extending operator reach.
The detector also features an LED alarm and 106 dB buzzer to notify users of the presence of dangerous voltage. The unit is built with an IP54 housing to protect from dust intrusion and water spray, and drop tested to 4 feet.
