As a worldwide manufacturer of hot-line tools and equipment, Hastings understands that every day has the potential to bring the unexpected to lineworkers. That is why Hastings designs every product – including its Voltage Detector – with safety in mind.

This live tester, non-contact Voltage Detector helps ensure the safety of every lineworker by giving them the voltage information they need to make the right decisions. Static discriminator technology exclusive to Hastings’ Live Tester provides more reliable detection on low-voltage ranges, meaning no more false alarms.

Featuring a water-resistant design, Hastings’ Voltage Detector includes an electronic touchpad with 11 range settings from 240 volts to 230 kV as well as two URD settings, 15 kV and 25 kV. Each detector has a built-in self-test function, a high-quality beeper, visual and audible operator feedback, and an auto power-off function.

Sold separately, Hastings’ Proof Tester provides lineworkers with additional safety and diagnostic capabilities. When no known voltage is present, the Proof Tester allows the operator to make sure the Voltage Detector is working properly by pushing and holding a single button.

This add-on tool features a low-battery indicator and runs on an included 9-volt battery. It fits in the Voltage Detector’s case and weighs less than half a pound.
