Personal Voltage & Current Detector

Always on. Always Aware. Always Safe.

Deadly voltage and current hide in plain sight.

COMPASS® detects electrical threats, reveals their location,

and keeps you aware with a single glance.

Electricity kills 

Even the most experienced professionals can get electrocuted. At Safeguard Equipment we know you’re passionate about eliminating preventable accidents and establishing a safe work environment for your team. That’s why we created COMPASS®. Standardized safety procedures and traditional PPE are great places to start, but still leave a lot to be desired when it comes to detecting electrical threats. Only COMPASS® can give workers constant awareness of the voltage and current within reach.

“Our Crew Foreman was walking the job during storm restoration to restore services to a house and repair secondaries. Upon entering a backyard, the crew members’ COMPASS® Brand Personal Voltage Detectors were alerting them of an energized conductor that was laying across a chain-link fence. The crew went and opened cutouts, then tested and verified voltage to confirm the line was no longer energized. It was a good catch!”
