compass voltage current detector personal voltage indicator safety equipment

Personal Voltage and Current Detector designed for Low Voltage.

NOTE: Compass LV is available for samples & pre-orders, full production run coming soon.

P/N: CMP-1-0-LV

The Compass™ Personal Voltage & Current Detector is a smart life-saving device that detects energized sources and warns users long before they are in danger of being electrocuted. It alerts users of the proximity and direction of an energized source. This wearable voltage and current detector is built with an intelligent design allowing it to be configured to nearly any work environment. Compass LV is ideal for workers that finds themselves working in environments such as industrial, construction, mining, and telecommunication.

Compass™ is engineered to attach easily under the brim of any standard hard hat. Positioned within the user’s peripherals, it is the first product of its kind to provide viewable alerts of any unseen electrical threats. This strategic placement allows it to provide a 360° detection area around the user. Once a threat is detected, Compass™ immediately provides the user with both audible and visual notifications.

Auto-Adaptive Sensitivity

Initializes in highest-sensitivity mode. Issues alert based on positive changes in the electric and magnetic field indicating an approaching energized surface. Briefly issues full notifications then adjusts to the current environment to eliminate further redundant nuisance alerts. Regains sensitivity as a ​threat gets farther away from the user.

Autonomous, Recurring Sensor Self-Test

The hourly self-test verifies that the sensors are operating correctly and accurately. Tests are done in the background to prevent any nuisance to the user. A heads-up-display will provide notification if the product is defective or is not working correctly.

Flexible Power System

The Compass™ personal voltage and current detector comes with a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery and uses a common 5V USB 2.0 Micro B charge point access. Compass™ has a 10-day battery life (non-frequent alerts), 5-hour battery life in rigorous activity (frequent alerts), charges in 1.5 hours, and has an easy-to-check battery life monitor. Typical battery life is 3-5 years before the reduction in charge capacity depending on use.

Compass™ wearable voltage detector comes equipped with power-saving features which allows it to automatically turning off when inactive (no motion) for 5 minutes. When threats are not detected, power functions are reduced to save battery.

Ideal Form factor

Compass™ wearable voltage detector is ergonomic and efficient. It’s small, low-profile housing clips underneath the hard hat brim out of direct line-of-sight of the user. The unit weighs 0.5 ounces and is 90 x 30 x 10 [mm] in dimension.
