Compass LV Logo

Personal Voltage and Current Detector designed for Low Voltage.

P/N: CE60LV (60Hz), CE50LV (50Hz)

The Compass LV Personal Voltage & Current Detector is lifesaving PPE that detects energized sources and alerts users to the presence of voltage and current in their environment long before they are in danger of being electrocuted. Its intelligent design allows it to be configured for nearly any work environment making Compass LV an ideal choice for workers that finds themselves working in fields including industrial manufacturing, construction, mining, and telecommunication.

Compass LV is engineered to easily attach 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 LV immediately provides the user with both audible and visual notifications.

Detects Electric and Magnetic Fields radiating from sources 360° around the user.

Proximity Awareness

Proximity Alerts are provided for both Voltage and Current detection long before coming in contact with a threat.

Directional Awareness

After providing the initial proximity alerts, Compass™ then shows the approximate direction of the energized conductor.

Smart 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 mute redundant alerts. Resumes alerts if user moves closer to the energized source.

Autonomous, Recurring Sensor Self-Test

Compass LV’s self-test function runs every 10 minutes to verify that its 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 LV 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 LV 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 LV comes equipped with power-saving features which allow it to automatically enter sleep mode after being inactive for 5 minutes. When threats are not detected, power functions are reduced to save battery.

Ideal Form factor

Compass LV 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.
