Compass™ by Safeguard equipment
RELIABLE DETECTION OF ENERGIZED SOURCES FOR VOLTAGE AND CURRENT IN THE USER’S ENVIRONMENT.
Compass™ Current Detection by Safeguard equipment
360 DEGREES OF PROTECTION
Detects Electric and Magnetic Fields radiating from sources 360° around the user.
Proximity Alerts are provided for both Voltage and Current detection long before coming in contact with a threat.
After providing the initial proximity alerts, Compass™ then shows the approximate direction of the energized conductor.

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.
