The VD1000P is a direct contact, capacitive type voltage detector for use on voltages from proximity to 99.9kV on distributions circuits and 999kV on Transmission conductors. The VD1000 indicates Line-to-Ground values.
Each unit has a five position switch for the following functions:
OFF Use this position for Storage and Transit
P Non-Contact, Sensing Presence of Voltage from the Ground
URD Direct Contact, Underground Primary (01.0 - 99.9)
OH Direct Contact, Overhead Lines (01.0 – 99.9)
OHT Direct Contact, Substation & Transmission Lines (001 – 999)
This unit incorporates a self-test feature each time the selector switch is turned to another position displaying the battery voltage. A reading less than 07.0 indicates low battery.
