Waukegan, Ill., January 26, 2010—HD Electric Company’s new DVI-500 Digital Voltage Indicators are a new addition to their digital voltage indicator (DVI) line. The DVI is a direct contact, compact instrument designed to read the voltage on a conductor from 0.1 kV up to 500 kV line-to-ground and display the voltage on a large 3-digit ultra-bright LED display.
The display is easy to read on the end of a long hotstick and can be used on overhead lines or in underground applications. The DVI-500T can also measure elbow test points. An audible indication is given when voltage is detected, and allows the user to distinguish between nominal and induced voltages.
