The CHANCE Proximity Voltage Indicator gives linemen a smarter non-contact testing tool, with features such as user-defined minimum detection range and a lightweight frame of 17.6 ounces. The CHANCE Proximity Voltage Indicator user-defined minimum range feature reduces nuisance audibles. Limiting dangerous variants in known voltage situations also makes non-contact testing safer for linemen trying to test a specific line or level of current.

CHANCE Proximity Voltage Indicator features include:
• User-defined minimum detection range,
• Auto-ranging capacitive test point,
• Easy-access battery replacement, and
• Measure phase-to-phase voltage classes up to 500kVAC.

The CHANCE Proximity Voltage Indicator responds to a sensed field in three ways. First, a sensing LED changes from blinking to constant when it detects an electric field. Second, illuminated LEDs represent the class of voltage present. Third, an audible alarm indicates dangerous levels of voltage.

Linemen who need help with their tool in the field can scan the QR code on the product with their smartphone to access the video manual, repair form and service line.
The CHANCE Proximity Voltage Indicator is available for purchase through Hubbell distributors.
