  • Capacitor Communication Controls

    VARCOM® Series - HD Electric Company

    The VARCOM® Series of Capacitor Controls with ComFlex® communications ready technology allows the user the option of deploying controls with communications factory installed, or the option of deploying the control initially as a local control and later upgrading it with communications. VARCOM controls are modeled after the popular NoMax Capacitor Control design, which features a best-in-class local control user interface, while also allowing for the addition of communications.

  • Capacitor Tester

    Cap Check® - HD Electric Company

    The Cap Check® line of capacitor testers is designed to identify internal problems with a capacitor or capacitor bank. The instruments are proven to be a valuable asset in maintaining both pole-mounted and substation capacitors. The testers will identify bad or failing capacitors that may rupture upon energizing. Cap Check III is designed for pole mounted and individual capacitors and can enable a two-man crew to check a bank of 12 in about 20 minutes. Cap Check II is based on the same principles and specifically designed for checking capacitor units in substation banks.

  • Single Stick Digital Voltmeter

    SVM-25 - HD Electric Company

    The Single Stick Digital Voltmeter, model SVM-25, is a compact, high accuracy digital voltmeter with capacitive test point mode and peak hold. Voltage is displayed on the large, bright LED display that can easily be read from a distance or in bright conditions.

  • Dual Display Digital Voltmeter

    DDVM-40 - HD Electric Company

    The Double Vision® Dual Display Digital Voltmeter, model DDVM-40, is a compact, high accuracy dual display voltmeter and phasing set with capacitive test point mode and peak hold. Voltage is displayed on the two large, bright LED displays that can easily be read from a distance or in bright conditions. The two LED displays are synchronized so that the same voltage reading is shown on both displays.

  • Dual Display Phasing Voltmeter

    DDPM-40 - HD Electric Company

    The Double Vision® Dual Display Phasing Voltmeter, model DDPM-40, is a compact, highly accurate wireless voltmeter and phasing set with capacitive test point and peak hold modes. Can be used individually as voltmeters or together for phasing operations up to 100 ft. (30m) apart. The DDPM-40 will show the leading or lagging phase as well as the phase angle during wireless phasing operations. The DDPM-40 measures voltage from 5V to 43kV. The two sets can be used in both overhead and underground applications - accurate and repeatable to within 1%.

  • Dual Display Wireless Voltage Indicating Phaser

    DDVIP-138 - HD Electric Company

    The Dual Display® Voltage Indicating Phaser, model DDVIP-138, is a completely wireless dual display voltage indicator and phasing tool for voltages from 100v to 138kV line-to-line. It includes a pair of lightweight, single stick line-to-ground voltage indicators that communicate with each other wirelessly. The DDVIP-138 can also be used independently as Digital Voltage Indicators.

  • Local Capacitor Controls

    NOMAX 900 Series - HD Electric Company

    The NOMAX Local Capacitor Controls provide users with best in class local VAR management support and feature a user friendly interface and local programming capability. The NOMAX 900 Series Capacitor Controls are smaller and easily field programmable from the front panel. There are three models of the NOMAX 900 Series Capacitor Controls available to suit your needs.

  • DC Leakage Tester

    PT-5000W - HD Electric Company

    The PT-5000W is a portable, general purpose dual voltage leakage tester designed to test primary distribution voltage or secondary voltage equipment for faults or high leakage currents. Use only on cables or equipment that have been verified to be both de-energized and discharged. The test voltage can be set by the user to either 500VDC or 5,000VDC. The PT-5000W can be used to check for leakage on cables, transformers, capacitors, joints, terminations, insulators, etc.

  • Feeder Ammeter Clear Test

    FACT-1 - HD Electric Company

    The FACT, Feeder Ammeter Clear Test, prevents damage to distribution feeder circuits by detecting ground connections before a feeder is energized. Distribution feeder circuits can be temporarily taken out of service for planned or unplanned maintenance. This maintenance can include replacing crossarms or insulators, reconductoring, replacing certain transformers or any other task that cannot be readily performed on a live circuit. Typical work safety practices require the installation of bolted grounds on all three phases at every location where work is being performed. Feed circuits are typically deenergized at a substation.

  • Phase Sequence Indicator

    K-7-1 - HD Electric Company

    The K-7-1 Phase Sequence Indicator indicates the order of succession in time of the different voltage peaks of a multi-phase supply. The K-7-1 is used in connection with the making of three-phase circuit installations or alterations, and replacement installations of motors and generators. It can be used for making continuity tests of circuits of poly-phase systems. It's also valuable in making connections of power-factor meters, voltampere meters, watt and watthour meters and relays.

  • Digital Voltmeters And Phasing Sets

    DVM-80UVK - HD Electric Company

    The DVM-80UVK is a new and exciting addition to our phasing voltmeter product line. As the largest supplier of innovative voltage testing and measuring devices in the market today, we have expanded the features of our popular industry-proven DVM-80 series voltmeter and packaged it with an assembly of accessories, offering it as a complete, ready-to-use universal voltmeter kit. Priced competitively as a complete kit, this may be the best value in the market today.

  • Insulator Tester

    IT-4 - HD Electric Company

    The Hi-Test® IT-4 Insulator Tester detects non-visible insulator failures before they cause operations difficulties or safety threats to line crews. The Insulator Tester can be used as a routine maintenance tool to test insulators quickly, safely and reliably. It can be applied to any in-service transmission or distribution insulator and at any voltage, provided there are two or more insulators between conductor and ground. It can also be used to test de-energized insulators prior to installation.

  • High Voltage Digital Ammeter

    Halo I - HD Electric Company

    The HALO® is a high voltage digital ammeter for use on power distribution systems designed to take True RMS AC current measurements. Its open-core design allows the user to quickly hook it over a conductor from the end of a hotstick and obtain a current reading in amperes. The HALO can be used to take spot load measurements on a single phase, as well as take readings on all three phases to determine load balance.

  • High Voltage Digital Ammeter

    HVA-2000 - HD Electric Company

    The HVA-2000 is a high voltage digital ammeter designed for taking AC current measurements up to 2000 amps, 25-500Hz. The HVA can be used on system voltages up to 500kV. The large, bright LED display allows real time or peak current monitoring of current from the longest of telescoping hotsticks. The HVA-2000 will store the last 4 readings – no need to bring the unit up to the conductor and then back down for each reading! To clear the readings simply press and hold the ON button. The High Voltage Ammeter is capable of taking spot-load studies at transformers or any mid-span location, as well as phase balance studies on primary or secondary lines.
