Stray Voltage Detector
The Stray Voltage Detector, model LV-5, is used to detect stray voltage as low as 5 volts which may be present on any electrically conductive surface such as street light poles, guide guy wires, wood transmission poles, meter cans, manhole covers and many other metallic surfaces in and around electrical utilities. This newer LV-5 has a bigger, more robust grip, a brighter LED indication that improves daylight visibility and has a tester built into the holster to quickly test the detector on a known voltage source before and after use. Otherwise it operates the same as the LV-S-5. The Detector operates by holding it with a bare or gloved hand and directly contacting the metal tip of the Detector to the potentially energized source.
