VD Traction Voltage Detectors

100% Electronic

  • Rolling Stock and Fixed Installations
  • Protection of maintenance personnel : an ABB innovation.

  • Faced with a current offering with insufficient reliability that doesn’t meet the market standards, ABB has innovated with the VD Traction voltage detector. This 100% electronic product allows your maintenance operatives to detect the presence of a continuous or alternating voltage, before carrying out operations on equipment. When the diode flashes, the voltage is greater than 50 V and when it is extinguished, the voltage is below this limit. Provided with a double internal function and independent LEDs, the VD Traction voltage detector offers redundant safety and a lifetime of greater than 1 million hours. Guaranteed for 2 years, it allows reliable decisions to carry out operations to be made and protects personnel from dangerous high voltages.
  • Utilisation

  • Electronic detectors for direct and alternating voltages. This safety device signals the presence of dangerous voltages via the independent flashing of two LEDs (Light emitting diodes). A secondary supply voltage is not necessary.
