The DC 8 Modiewark non-contact voltage detector has eight sensitivity settings.Where the DC Rescue has two settings, high and low for easier use. The DC 8 Modiewark comes standard with 8 factory sensitivity settings,these settings can be easily adjusted whilst using the device. By placing the tester on the 8 (High) setting, approach the unknown DC voltage power source, as you get closer and find the device is too sensitive. Turn the tester down to a lower number (1) being the lowest setting, the factory settings can be set up for your own personal requirements or for your particular areas that need to be indicted. The tester can be used by untrained electrical personnel, where non-touch was vital. Staff can be in-house trained on a safe operating procedure of the device. The DC 8 Modiewark can be used on power and sub-stations ,solar ,electric mining vehicles ,trains ,trams, anywhere DC power is present over 50 volts. The DC 8 tester comes in a hard case, has a black handle and an easy to use with adjustable setting ,the tester also has Hi-Visual Decal on the head of the unit so it can be seen in the poor lit areas.
The Modiewark DC range of non-contact and contact voltage testers (Proximity) are the safest choice you could make, in any situation where you are testing low voltage (50 Volts DC) or high voltage (1,000,000 Volts DC+). With a non-contact voltage detector and the correct operating procedure the risk of electrocution is greatly reduced.
Electrical supply companies within Australia and the United Sates have been using the original non-contact & contact voltage detector Modiewark for over 30 years in day to day operations, in overhead and underground live or dead determinations. Over that period of time accidents have been reduced as electrical supply staff find that double checking the power has been deactivated a quick and easy task. Firstly as a proximity device to determine live or dead situations and then as a touch device to verify the tester has physically reached the AC field around designated mains under test.
The unique properties of the non-contact & contact voltage detector is that no contact needs to be made to the active source.
The following range of GL McGavin Modiewark products will save lives in any environmental disaster or accident.
G.L McGavin have been manufacturing High & Low voltage testers since 1975. The new G.L McGavin Digital hand held Proximity Tester FR30 is designed for Electricians, Technicians and the Fire & Rescue departments.For electricians it can be used for picking up live wires behind walls, identifying live cables and tracing live cable runs. For the Fire & Rescue it is used for the safety of the rescue personnel in situations where live voltage can be present impeding rescue operations. Because it is a Digital device it can be programmed to suit any application.
