Product Announcement from Hoyt Electrical Instrument Works, Inc.
This NEW PC range of High Voltage Multifunction Phasing
Sticks are: all-in-one, a Phase Comparitor with color coded scale indication, a Voltage Detector with Neon Indication and a Scaled Voltmeter. They are available in five models for applications up to 44kV systems (6.6kV, 11kV, 22kV, 33kV and 44kV).
The NEW PC range of Multifunction Phasing Sticks utilizes a long established technique to detect and measure High Voltages and perform phasing tests. These Dual Poles instruments incorporates modern, high quality glass fibre front end, composite polyurethane main body molding to give tough and very light weight construction and superior safety features. They have Analog Color Coded Dual Scales and Neon Indication.
They are not just VDE0681 part 5 compliant and IEC1243-2. They are practical and efficient. Because of their multifunction capabilities, you do not need to buy separates instruments, You can therefore stay within your budget without compromise. They are supplied complete with instruction manual and two FACTORY test report certificates and, optionally, a calibration certificate. They are housed in a superb High Quality modern Plastic Case with shock absorbing foam. The New PC range is self powered and does not requires battery. They are suitable for indoor and outdoor use (in dry weather). They do not require dismantling or re-assembling and do not have any user's assembled parts, so eliminating the risks of assembly mistake and accidents during High Voltage Work in a breakdown situation.
The NEW PC range does not have any dangerous, user selectable/assembled metal parts exposed to high voltage, thus, the user can't be exposed to lethal voltage while handling or testing with the new PC range. They are over-designed for increased user protection and are lighter than any other sticks on the market today. The indicator has been screened for high immunity to interference fields.
They determine the voltage and positively identify phases up to 44kV. We have measuring ranges from 6.6kV up to 44kV systems but others voltages can be manufactured on request. Fiberglass is of hot stick quality and tested to IEC specs (100kV / 300mm for 1 min). All front end (resistors) are encapsulated. These analog Multifunction Phasing Sticks are ideally suited for testing of grounded or ungrounded systems. Important applications include checking voltage fuses, testing for correct phase connections, and for absence of high voltage on deenergized lines or apparatus. The Dual scale read direct (no multiplier) in kVac or in % of full scale and is color coded (Green = in phase Red = out of phase). A Bright neon is included on the scale for easy visibility indoor and it has dual purpose. The neon is also a detector and start to lit when the voltage across the poles is higher than 1200Vac. In case of unlikely failure of the analog scale indicator, the neon can be used as voltage detector.
Our Manufacturing process and method ensure that every product is not just fully functional and calibrated after the assembly lines, but also within tight specifications tolerances before leaving the strict quality control of the factory. They are then re-checked, re-calibrated (optionally) and certified by an independent recognized authority. All our PC testers are versatile and single range for added safety. They have low metal content and nylon is used wherever possible. They are equipped with two fixed-length poles connected by a strong flexible, insulated cable. Hand guards are standard on all models. They are easy to handle, light weight, well insulated and designed to ensure maximum operator safety.
