Voltstik

 Voltstik by Sensorlink is radio based distribution voltmeter

The Volstik is a distribution voltage voltmeter. It's designed for use on lines and in substations. This meter is employed onto a line by using a hotstick and universal chuck adapter. It's capable of measuring voltage phase to phase, and phase to ground.

This voltmeter provides the ability for the user to measure the potential of any two points within a medium voltage distribution system. Voltage drop along a line can be measured or a check of phase to ground voltage on the primary side of a voltage complaint can determine if the cause belongs to the utility or the customer.

The most common use for measuring voltage in a distribution system is measuring the phase to phase voltage. The Voltstik offers advantages to the traditional methods: has an accuracy rating of ±1%.

The universal hotstick adaptor and internal structure of the Voltstik are made of a long, glass, fiber reinforced, thermoplastic polyurethane . This spaceage polymer is non-conductive and extremely strong. The cable used to make the two point connection is rated at 40,000 volts DC, with a breakdown voltage of 80,000 volts DC.

The display shows the voltage measurement and continues to update the reading three times per second using a radio frequency emitter. The display features a five-digit display that shows full scale1-volt resolution. While in the HOLD mode the display will hold up to four readings.
