The AC HotStick is a safety device designed for professional rescuers
which provides warning of exposed high voltage AC from a safe distance.
The AC HotStick will give early audible ("beeping") and visual
(flashing LED) warning of the presence of dangerous voltages without the
need to contact the surface carrying the current. The closer the user
comes to the source of the voltage, the more rapidly the unit beeps and
The tool has found many applications, especially with first
responders, fire, police, and EMT's responding to vehicular accidents;
with search and rescue operations in urban and rural settings; and with
clean up crews working on downed trees after wind and ice storms.
However, industrial users, and anybody else who may unknowingly be
exposed to the dangers of electrical shock and electrocution, will find
the AC HotStick a necessity. It is simple to use and is well
constructed. It comes with a built in self test so there is never any
doubt about it functioning properly. All of these things have made the
AC HotStick an invaluable safety tool with a devoted following.
