The Volt Stick Sound is a 230v AC non-contact, instant voltage checker featuring both red LED indicator and sounder, for added confidence when checking for the presence of an AC voltage.
It is a non-contact instant voltage tester for safely checking for the presence of an AC voltage. This model is similar to our orhiginal 230Y version, but with the addition of a buzzer indicator for increased peace of mind.
Just the size of a pen, the Volt Stick Sound provides a visual red LED and sounder indication where a live voltage is detected in conducting materials - which may be either exposed or insulated.
The Volt Stick Sound is an ideal tool for an electrician to keep with them at all times so they can check for voltages in:
One of the main safety features of the Sound - and, in fact, the whole Volt Stick range - is that there is no on/off switch. Therefore, all VoltStick devices are always ready to use and there is no way you will forget to switch it on.
Before you use the Volt Stick Sound you must test to make sure it is working correctly. The best way to check the Volt Stick is against a known live source in the area you are about to work; this could be a switch or a flex to an electrical appliance.
The SOUND is designed with a sensitivity that makes it possible to indicate live and neutral. When the Volt Stick buzzes and lights up red, this means a voltage is detected. If there is no light/sound this means there is no voltage detected. Remember to make sure you hold the Volt Stick behind the safety guard when using and testing it.
1. Switch the light switch on and move the Volt Stick Sound around the switch until it illuminates.
2. Turn the light switch off and the Volt Stick should also turn off. This means your Volt Stick is working!
As the SOUND is very accurate and designed to detect 230 volts from 4mm, it is important you check the whole way around the flex. The Volt Stick indicators will go on and off as it moves further and closer to the live.
Once you have confirmed your Volt Stick is working, you can repeat the procedure on what you need to test. It is recommended once you have finished testing to double check the Volt Stick once again on that known live source to make sure it is still working correctly.
If the results from your Volt Stick are not what you expected - make sure the batteries are working and replace them if necessary. It is good practice to regularly check and replace the batteries, it is also good to remove the batteries from the Volt Stick when it is not going to be used for some time.
