AGL-5 enhances safety for airfield ground-lighting
16th July 2009

The new AGL-5 two-pole voltage detector is specially designed for use on Airfield Ground Lighting (AGL) systems. It enables service engineers, maintenance personnel and airport technical staff to verify that runway and airfield lighting circuits have been isolated from the power supply before maintenance or inspection work commences.

The two-pole voltage-detection system has been designed for ground lighting systems and can be used to detect the presence of voltages from 50V up to 5KV.
Ultrabright red LEDs and a polarising filter make the voltage indication clearly visible in all working environments and conditions.

Designed and manufactured in compliance with international safety standards, the unit is totally encapsulated in a shock-resistant high impact rugged enclosure and is IP64 rated.

The new two-pole AGL-5 is supplied with a proving unit for self-test proof of performance, before and after use. All equipment is also supplied in a protective carrying case.

The introduction of the new airfield ground lighting tester expands the Seaward range of high-voltage safety testing equipment, which includes a comprehensive range of neon and digital voltage indictors, safe discharge units, neon and digital phasing equipment, insulator leakage detectors and current clamps.
