Compass™ - A Reliable Detection of Energized Sources for Voltage & Current in the User's Environment

Part Number: 970757728
Mfg Part Number: 8600015131
Brand: Safeguard Compass

Compass™ is a smart, innovative, life-saving device that detects energized sources and warns users long before they are in danger of being electrocuted. It alerts users of their proximity to a threat and then informs them of the direction of the source. Its intelligent design allows it to be configured to best provide protection within the environment of almost any work situation. It is the first of its kind.

Compass™ is engineered to attach easily to the underside brim of any standard hard hat. Positioned within the user’s peripherals, it provides ease of use and functionality. This strategic placement allows it to provide a 360° detection area around the user. Once a threat is detected, Compass™ immediately provides the user with both audible and visual notifications.

  • Light weight, easy-to-use design
  • A 6th sense for employees around electricity
  • Proximity and directional alerts
  • Adjustable sensitivity settings
  • Rechargeable battery
  • Durable and water-resistant
  • Built-in self-test feature


  • Detects Electric and Magnetic Fields radiating from sources 360° around the user.


  • Proximity Alerts are provided for both Voltage and Current detection long before coming in contact with a threat.


  • After providing the initial proximity alerts, Compass™ then shows the approximate direction of the energized conductor.
