Title Automatic high-voltage circuit breaker
Original title Pribor-avtomat dlja otključenija vysokogo naprjaženija [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Oct. 1978, No.10, p.30-31. Illus.
Abstract A high-voltage detector worn around the wrist is described. When the hand approaches a conductor carrying a high-voltage current the alternating electromagnetic field of the conductor excites a capacitive detector. The signal is amplified and transmitted to a receiver on the switch board where it trips a circuit-breaking relay. The range of action is 15-20m. Electrical diagrams are shown.
