Illumagear, the creators of the first-ever 360° hardhat headlamp, has quietly just announced another revolutionary device coming soon to protect contractors and linemen from electrical hazards. Their brand new Sixth Sense Voltage, Current, and Fall Detection Device sends visible and audible alerts when it detects the presence of a potentially dangerous electrical voltage and current, making it an incredibly reliable tool for people who work around electricity often.

Heighten Your Senses

The new Sixth Sense Voltage and Current Detector connects to any standard hard hat to sense electricity exposure long before you can typically identify the presence of it. It provides both visible and audible alerts to immediately notify you and your team about safety hazards before an accident happens. The device can also connect directly to one of Illumagear‘s HALO SL Headlamps to use both at the same time, or it can be clipped to any standard hard hat.

Through the Illumagear app, you can control your settings and notification preferences for you and your team. The Bluetooth mesh network, when in crew mode, also alerts all crew members of any electrical hazards that were triggered by the Sixth Sense. The device sends emergency fall notifications through text when connected to the app to notify the entire crew if someone falls. This is a great way to keep your whole crew connected and make sure that everyone on your team can easily be notified if any hazards are present for an added level of safety. The sensitivity settings can be easily adjusted as well based on your needs. If you’re in a high-risk area and need super precise current and voltage detection, simply adjust the sensitivity higher, or you can lower it in low-risk situations.

The Sixth Sense device has a 74-hour battery life and can quickly fully recharge in under 1 hour. It also trickle charges when connected to a Halo SL to extend the battery life even further. The device is IP67 rated water resistant for added durability in wet or rainy environments, and it comes with a port to easily connect it to a HALO headlamp as well as a hard hat clip and charger.
