The V Watch Detector unit is designed to detect proximity of high voltage cables
and structures. The system gives out three tones which identify to the user just
how close they are to live equipment. The first audible warning is a slow intermittent
beep, this activates approximately 9ft from the live conductors. The second is a
quick intermittent beep which tells the wearer that they are entering an unsafe proximity,
this will normally trigger at 6ft. The last of the audible warnings is a permanent
tone which tells the wearer they are in a danger zone and should not proceed any
These audible warnings are also accompanied by bright yellow flashing lights on the
front of the device. This is to ensure that even in a noisy environment the device
can still be noticed.
Catenary King is proud to announce it will be starting its home learning course
on the 1st of August. We have listened to all the requests from our readers and clients
to provide a portal where everyone can learn and develop their knowledge of rail
catenary systems. The home learning courses which have been put together by some
industry experts from three different countries is the first of its kind and allows
people to increase their underpinning knowledge in their own time and at their own
The course content is based on generic principals of electrification systems both
mechanical and electrical. The courses are designed for all levels of learning, from
someone who knows nothing of catenary systems to those who have many years experience.
Even the experienced people sometimes have weaknesses in knowledge. Not because they
are have failings, but often because they haven’t had exposure to certain elements.

The Rail Electrification and Catenary industry is growing at an unprecedented
rate within the global rail sector. Governments are investing huge sums of money
in infrastructure in an effort to combat the environmental impact of global warming
and to make our towns and cities greener as a result.
This has placed great demand on the electrification supply chain, with shortages
of skilled, well trained qualified staff. Whilst the drive to innovate and continually
improve on new systems is certainly welcomed and appreciated within the industry,
a lack of knowledge transfer and training has created a void within the resource.
The UK, U.S. and Australian governments have already committed to billion dollar
electrification investment strategies, forging a clearly greener path, and whetting
the appetite of the international market. We anticipate global demand for Catenary
products and services will increase significantly over the next 5 to 10 years, and
our vision is to support that demand through our global network of highly committed,
customer oriented rail partners.
