    It would be momentary in DC, but this is AC, so the truck would be changing from positively to negatively charged 60 times each second, so a little current would be flowing in and out all the...

    Well in order to measure anything there needs to be a power exchange somewhere. That means I*I*R or V*I or V*V/R. But you need to pass some current so you need a connection. [/QUOTE]

    But, you had some serious health issues. I'm talking about dementia, which often occurs in otherwise healthy people. Oddly enough, soon after my last post, I picked up the Atlanta Journal which has...

    Thanks steve. All I was really interested in was whether the thing would work conceptually. Not so much all the alternatives solutions.

    If it cost $100 and required no maintenanace and it might save a life it would be worth it. But apparently your sensibility is the one that prevails.

    But I didn't take bilby's analogy as mockery....

    Bilby that was a very good and thorough answer to remez's question. The main point for me is the part I've quoted here. It's the dearth of corraborating evidence about this resurrection idea that...

    From what I've witnessed in my own yard there's very little supervision of what's going on around the truck itself. And they might have training for the equipment operators but there's often several...

    Thanks for the advice. I agree that if the worker is already touching the truck when it contacts the power line an alarm is useless. But this seems to be a case where the truck was already live...
