    With ISOBUS getting more and more common on newer kit, going forward I reckon it would be really useful, and not too complex, for the manufacturers of these high-voltage power detectors to make them ISOBUS compatible.

    This would afford the operator much better integration into machinery, pre-empting any HV proximity issues before they are critical rather than just flashing a warning light or sounding a buzzer.

    I'll toss it out there, maybe they are reading this stuff...
