ALTRONICS has released a handy ac non contact tester for technicians and installers.
It detects live ac voltages from 100V to 600V (50-60Hz) and allows detection of live wires without contact.
The tester illuminates bright red whenever ac is detected at a power point, sheathed or bare ended cable. This provides an instant indication of lethal ac voltages.
It is also equipped with a LED flash light for lighting the way in rooftops or wall cavities.
The device is an essential pocket test tool for the electrical tradesperson, fitter, technician or anyone operating with ac power sources.
