FLUKE Australia has announced the Meterman VT201 non-contact ac voltage detector with audible alarm, a new tester for facilities maintenance, electrical and home improvement markets.
The tester offers the ability and convenience of confirming if an ac circuit is active. It can be used to detect live cables behind walls and in conduits, power points and light switchers, basically anywhere there is ac voltage.
The VT201 provides both the home user and the professional an inexpensive tool for detecting the presence of ac voltages from 70V to 440V.
Both a visual and an audio alarm indicate when voltage is detected.
The VT201 emits a loud audible chirping which changes pitch in relation to the proximity of voltage, whilst at the same time a bright, flashing LED display also indicates presence.
