Electrical testers make technicians jobs easier

Electrical testers make technicians jobs easier
Two electrical testers - theT6-600 and T6-1000 - from Fluke are on sale at Farnell element14. They use a novel non-contact voltage sensing technique for fast, safe and reliable voltage measurements. The FieldSense technology used in the T6-600 and T6-1000 replaces the traditional test lead contact probe with an open fork construction in which the fork is slid over a conductor and detects the voltage level. Voltages up to 1000V AC can be sensed through the open fork without using test leads.
