Example of Electrical Testers and Meters:


  • Inductive Voltage Tester: Check AC or DC Voltage, 120v to 600v range..
  • Multi-Function Digital Meter: All in one analog amperage and voltage meter.
  • Non-Contact Voltage Tester: Quick test a circuit for voltage.
  • Plug-In Circuit Analyzer: Receptacle outlet tester.
  • Analog Tester, OHM Resistance Meter: Check AC or DC voltage and resistance.

Inductive Voltage Tester

For testing voltage of wiring and devices 120 to 600 Volts AC DC. I use this type of tester the most, because it produces a quick accurate reading where I can feel the induction coil and see the neon light display.

Multi-Function Digital Meter

Clamp-On Amperage Reading, Voltage and Continuity. This is a great all in one meter used for clamp-on amperage readings or a set of test leads for checking voltage or ohms and continuity.

Non-Contact Voltage Tester

The Non-Conductive Probe Senses Voltage. Non-conductive testers are very handy but are not totally accurate because some may produce false readings so they should not be 100% relied on.

Plug-In Circuit Analyzer

3-Light Display Detects the Wiring Configuration. Plug in circuit analyzers are great but they too are not totally accurate and may produce false readings for boot-legged grounds and neutrals and even reverse polarity.

Analog Tester, OHM Resistance Meter

Non-Conductive Probe Senses Voltage. The good old sweep-needle analog tester has been my buddy for a long time for testing voltage and ohms or continuity for AC and DC circuits.
