There is no denying that lighting is crucial to any setting. When it comes to installing lighting, safety and capacity are always top priorities. With our selection of circuit testers, you can always be sure of the electric aspects of installing lighting solutions.
Here are a few things you need to know about voltage testers.
- This is a small usually hand-held device used to test for electrical currents. It is used on a myriad of products but is especially common when working with fixtures and wiring of fixtures.
- The typical operation is that you will attach the two insulated wires to the bulb housing and the system will indicate whether there is an electrical current flowing in the fixture. If the tester indicates there is no electrical current, you know you have an issue with the wiring of the fixture as opposed to a lamp issue. It can also be used to test outlets and receptacles for electrical currents.
- There are different types of electrical currents to consider as opposed to just assuming all currents are the same in regard to testing. For example, there are circuit conditions such as open, ground, open neutral, open hot, and reverse wiring you need to consider. It is important to make sure the voltage meters you are considering offer this function.
- Another great feature to look for is an option that detects leakage. When shopping voltage testers, an option that tells you when there is an underground leak in a current will save you a lot of time and money in the long run over a model that doesn't offer this important information during testing.
