Green Gadget: Save Time & Money Troubleshooting Your Fluorescent Lighting Systems
EP Editorial Staff | July 16, 2012
According to Milwaukee Tool, its recently introduced Milwaukee® Fluorescent Lighting Tester lets electricians and facility maintenance technicians troubleshoot an entire building full of lights in half the time they’ve typically devoted to the task. Until now, the usual approach has been to “replace and hope” (i.e., change out a lamp or ballast and hope that fixes the problem). The innovative Fluorescent Lighting Tester, part of Milwaukee’s expanding Test and Measurement line, appears to be a real game-changer. With its 2-1/2 ft., fully retractable antenna, users can easily reach all lighting fixtures and, thus, change only those components that actual testing indicates are in need of replacement. Other features include a removable antenna adaptor to increase “flicker” response, audible and visual indicators for easy readings, a built-in LED work light to illuminate dark work spaces and a rugged, over-mold grip for increased durability.
