Easy-to-Use Voltage/Continuity Testers Boost Troubleshooter Accuracy on Electrical Systems

Milwaukee Tool has expanded its Test & Measurement portfolio with two new Auto Voltage/Continuity Testers. Combining the simplicity of a traditional voltage/continuity tester with the digital read-out capabilities of higher-functionality meters, they let users accurately troubleshoot common electrical issues with ease in increasingly diverse electrical systems.
According to the manufacturer, while traditional testers only indicate broad voltage ranges that mask electrical issues like voltage drops, its new Auto Voltage/Continuity Testers deliver measurements down to the decimal, and display them on easy-to-read LCD screens. With their built-in intelligence, the devices automatically determine whether to test for voltage or continuity and also identify AC or DC Voltage, thus providing more information than a single test can supply.
Features include built-in LED work lights for low-lit areas and test-lead holders to store the probes when the job is done. Both units are compatible with common threaded carrying and mounting accessories like belt clips and magnets.
The new units will be available in August 2014.
