FLIR Systems has released its FLIR VT8-600 and VT8-1000 voltage, continuity, and current testers. The testers troubleshoot and verify electrical installations or systems within commercial and light industrial facilities. The company says the electrical meters are compact enough to reach into cramped openings or crowded cabinets (51-millimeter width), while providing an open-jaw design for current measurements and large-diameter cables (up to 15.5-millimeter diameter).
The FLIR VT8-600 is rated for 600 V and 100 A applications in residential and commercial job sites. For commercial and industrial jobs, the FLIR VT8-1000 extends ranges to 1000 V and 200 A. The testers include an integrated LED work light, and a non-contact voltage detector for safety sweeps finds live circuit. Test-lead holders stow test leads when not in use. Comprehensive test functions are complemented by True RMS accuracy and high-resolution readings.
