Klein Tools Introduces A Full Range Non-Contact Voltage Tester with Flashlight

Tests 12 – 1000V AC and includes independent, bright flashlight

May 5, 2015 (Lincolnshire, IL) - Klein Tools (http://www.kleintools.com), for professionals since 1857, expands its "Tough Meter" Test & Measurement product line with the durable NCVT-3 Non-Contact Voltage Tester with Flashlight. It identifies AC voltage in cables, cords, circuit breakers, outlets, wires, doorbells, thermostats, low voltage lighting systems, irrigation systems, etc.


The rugged NCVT-3 non-contact voltage tester detects the full range of 12 - 1000V AC to accommodate both low and standard voltage environments. An integrated flashlight works independent of the tester and is practical enough to use as a standalone tool. By incorporating Klein's "tough meter" standards of dustproof, waterproof, CAT IV 1000V safety rating and drop protection of up to 6.6 ft. (2m), this tool is suitable for any jobsite.
