    Tester probes for use with Wago's

    Hello All, Just wondering which types of tester probes you all use for testing on Wago connectors? The probes on my MFT and multimeter do not fit through the small hole incorporated in the connector for testing. I am using a very fine needle type probe at the moment but would prefer something...

    megger probes wont fit in to kewtech socket tester?

    Evening all.. Just got my brand new megger and am having a play. The megger probes dont fit into my socket tester (Kewteck Kewcheck), or rather they are too short so don't reach the metal part in the tester.

    Why Am I Having Problems Detecting Current At Wall Outlet With Gs38 Probe?

    Hi, I have purchased a Kewtech KT1780 Voltage Tester. But I can't get it to do a double pole test. The instructions show the user inserting the probes into the wall outlet. But I don't get any indication when I put the probes into the wall outlet. Is it because the probes are too small? I...

    Fluke T5 or T150?

    Evening all.. I will be buying one of the above but am struggling to choose between them both. I am 70% for the T150 and 30% for the T5. Lots of people seem to rate the T5. What I particularly like about the T150 is that the buttons are on the probe so you only need 2 hands for all actions...

    Voltage Detector Compliant?

    I had this bought for me for Christmas. The description says its made by Metrel and is GS38 compliant. When I received it, it doesn't says Metrel anywhere on the product or the box. The probes have around 15mm exposed, when you unscrew the covers there is slightly less exposed, possible...

    Bang! Large flash / bang at voltmeter tips.

    Hi all, Just had quite a fright & must say I'm pretty annoyed with myself. I've just tested the ends of a wire to check if it was live (using a fluke voltmeter) and had a massive flash and bang at the points of the probes). I'm annoyed because I should have isolated the circuit and...

    What voltage tester do you use?

    I currently own a Fluke T3 which I love as a basic voltage indication device. I also own a couple of T5-1000 which I still like but am more cautious of them as they have the dial which I worry can get muck/dust in and fail so they usually only get used in a cleaner enviroment or for when I am...
