    Where to get spare megger probes?

    Bloody specific fitting megger test leads! I've lost 2 of my megger probes now. I have plenty of crocodile clips and the long, thin, bendy probe. Does anyone know where I can just buy the probes, rather than the full set (which includes Croc clips and bendy probe)? Happy to pay if anyone has...

    Bought a multimeter and the cables provided won't attach

    The ends of the cables are completely sealed and there is nothing in the instructures that suggests I have to manually cut the plastic ends off to expose the metal pins inside but I can't understand how else I'm supposed to use them with this or any other multimeter. Is this a thing with probe...

    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. Does anyone know if there is a socket tester that they do fit, or are there different...

    Silly question GS38 probes and dead testing

    Ok. Safe isolation at DB is quite easy pushing against solid fixed terminals but when you are checking a loose hanging wire how the hell do juggle a voltage tester with spring loaded sheaths in one hand? What do you guys use and does any of the approved kit come with croc clips?

    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...

    Metrel MI3000 Easi Plus MFT Standard Test Probes GS38?

    Here goes - Post number 2. First one wasn't too bad (apart from a few jokes about Diversity being a dance act and Susan Boyle (anyway I won't go on)). I have a Metrel MI3000 Easi Plus MFT. The probes look GS38 compliant except they have no inline fuses in the body. GS38 says "should have...

    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...

    Where to buy test probes for Fluke 1651?

    I've lost the green probe end to one of my leads of my Fluke multi tester 1651. I've found sites that offer the whole set of leads for £60 but just want the replace the probe end! Any ideas? Being green isn't such an issue (a little electrical tape could denote its purpose). Thanks

    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...
