My old trusted Robin OM70 MM has developed a fault.
Reading AC&DC v the needle is going across to max on any test. other functions are working.
I spend less time in the UK need to line this up on my next visit in advance of for a service place and unable to find anything online, any help...
I am just starting out, and acquired an old Robin KTS 1620 Multifunction tester to practice. It has a blown fuse soldered to the mainboard and labelled F2.
I have not been able find a wiring schematic for the device, there are no visible values shown on the remanants of the fuse. I just wanted...
I've just purchased a Fluke 1654B Mft, and on further inspection I've realized it has been supplied with fused Robin test leads (which after some research is standard for older versions of 1654b, i think????) so not as bothered as i first was. I'm wondering if these leads are still...

I've recently went self-employed and I'm on the hunt for cheapish test equipment (for domestic use)? I don't want to be spending a fortune, as I will only be using it occasionally.
I would even consider buying second hand, but I thought I would ask for a bit of advice, thank you!
Anyone got any recommendations on what replacement leads I should get? The ones I'm using at the moment is the old robin ones and the croc clips are pants.
Wished I'd of got a megger but I've used a fluke since college. When I get enough cash together think I'll invest in one.
Hi guys, what would cause an RCD to trip when carrying out a Zs test, it is a lighting circuit in a new build house and I have it on the "no trip" setting and it still trips the RCD, the RCD itself passed the RCD tests and the IR is 800Mohms so that's fine, I even even replaced the RCD but the...
All electricians rejoice! Fluke group appear to have been listening to comments on forums like ours, lamenting the demise of the Robin testers. Robin testers are back on the market, new design testers marketed under the Robin/Amprobe banner. Lets hope this just the start of the changes...
Hey all. Hope everyone is enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend. Weather here is rubbish but hey ho.
Anyway, I have a Megger MFT 1553. Brilliant bit of kit in my mind and to accompany it I have the Kewtech Lightmate BC adaptor for doing Zs test at end of line. This saves time and means you don’t...
Went to the robin site Welcome to Robin Electronics looking for specs on the KTS 1610 that i can pick up fairly cheap, seems to direct you to a fluke site promoting their testers.
Strange - or have I been drinking too much? :D
Alphatek 7040 multi function meter in the box with manual and rubber holster. A couple of years old but was only fired up to try it when bought and put back in the box. I went into retirement mode and never used it again. From memory it was around £125.00 so I suppose around £30.00 would be a...
