The PE editorial team look back at some of the products that drew the most interest from our readers over the past 12 months.
Klein Tools – NCVT-3 Non-Contact Voltage Tester
Designed to identify AC voltage in a wide range of applications, the rugged NCVT-3 detects the full range of 12-1000V AC to accommodate both low and standard voltage environments. It incorporates a number of safety features including a simultaneous visual and audible voltage indicator which makes it suitable for a wide variety of installation environments. The visual voltage indicator utilises ﬁve bright LEDs for easy interpretation and viewing of voltage strength while the audible voltage indicator beeps at a greater frequency the higher the voltage or the closer it gets to the voltage source. It also features an integrated torch which works independently of the tester and can be used as a standalone tool.
This new addition to the range lives up to the Tough Meters standard with an IP67 rating which ensures that it is fully dust and waterproof whatever the conditions; a CAT IV 1000V safety rating as standard and drop protection of up to 6.6ft (2m).
