Electrical test equipment: Milwaukee Tool continues to expand their test and measurement offering with the addition of two new electrical testers. Combining the simplicity of a traditional voltage/continuity tester with the digital read-out capabilities of a higher functionality meter, the new units allow users to properly troubleshoot common electrical issues with ease, even as electrical systems become more diverse.

“In most routine tests, users do not have any background with the work done by previous contractors, and before anything else, need to simply understand voltage measurements, if wires are connected properly, and if current is flowing through a circuit freely,” says Corey Dickert, Director of Marketing, Product Management for Milwaukee Tool. “With advanced features for this category, the Milwaukee Auto Voltage/Continuity Testers provide maximum value for any Apprentice or Journeymen Electrician looking for the most accurate and simple way to quickly test outlets, switches, and breaker panels.”

For accurate troubleshooting, the new units measure voltage, continuity and resistance with great precision. While traditional testers only indicate broad voltage ranges that mask electrical issues like voltage drops, the Milwaukee units deliver measurements down to the decimal, and display them on an easy to read LCD screen. With built-in intelligence, the new Milwaukee units automatically determine whether to test for voltage or continuity, and also identify AC or DC voltage to provide users with more valuable information in a single test.

Complete with a built-in LED work light for low-lit areas, and test lead holders to conveniently store the probes for when the job is done, both Milwaukee units are compatible with common threaded carrying and mounting accessories like belt clips and magnets. The easiest to use in their class, the new Auto Voltage/Continuity Testers confirm Milwaukee’s commitment to provide innovative solutions to the electrical trades that will increase productivity. The new units will be available in August of 2014.
