June 9, 2017 (Lincolnshire, Ill.) – Klein Tools (www.kleintools.com), for professionals since 1857, introduces two new voltage testers that use standard replaceable test leads for added convenience. The ET60 voltage tester requires no batteries as it measures AC/DC voltage up to 600V in electrical circuits, outlets, light fixtures and anywhere else AC/DC voltage testing is required. The ET250 voltage and continuity tester incorporates an LCD display, measures AC/DC voltage up to 600V and can test GFCI protected circuits. Both voltage testers have a tough meter design and are rated CAT IV 600V for safety.

“We know that many electricians personally own dedicated voltage testers and our research found that more than half of these customers express a preference for digital LCD displays on their testers,” says Sean O’Flaherty, director of product management at Klein Tools. “Knowing this, we decided to enhance our voltage tester line by delivering these new durable, easy-to-read voltage testers that use standard replaceable multimeter test leads instead of the more commonly used dedicated fixed cord sets.”
