The company’s new 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.

Klein Tools’ ET250 voltage and continuity tester incorporates an LCD display, measures AC/DC voltage up to 600V and can also test GFCI protected circuits.

With the ET60, no battery is required, as the device is powered by the applied voltage. The device features standard replaceable test leads with integrated test-lead holders on back position to test leads appropriately for insertion into U.S. electrical outlets. The meter is water and dust resistant and can withstand drops up to 9.8 feet. It is rated CAT IV 600V for safety with a solid-state, low-impedance design.

The ET250 also measures voltage up to 600V but adds GFCI circuit testing capability, while also using standard replaceable test leads for convenience. The device features a backlit LCD display for precise readings, and as with the ET60, its integrated test-lead holders on back position test leads appropriately for insertion into U.S. electrical outlets. Also offering an integrated flashlight and backlit display for use in dimly-lit areas, the device automatically powers on and selects the correct measurement mode when a voltage or continuity measurement is attempted.

As with the ET60, the ET250 is water and dust-resistant, can withstand drops up to 9.8 feet, and is rated CAT IV 600V for safety, with a solid-state design.

“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.”
