Emerson Updates the Greenlee® Non-Contact Voltage Detectors Lineup

Greenlee GT13 and TR13 were redesigned with ergonomics and convenience in mind

ROCKFORD, Ill. (January 17, 2020) – Professionals searching for a reliable voltage detection solution have two new Greenlee options — the newly redesigned GT13 and TR13 non-contact voltage detectors. The new testers identify the presence of voltage from 50 volts to 1,000 volts AC. The redesigned GT13 and TR13 are now equipped with a more ergonomic grip and button location, along with a bright LED flashlight for use in dark work areas.

TR13 is the only non-contact voltage detector equipped with a patented dual-tip design to easily open the protective shutters on tamper-resistant and conventional receptacles to test for the presence of AC voltage. The tool is compatible with 15A and 20A, 120-volt outlets.

“It is imperative that the professional verifies the absence of power before performing any work,” said Youssef Takhchi, product manager – test and measurement for Greenlee, Emerson. “These non-contact voltage detectors offer an easy to use and dependable option to perform those tests.”

To ensure integrity of the unit, both GT13 and TR13 models are equipped with a patented automatic self-test. Every two seconds, the intelligent design checks all component circuitry assuring the tool is ready to detect AC voltage. To conserve battery life the testers will automatically turn off after five minutes.

The Greenlee GT13 and TR13 can be used to detect voltage in outlets, lighting fixtures, circuit breakers, wires and cables, or to find a break in a wire.  Professionals interested in the new GT13 and TR13 can visit to learn more information.
