Klein Tools has come out with two new electronic AC/DC voltage testers designed to easily check, verify or troubleshoot common electrical residential, multi-family or small commercial electrical wiring devices and construction.

Both models include four levels of voltage testing and augment Klein’s existing Test and Measurement product line.

Klein’s new ET40 tester identifies and distinguishes between AC voltages from 12V to 40V or DC voltages from 1.5V to 17-24V. The tool Indicates polarity when measuring DC voltages and has built-in test lead holders on sides of tester.

The ET40 has a safety rating of CATIII 250V, Class 2, has double insulation and powers off automatically after two minutes of non-use to conserve battery life. The tool uses 2 x AAA batteries (included with the tester) and a low battery indicator with an easily accessible battery compartment.

The company’s new ET45 tester tests AC voltages from 24V to 240V AC and DC voltages from 32V to 330V. It includes a built-in test lead holder on the back of the tool that holds the leads in two positions to enable testing of tamper-resistant US-style outlets, as well as offering convenient storage. The ET45 has a safety Rating of CATIII 350V, Class 2 and also features double insulation. Batteries not required for the ET45, as the tester is powered by the applied voltage.

Both new Voltage Testers feature four useful AC/DC testing levels aligned with commonly used residential voltages, bright LEDs illuminate to indicate the level of voltage detected, and a pocket clip to secure tester to pocket for reliable everyday carrying.

The tools feature industrial design intended to withstand harsh job-site demands with a 9.9-foot (3 m) drop rating and IP41 dust- and water-resistance.

“Klein Tools’ new Electronic Voltage Testers offer simple, easy-to-use solutions for testing and troubleshooting AC/DC voltage,” says Sean O’Flaherty, director product management at Klein Tools. “Both the ET40 and ET45 feature four commonly used voltage levels for convenient testing of residential wiring systems, such as outlets, light fixtures, doorbells, batteries and more.”
