Extech Instruments Announces the Unique and Evolutionary Continuity Tester Pro
Exclusive Two-Part Tester features Single Person Remote or Local Continuity Testing and Wire/Cable Identification
Extech Instruments, a major supplier of test and measurement equipment for the industrial marketplace owned by FLIR Systems, Inc., announces its new CT20 Continuity Tester Pro. This extremely affordable test product features the unique capability for single person operation of wire and cable continuity checking and identification, eliminating the need for someone to be at both ends of the wires under test. The Continuity Tester Pro is the perfect tool for electricians, cable TV and audio systems installers, alarm technicians, HVAC installers, auto repair technicians, handymen and do-it-yourself homeowners.
The CT20 is a two part system consisting of the master Continuity Tester/Transmitter and a unique two lead, bi-color (red/green) LED Remote Probe. The master Continuity Tester/Transmitter is used for local continuity testing and remote wiring identification. Using the Remote Probe allows for single-person remote Continuity testing when identifying cables, verifying polarity or labeling long distance wire/cable runs where the other end of the wires or cables are in a completely different area out of sight and sound.
The Remote Probe features a bright pulsating bi-color (red/green) LED which is visible even in bright daylight areas. The Remote Probe's LED flashes green when wiring is properly identified and flashes red with wiring is reversed. The master Continuity Tester/Transmitter features bright flashing LEDs and a loud pulsating beeper which can be heard over high background noise. This combination of the two parts allows a single user to identify up to three (3) wires or cables at a time for correct labeling, with only one trip to the other end of the wire or cable location. Lightweight and pocket-sized, both parts of the Continuity Tester Pro feature alligator clips to enable them to hang from the cable(s) under test.
