Magnetic Adapters from Multi-Contact for Fast, Safe Connection of Test Leads
Press release date: January 12, 2009
A range of magnetic adapters for the fast, safe attachment of test leads onto screw heads has been introduced by Multi-Contact. Designed for applications where clamping is not possible, the adapter tip consists of a powerful bar magnet sandwiched between two steel poles to provide strong adhesion.
The slightly concave shape of the magnetic tip ensures good contact, even on dome screw heads.
Two versions are available, in a range of colours, with 7 or 11 mm diameter magnets. Both have a rigid insulated socket for push fitting onto a standard 4mm diameter spring-loaded plug with rigid insulating sleeve. They are rated at 1000V CATIII and 1000V CATIV respectively.
These adapters are particularly suitable for attachment to busbar fixings and relay terminals when testing small electrical distribution systems.
