Press release date: May 20, 2003
SYCAMORE, IL, May 20, 2003 - IDEAL INDUSTRIES, Inc., the fastest growing company in the test and measurement market, today introduced its new Vol-Test XL, the first and only solenoid voltage tester with a UL-CAT III-600V safety rating.
Built for professional electricians and maintenance personnel, the tester enables the user to immediately detect the presence or absence of voltage before they begin working on a circuit. The Vol-Test's indicating arm provides visual indication of the voltage level while the tester's large, easy-to-read voltage indicator scale offers redundancy plus enables the electrician to determine if the voltage is AC or DC. The solenoid itself vibrates for additional warning to the presence of voltage.
The Vol-Test XL has a wide testing range (80-600V AC/DC), so it is versatile enough to be employed in residential, commercial or industrial applications.
Like all IDEAL testers, the Vol-Test XL is built tough to withstand the day-to-day knocks a tester must endure. Its case is ultrasonically welded and o-ring sealed to keep out dust, dirt and moisture. It is backed by a five-year warranty.
