FLIR Systems, Inc. (Wilsonville, OR) has announced the FLIR VT8-600 and VT8-1000 voltage, continuity and current testers for electricians and service technicians who troubleshoot and verify electrical installations or systems within commercial and light industrial facilities. These ruggedized electrical meters are compact enough to reach into cramped openings or crowded cabinets (51-millimeter width), while providing an open-jaw design for current measurements and large-diameter cables (up to 15.5-millimeter diameter). The FLIR VT8-600 is rated for 600 V and 100 A applications in residential and commercial job sites. For commercial and industrial jobs, the FLIR VT8-1000 extends ranges to 1000 V and 200 A. Designed for trouble-free and reliable operation, the ergonomic meters are easy to use with a high-visibility jumbo display and an offset thumb-selector dial optimized for gloved, one-hand operation.
Multi-functional capabilities include:
- An integrated LED work light that illuminates poorly lit job sites.
- A non-contact voltage detector for safety sweeps that finds live circuits quickly.
- Integrated test-lead holders that easily stow test leads when not in use.
- Comprehensive test functions that are complemented by True RMS accuracy and high-resolution readings.
