The Amprobe VP-440 Non-Contact VoltProbe is a non-contact voltage tester that detects alternating current (AC) voltage from a distance of 0.16" (4mm) for safe evaluation of cables, circuit breakers, wall sockets, junction boxes, and other electrical wiring. This average-sensing tester helps provide accurate readings when measuring linear loads with a current or voltage that has a sinusoidal waveform. The tester illuminates red in the presence of AC voltage and operates from 50 to 1000V. It is powered by two alkaline AAA batteries and meets European Standards (EN) 61010-031 Category III 1000V. The VP-440 is designed for use by electricians, electrical contractors, and auto mechanics.
|Power supply||AAA batteries (two, included)|
|AC voltage range||50 to 1000V|
|Weight (including batteries)||1.5oz./40g|
|Safety standard met||International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)/European Standards (EN) 61010-031 Cat III 1000V|
|Dimensions||5.8 x 0.8 inches / 147 x 20mm (H x W x D)|
H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
Electrical test meters report electrical circuit properties, such as voltage, resistance, capacitance, and continuity. Available in handheld or benchtop models, they detect electrical problems in equipment, wiring, and power supplies. A variety of probes, clamps, or leads connect the meter to a circuit or device. Single-function meters, such as battery testers and voltage testers, measure one property of a circuit; multimeters measure multiple properties. Electrical test meters display information either in analog form using a needle that moves on a calibrated scale, or in digital form using digits or a graphic representation on an LED screen. Meter choice includes the electrical properties to be measured and the anticipated range of results, and should have a rating that is higher than the maximum value of the anticipated range. An electrical test meter has multiple settings that correspond to potential ranges of values for the properties it can measure. A manual ranging meter requires the operator to flip through different settings until the correct range is reached. An autoranging meter cycles through range settings automatically until it reaches the correct range.
Amprobe manufactures electrical testing equipment for commercial, industrial, and home use. The company was founded in 1948 and is headquartered in Everett, WA.
Love this tester but pocket clip broke off almost the day first used seemed very stiffPublished 13 days ago by Del. Hollingsworth
I can not express how much I like this tool. I have 2 meters that are used daily but this is in my shirt pocket everyday. There is no ON OFF switch you have to mess with. USA made. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Dylan Mains
Works perfectly. I'm certainly not an electrician but very useful to have around to determine if a wire, outlet or anything else is "hot". Handy size fits in a pocket. Read morePublished 2 months ago by dogbone
Works great, but with all electrical equipment, safety is priority. Turn off the main breaker if you're not sure.Published 2 months ago by dan
This works very well and provides a nice level of safety in detecting live circuits.Published 5 months ago by Kindle Customer
