Test Probes & Leads
Test probes and test leads are accessories that are used with many different types of electrical testing equipment and meters. They are typically composed of a flexible cable with two connections: the lead plugs into the tester, the probe connects to the device under test. The cable transmits signals to and from the test equipment, which may take measurements or elicit responses from the device under test. Test probes come in a variety of shapes, and are often designed for particular applications. Test leads are used in electronics research and development, maintenance and troubleshooting of electrical equipment, automotive repair, commercial and residential electrical installation, among other environments.
