Amprobe INSP-3 Wiring Inspection Tester.
All Amprobe tools, including the Amprobe INSP-3 Wiring Inspection Tester, are rigorously tested for safety, accuracy, reliability, and ruggedness in our state-of-the-art test lab. In addition, Amprobe products that measure electricity are listed by a 3rd party safety lab, either UL or CSA. This system assures that Amprobe products meet or exceed safety regulations and will perform in a tough, professional environment for many years to come.
Amprobe INSP-3 Wiring Inspection Tester
Maintain Electrical System Safety and Performance
The rugged Amprobe INSP-3 Wiring Inspector Circuit Tester verifies in seconds whether a building’s wiring (including voltage drop under load) complies with electrical code. This saves time and money by eliminating guess work. The large display shows all relevant test data so you can quickly identify issues with splices, connections, and conductor quality that are crucial to safety and performance, without scrolling or switching screens. Select a 10, 15, or 20 amp load on the electricity tester then read the results. A flashing screen clearly indicates incorrect wiring or failures. This wire tester won’t trip circuit breakers or blow fuses during the test.
- In case GFCI/AFCI breaker does not automatically trip after pressing and releasing GFCI/AFCI Test button, push the 'Test' button on the breaker under test. The breaker must trip. If it does not – do not use the breaker – consult an electrician.
No hassle of scrolling or switching between screens
Presents relevant test data (voltage, voltage drop, hot and neutral voltage drop, voltage with load, ground impedance) on a single large display to save operator time.
Electrical Code Recommendations
The INSP-3 verifies that wiring tested for load carrying ability meets electrical code recommendations for voltage drop under load.

They are replacing it, but after almost a month, I still don't have my replacement. 8 days ago, I got what I though was my replacement, but it turned out they shipped me the wrong product. Now I'm still waiting. I would rank their customer service as low. They should have over nighted it to me after the shipping error.
Would not buy again. Will not recommend to other inspectors.
On another point, the unit is easiest to use on three-wire outlets, i.e., outlets with ground pins. But it will give useful measurements, such as voltage drop under load, on two-wire outlets. If you want the full range of information for a two wire circuit you can make that happen with a little fooling around. You just need to provide a ground reference from some other circuit. I put together a rig that converts a three-wire female plug to a two-wire male plug and separates the ground wire. By plugging the INSP-3 into the three-wire female plug and the two-wire male plug into the two-wire outlet, then connecting that ground wire to the ground on some other three wire outlet in the house, everything works.
I'm impressed with the amount of details this testing device offers by simply plugging into any household 110 AC volt outlet. From finding ground problems to poor connections to high resistance, meaning lighter wiring than the circuit is rated for or possibly another issue. This is a must have tool for any home inspection engineer because it offers a lot of information with little work involvement. Finding the source of the problem might take more time but this tool will make you aware of the issue. Nothing is perfect but I'm pleased with what this tool offers, if you're looking to buy an older home invest in this before you buy, it may save thousands of dollars or help prevent a short that may possibly lead to a fire.
NOTE: Some have said they have problems tripping GFI outlets when using this testing device, you first must push and hold the GFIC Test button while plugging into a GFIC outlet, when the screen lights up release the GFIC button. You'll notice on the bottom of the display a flashing request to push the "GFIC" button to test the outlet. Remember the GFIC will trip on most GFIC outlets if you don't hold the GFIC button. Holding the button interrupts normal pulses sent to test wiring.
Easy fix, but I'm sure it voids the warranty. Take a pair of wire strippers or tweezers and break the middle part of the fuse (remove all you can from both ends of the fuse). I used a cut paper clip long enough to solder to each end of the old fuse on top. It worked perfect once the fuse was bypassed.
Completed one good circuit test. Went to the next one and received "Device Failed" message in the window. Just like all prior units. I will be contacting Amprobe again. This time, I just hope to get some money back.

Unfortunately it suffers from an inherent design fault and fails for no reason and reads "internal fault" and Amprobe has no repair service so u are stuck replacing it every time
Unfortunately there is no other tester on the market with such good features at an affordable price
