Non-Contact Voltage Detector Ensures User Safety

FLIR Systems’ FLIR VP40 non-contact voltage detector is designed for field-troubleshooting and verification of residential, commercial, and industrial electrical installations in North America. As per its maker, the VP40 makes it easy to quickly troubleshoot live and neutral wiring to ensure a safe job site.


Sporting a built-in flashlight and CAT IV safety rating, the pen-sized tester quickly identifies the presence of AC voltage without contacting wires, even in the latest safety outlets. It simplifies wire identification by sorting and tracing neutral and live wires in sockets and junction boxes.
