Open-Jaw Testers Ease Electrical Troubleshooting

FLIR Systems’ VT8-600 and VT8-1000 voltage, continuity, and current testers target those who troubleshoot and verify electrical installations or systems within commercial and light industrial facilities. The meters are compact enough to reach into cramped openings or crowded cabinets (51-mm in width), while providing an open-jaw design for current measurements and large-diameter cables (up to 15.5-mm in diameter).


The FLIR VT8-600 is rated for 600V and 100A applications in residential and commercial job sites. For commercial and industrial jobs, the FLIR VT8-1000 extends ranges to 1 kV and 200A. The ergonomic meters are said to be easy to use with a high-visibility jumbo display and an offset thumb-selector dial optimized for gloved, one-hand operation.
