These AC/DC Voltage Detectors from Santronics are ideal for just about any application. Simply touch the tic tracer's tip to a terminal strip, outlet, or supply cord, and when the tip glows red, you know that voltage is present. Their compact design makes them easy to transport and keeps them readily available for use on a jobsite. Each tic tester gives you visual or audio indications of power detection, and needs no contact with conductors to be activated.

  • Compact “pen-sized” design for easy transport and accessibility
  • Constructed of non-conductive polycarbonate for additional safety
  • Covered by one or more of the following patents 6,828,767 & 5,103,165
  • UL 1436
  • Made in the USA

 

Ideal for use in:

Operating Principle This instrument senses the electrical field produced by AC voltage through insulation, without touching the conductor. A constant bright red glow with alternating sound will indicate the presence of AC voltage This instrument senses an electrical field produced by AC voltage, through insulation and without touching the conductor. A constant bright red glow at the tip of the sensor will indicate the presence of voltage. This instrument senses the electrical field produced by AC voltage through insulation, without touching the conductor. A constant bright red glow will indicate the presence of AC voltage. This instrument senses the electrical field produced by DC Voltage when touching the conductor. When DC Voltage is detected the tip will glow red and it will emit a loud buzzing sound

    Comments about Santronics 3000 Ultimate AC Sensor 50-1000VAC:

    Good tester to check for voltage. I like the way the tip lights when voltage is present. I also like the audible alarm but it is not loud enough. Sometimes you need to plug it in a receptacle and go to find the circuit to turn it off. The audible alarm saves trips back and forth but this one is not loud enough if the panel is very far away. Otherwise it's a good little tester.
