Electrical Meters and Testers

Electrical testers are devices used for checking or quantifying electrical conditions. To measure the levels of electrical energy, use an electrical meter. Elliott Electric Supply offers a variety of electrical meters and testers. This guide will discuss the different types sold as well as electrical accessories.

Digital Meters

AC or DC Clamp Meter

Clamp meter for wireless voltage tester

A clamp meter is an instrument which ″clamps″ around a live wire to measure its current. An AC clamp meter measures only the alternating current (AC), whereas a DC clamp meter can measure both the alternating current and the direct current (DC).

Digital Multimeter (DMM)

Digital multimeter to identify live lines

Digital multimeters are electrical instruments that measure quantities of voltage, current, and resistance. Typically this kind of device, such as the Fluke Digital Multimeter, shows these values on a display screen.

A digital multimeter is able to measure resistance via injecting current into the circuit, then measuring the voltage drop. This is done with Ohm's Law: V = I x R.

Voltage Meter

Voltage meter continuity tester for AC/DC current

A voltage meter, or voltmeter measures the AC or DC voltage drop between to probes, and displays the volt reading on display.

Digital Moisture Meter

Moisture meter detects moisture levels

Because water conducts electricity, a digital moisture meter is designed to measure moisture levels present in various materials. Use a moisture meter to safely detect the percentage of water to determine jobsite readiness, structural integrity, or resistivity and/or conductance.

Digital Light Meter

Digital light meter measures visible light in an area or room

A digital light meter is used to measure the amount of visible light present in a specific area. Designed with a measuring unit and separate meter, this device can measure light levels imperceptible to the human eye.

infrared thermometer

Probe thermometers measure temperature by touching a probe to the object. An infrared thermometer is a no contact thermometer that measures temperature by collecting infrared light emitted by the object into the thermometer and converting that infrared light into heat and a temperature reading.

Outlet Tester (Circuit Tester or Receptacle Tester)

Outlet circuit tester detects electrical currents

An outlet tester, circuit tester or receptacle tester, contains a 3‑prong power plug and three indicator lights; they detect whether wired electrical outlets or campsite supplies are correctly wired. Outlet testers work by comparing the amount of current moving from one end of a circuit conductor to the next.

Non-Contact Voltage Tester (NCV)

Non contact voltage tester pen

A non-contact volt electrical tester, sometimes referred to as a volt stick, detects voltage, without the use of probes. A non‑contact voltage tester senses even small amounts of current that are being capacitively coupled from the live circuit back to the tester. By holding a volt electrical tester up to a conductor, outlet, or supply cord, the user acts as the ground reference through Capacitive Coupling.

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter Tester (GFCI Outlet Tester)

GFCI tester measures connection to power source

A GFCI Tester measures an electrical current from one end of a power source to the next. If these currents are not the same, this indicates a current leakage and is dangerous. The main purpose of a GFCI tester is to reduce risk of electrical shock due to incorrectly‑wired GFCI electrical outlets.

3 Phase Motor Rotation Indicator Tester

3 Phase motor rotation tester for rotation direction

A 3 phase rotation indicator tester is designed to confirm rotational direction and identify leads in both an energized and disconnected polyphase motor. A non contact phase rotation meter can also identify the true phase sequence without touching the unit.

Continuity Tester

Continuity tester finds complete electric flow

A continuity tester verifies the complete flow path in certain devices. A continuity symbol denotes a common terminal on low-resistance devices. The electrical continuity test verifies signal path in single, 3-way, and 4-way switch terminals.

Insulation Tester

Insulation tesistance tester measures electrical resistance

An insulation tester, also known as an insulation resistance tester, identifies damaged insulation and electrical current leakage by measuring the resistance within electrical items with a high voltage, low current DC charge.

Fluorescent Light Tester

Fluorescent light tester measures lamp light

A fluorescent light tester is designed to quickly, easily, and accurately measure the output of fluorescent lamps and ballast.

Cable Tester

LAN networking cable tester

A cable tester is designed to test for open, short, miswire, split pair, or other networking issues with cables.

Additional Tools and Accessories

Circuit Breaker Finder

Digital circuit breaker finder tester

A circuit breaker finder is a battery-operated tool with two parts: a transmitter and a receiver. A circuit breaker finder serves only one purpose, though: to identify which circuit breaker serves a particular outlet or light fixture to which the transmitter is connected. A digital circuit breaker finder works much faster than a mechanical circuit breaker and results in better safety precautions.

Laser Level

Laser level tool for alignment on a flat surface

A laser level is a tool used for leveling and aligning different electrical applications. Laser levels have a constant red or green line which show horizontally or vertically on a surface and are used to ensure a straight, level reference point.

Combustible Gas Leak Detector

Gas leak detector measures levels of natural gas

A combustible gas leak detector is designed to measure levels of flammable gasses, such as propane, butane, natural gas, etc. By sensing electrodes in the air, a combustible gas detector can alert users when levels exceed the LEL (lower explosive limit).

Pressure Calibrator

Gas pressure calibrator tester

A pressure calibrator is used to determine and maintain the accuracy of pressure gauges. When tested at regular intervals, a pressure gauge calibrator ensures safe and continuous operation of pressure gauges.
