Volt Stick 230Y

230v AC Non-contact Instant Voltage Tester

Volt Stick 230Y applications

The Volt Stick 230Y is the original - and the world's leading - 230v instant non-contact voltage tester.

This easy-to-operate, pen-sized voltage tester is designed for safe checking for the presence of an AC voltage - without the need to make any disconnections - for cables, power sockets, fuses, junction boxes, circuit breakers and more.

When the Volt Stick 230Y is presented in close proximity to a potential voltage source (ie. a cable, wire, socket, etc), the red LED indicator in the Volt Stick's tip will illuminate on detection of an AC voltage (within the range of 200~1000v AC).

The Volt Stick 230Y is effective for testing electrical connection points and insulated cables.

The product's trademark bright yellow tube makes it easy to spot in the tool box or if dropeed and it's pen-size and pocket clip makes it easy to store in clothing or tools belt, etc.
