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 AV 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 AV voltage (within the range of 200~1000v AC).

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