229-2 Leakage Current Tester

AC Current Leakage Tester

Small leakage currents can be dangerous! And even when they're not, current above the "threshold of perception" in appliances, motors and other equipment can cause a violent reaction from fear—resulting in serious physical injury. For service, lab, production or industry, the Model 229-2 makes it easy to determine product conformance to standards.

CAUTION! Leakage current may increase with use and aging of the appliance. Check appliances periodically for safety.
