Fluke Electrical Tester Comparison Chart

Fluke electrical tester

A handy Fluke – senses ac/dc, and indicates level.

Not to be confused with a multimeter, electrical testers are kind of different.  I guess if you’re super familiar with them or can use them just as well as a multimeter, they can be just as good.

Electrical testers seem to be more handy, more compact, and more rugged.  They don’t have all of the ultra technical features of the traditional meters though either.  I have a few electrical testers and I put them up near the bottom of my multimeter comparison chart page which you can see here if you’re so inclined ha ha.

This post is just going to be a Fluke electrical tester comparison chart basically.  Hopefully it is sortable like the other tables, I try my best.  Speaking of which, are there any columns or whatever you’d like me to add?  Something you’d like to see?

Again, electrical testers can be handy because you don’t have all of the technical mumbo jumbo to deal with.  You can simply plug these leads into an outlet, see you have 120 volts and move on.  Look, I’ve got probably what some would consider fancy meters.  But do I do anything really technical with them?  No.

Could I use an electrical tester to accomplish what I use meters for?  Yes.  And they are easier to use.  Convincing myself.  Think I’m going to bust mine out at work again.
