Electrical kit

The TK-30IR electrical kit includes three core products: the DM-20 manual ranging multimeter, the GT-15 non-contact voltage detector, and the GT-10GFI circuit tester. The DM-20 measures current of small electronic circuits and checks 9V batteries. It also measures AC/DC voltage, DC amperage, and resistance. The GT-15 is used to troubleshoot 120VAC grounded outlets. It features a light sequence that indicates correct or incorrect wiring. The GT-10GFI is used to detect voltage in outlets, lighting fixtures, circuit breakers, wires and cables, or to find a break in a wire. It provides non-contact voltage detection and activates its bright LED audible alarm if voltage is present.
