Compact and Easy-to-Use

The Amprobe PY-1A Voltage Tester is compact and easy to use. Designed for the professional electrician and home user alike, this solidly built electrical tester will deliver years of trouble-free service. The bright series of neon lights indicates the detected AC voltage at 120, 240, 277, and 480V and DC voltage at 160, 330, 380V and 600V. Using the two integrated test leads, the unit automatically displays detected AC or DC voltage from receptacles, appliances, computers, wire cables, circuit breakers, junction boxes, and other electrical circuits. The test probes can be snapped into the back of the unit for convenient storage or for one-handed receptacle testing. The unit is designed for use on both energized and non-energized circuits and includes a test current of up to 3.5mA. It is powered by two alkaline AAA batteries (included) and meets European Standards (EN) 61010-1 Category III 600V. The PY-1A is designed for use by professional electricians, appliance technicians and home users.

    4Very good even at three times the price!
    By ReneB
    Works great, with better construction and handles more voltages (120-480v AC & 160-600v DC) than anything else I've seen at this price point. In fact, I'd be just as pleased with this tester if it were 3x the asking price here. What I particularly like is that it's easy to see the light indicating voltage even when working in a bright room. I also like that the probes can be stored clipped to the actual housing (these are not flimsy clips). I like this unit much nicer than the Sperry and Radio Shack testers I also own. The only downside is that it's larger than these others, but it does have a pocket clip.

    5Excellent build quality and performance.
    By AA
    This instrument works great. I was quickly able to detect 120 volt outlets and 240 volt outlets by inserting the color coded wires (black is live and goes into the shorter hole while the red is neutral and goes into the taller hole for my three hole outlet). The construction is high quality and the unit fits in my palm well. I can see myself using this tool for many years ahead. I enclose a snapshot of working unit when plugged into a 120 volt outlet for your view.

    5Tiny life saver
    By D. R. Kaiser
    Got this little guy to find out what wires were hot so that I could swap out a light switch. It's very simple and easy to use and lights up brightly to give you exactly what you want, to find out where the electricity is at. Couldn't have completed the job without it.
