Fluke 2AC VoltALERT Non-Contact Voltage Detector
VoltALERT non-contact voltage tester is the new addition to this series by Fluke. Pocket-sized and easy to use, the 2AC tests for defective grounds and energized circuits. A glowing red tip lights up when in close proximity of where voltage is present, such as a terminal strips, power cords or outlet wires.
Two new features on this instrument allow the user to be always at the ready, using special low power circuitry to sustain battery life the 2AC is always on the go. An innovative battery check button also allows users to ensure the battery is in good condition. Finally a clip design optimises pocket and tool bag storage.

• Battery check button
• Category IV – 1000 V overvoltage rated product for best in class user protection
• Rugged and reliable
• -10°C to 50 °C operating temperature
Frequently asked questions:
What is a non-contact voltage tester used for?
Voltage testers or detectors are used to check the flow of current through a circuit. They can be used to check safety, or to ensure equipment is functioning correctly. They can also test for the current strength, whether the circuit is grounded correctly or to ensure no current is flowing at all so that work can be begin on the circuit.
How do non-contact voltage testers work?
Also known as a voltage detector, voltage tester pens, sensors or test pens. They allow the user to test electrical conductors without touching them. Non-contact testers are the safest and easiest way to detect electric fields or voltage. Voltage testers utilise what is called capacitive coupling, the user holding the instrument provides a ground reference. The tester then detects changing electric field around the object or objects conducting an AC current. (Alternating current) Simply put, the user and the tester pen when near the electrical conductor will cause a small current to flow through the tester from the source, this is how it detects AC voltage.
