Continuing our series on electrical testing around the workplace and at home, we decided to take a look at something that everyone has in their house: the conventional circuit breaker panel. As our gadgets and household appliances get more and more complex, they also require more power. How do you test to see if your circuit breaker can handle 240 volts of pure domestic power? Well click below and we’ll show you how!
Correcting problems with electrical wiring can be intimidating, particularly when it involves connecting two large, mobile objects like a tow vehicle and a trailer. It might be easy to detect if something is wrong — the most obvious indicator is that the trailer’s brake or turn signal lights won’t light up. But some wiring issues can be harder to detect and narrowing down the specific problem can be even trickier. That’s where wiring testers come in.
A voltage tester and a continuity tester are adequate for many diagnostic jobs, and they are relatively inexpensive, but for more serious electrical and appliance troubleshooting and repairs, investing in a volt-ohm meter (VOM) is the way to go. Click below to learn more.
