Extech Instruments describes its new CT70 AC Circuit Load Tester as a sophisticated plug-in tester that instantly analyzes outlet circuit wiring conditions and alerts users to conditions that are potentially hazardous or detrimental to power quality. The CT70 is said to be able to quickly inspect and detect circuit and wiring problems such as poor ground impedance, false grounds, missing ground fault protection, low voltage availability under load, and high ground-to-neutral voltage. It also tests GFCI and EPD circuits. The color-coded display changes from blue to red, providing a visual alert when a problem is detected.
