Triplett ET100 and ET200 GFCI receptacle testers
By Anthony Capkun
October 12, 2020 – Triplett Test Equipment has launched two GFCI receptacle testers. The ET100 has a finger loop to ease removal from receptacles, and can pinpoint wiring faults in NEMA 5-15 receptacles. The colour-coded, 3-light display helps you pinpoint any one of five potential wiring issues. Codes are indicated on both sides of the tester for easy viewing.
The ET200 boasts the same functionality as the ET100, but also includes an integrated line-splitter, promises to make it easier to perform voltage measurements and test current loads of connected appliances or electrical equipment. The ET200’s line splitter can be used with a clamp meter to measure current loads up to 15A without splicing wires or other modifications.
The two-mode line splitter enables a clamp meter to capture direct current readings for typical loads while an “X10” position can be used with smaller current readings (which are then multiplied by 10). Voltage test jacks can be used with a clamp meter or multimeter’s test leads for inline testing without disrupting the circuit.
