Type K-60 Voltage Tester (CAT III)
K-60 Voltage Tester is a simple, yet vital, device
which should be found in every electrician's tool belt. It is used to detect the presence,
or absence, of voltage prior to working on a circuit.
The K-60 has many features which set it apart from the competition.
- Dual voltage indication (neon lamp and indicating arm)
- Compact design (easily fits in most any tool belt)
- Unsurpassed ruggedness
- Stainless steel prod tips
- Works without a battery
- Low input impedance (approx. 4000 ohms) to help identify circuits
with loose or marginal connections
- All internal connections are soldered (no crimping)
- Prod-mount case for easy operation in difficult situations
- Two year warranty
- Made in the USA by Union laborers
The K-60 features a solenoid-driven indicating arm and neon lamp.
Both of these are used to indicate the presence of voltage from 120 to 600 Volts (AC and
DC). The arm provides a visual indication of the voltage level. The neon indicator
provides redundancy and allows the user to determine if the indicated voltage is AC or DC.
Finally, the solenoid provides a vibration which is a further indication of the presence
Many less expensive imitations of the K-60 have been produced over
the years, but the K-60 remains unsurpassed in quality and reliability. Isn't that what is
most important in a Tester? To see a comparison of the K-60 to other Testers click
