Best non contact voltage testers

Oct 9, 2020 | Electrical

“Is voltage present or not?” When working with electricity, this is often the first question that needs to be answered.

This question is a critical part of electrical testing. The Occupational Safety and Hazard Administration(OSHA) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) both direct workers to de-energize all live parts to which an employee may be exposed, unless live conditions are required for troubleshooting.

Best electrical and voltage testers

Pocket-sized, non-contact voltage detectors

Fluke’s VoltAlert™ AC non-contact voltage detectors, also known as a tester pen or electrical testers, quickly and safely identify the presence of voltage. These tools are small and rugged—perfect for storing in your shirt pocket where they can be easily accessed for immediate use. There are four detectors in the Fluke VoltAlert line, each designed to meet the personal preferences of the user. From electricians, maintenance, service, and technicians to homeowners, there is a Fluke VoltAlert voltage detector for you.

Which VoltAlert™ tester is right for me?

What is the best non-contact voltage tester? Do you prefer your non-contact voltage detector to be on and ready all the time? Or do you prefer one you can turn on and off? What’s your preference for voltage presence notification? A flashing light? A beep? Both?

Fluke 1AC II VoltAlert Non-Contact Voltage Detector

Use the Fluke 1AC II non-contact voltage tester if you need a quality tool for general voltage detection and prefer a tool with on/off capabilities.

  • Voltage range: 90 V to 1000 V AC
  • Voltbeat™ technology and continuous self-test — so you always know it’s working
  • Voltage indication: tip glows and beeper sounds (beeper can be disabled)
  • Safety: CAT IV 1000 V
  • On-off switch for maximum battery life

Fluke 2AC VoltAlert Non-Contact Voltage Detector

Use the Fluke 2AC voltage tester if you work in environments where voltage indication by sight is more important than sound and prefer a tool that is always on and ready for use.

  • Voltage range: 90 V to 1000 V AC
  • Voltage indication: tip glows
  • Safety: CAT IV 1000 V
  • Always on, using special low power circuitry to sustain battery life and ensure your 2AC is always ready
  • 'Battery Check' function ensures battery is in good condition

Fluke 1LAC II A VoltAlert Non-Contact Voltage Detector

Use the Fluke 1LAC II A non-contact voltage tester if low voltage detection is needed, such as in control signal identification.

  • Voltage range: 20 V to 90 V AC
  • Voltage indication: tip glows and beeper sounds
  • Voltbeat™ technology and continuous self-test — so you always know it's working
  • Safety: CAT IV 1000 V

Fluke LVD2 VoltAlert Non-Contact Voltage Detector

Use the Fluke LVD2 voltage tester if you are working in dark environments where a bright LED flashlight is needed.

  • Voltage range: 90 V to 600 V AC, features dual-sensitivity for two levels of detection
  • Voltage indication: blue light (proximity), red light (source located)
  • Ultra-bright white LED light with 100,000-hour bulb life
  • Safety: CAT IV 600 V
