Amprobe VPC-10A Voltage and Continuity Tester


Measure ac and dc voltage in circuitry and its components
Measure ac and dc voltage in circuitry and its components
Test outlets, light fixtures, batteries and extension cords
Test continuity of fuses, light bulbs and electrical connections

Amprobe’s hand-held residential and commercial Voltage and Continuity Testers are loaded with safety, time-saving and accuracy features. They allow you to quickly troubleshoot voltage and continuity for residential and commercial applications using visual and audible alerts.


What can I do with it?

You can quickly measure ac and dc voltage in circuitry and its components—including outlets, light fixtures, batteries and extension cords— as well as test the continuity of fuses, light bulbs and electrical connections.

In addition to full range polarity detection, they both signal continuity and voltage with visual and audible alerts. On its face, seven LED indicators clearly differentiate between key voltage levels: 24, 120, 208, 240, 277, 480, 600 V ac; and 6, 12, 24, 36, 48,110, 220 V dc.

What’s special about it?

To increase accuracy and speed, the VPC-10A turns on when a complete circuit is sensed, automatically select AC or DC voltage or continuity mode, and auto-off when removed from a circuit.

Measuring under 6 inches long and weighing less than half a pound, its rugged, compact design allows for easy one-handed use. With an operating battery life of 300 hours and operating temperature ranging from 41 degrees F to 140 degrees F, this tool is just as rugged and reliable as it is safe.

How safe is it?

As is expected from an Amprobe tool, it brings the highest standard of safety to professional electricians, appliance technicians and home owners working in CAT III 600 V environments. The VPC-10A complies with the requirements of relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislation; complies with the applicable technical standards for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC); and has been independently certified by CSR for US and Canadian Markets.

In CAT III environments, use the test probes with the probe cap on. This decreases the exposed probe tip to reduce the possibility of arc flash from short circuits. When the probe cap is off, the probe tip is 18 mm and rated to CAT II 1000 V.

What does it come with?

It comes complete so you can use them right away, including three 1.5 V AAA batteries and a printed user manual.
