Maybe we even don´t realize in a common praxis, how important role is played by measuring leads of a measuring device, the most often multimeter. Firstly, they´re “responsible” for a good transfer of a signal to a measuring device and at the same time they perform an important safety function, especially at measuring of higher voltages or on devices, where such a voltage can appear (unexpectedly).
Testing leads are often exposed to a considerable mechanical stress at measuring. As for the safety, especially older or damaged leads need to be replaced soon and better not to risk a possible injury. Older low quality measuring lead often shows small defects and it´s not that rare, when a broken thin wire (one of many which create a stranded wire) penetrates insulation from inside and stays hidden close to an outer surface. Naturally, in this case we can forget the declared properties of such lead.
Measuring/ testing leads Voltcraft are a novelty in our offer:
● MS-4 - set of safety measuring leads 10A/CATIII/1000V. Leads have a quality classic tip, usable even for a banana F socket. Also included are quality crocodile clamps with a thick insulation.
● MS-4N - set of safety measuring leads with an insulation from extra flexible silicone rubber, 10A/ CATIV/ 600V. Easy and safe removing of tips covers thanks to a click mechanism. Indication lug on a red lead for an easy orientation even in twilight. Extraordinary high flexibility makes the measurement especially pleasant and they´re highly resistant to hot surfaces at the same time.
● MS-7 - set of safety measuring leads 20A/CATIV/600V. A set with the highest current handling capacity from these three sets.
All three sets conform to EN61010-031:2008 safety standard and all of them have removable top covers (as illustrated on attached pictures) for comfortable measuring in tiny places (for example on a PCB). Comparison and basic features of these measuring cords can be found in an attached table.
