Heavy-duty vehicles are far from simple machines. When they are not working correctly, it can be a challenge to find the source of the issue. Technicians not only need proper training, but they also need the proper tools.

Our ELECTRICAL TOOL KIT gives technicians a basic kit to test and diagnose a variety of electrical issues on heavy-duty vehicles. This all-in-one kit comes with a heavy-duty industrial multimeter, clip-on ammeter, a wide-range mini IR thermometer, a bead wire type K temperature probe, and general-purpose test leads.

Multimeter

The multimeter is the tool that technicians will use most. Technicians can use this tool for a variety of applications, including voltage drop, continuity checks, diode checks, capacity checks, and more. For more information about using a multimeter for diagnosing electrical issues on heavy-duty vehicles, watch our free webinar here.

Clip-on Ammeter

Our Clip-on Ammeter was designed with one purpose: to be an extremely accurate and dependable ammeter that any technician can easily use. It has a 40 amp scale and 400 amp scale. To use, simply clamp around any wire with current flowing—there is no need to break the circuit.

Infrared Thermometer  

An infrared gun is useful in situations such as performing load tests on batteries, because modern battery testers require temperature input. Without this device, technicians have to estimate the temperature, which can affect the test.
