NEW YORK — When doing electrical work and troubleshooting, or renovation and remodeling, it is essential to locate circuit breakers, detect “hot” wires, and identify outlet wiring faults. The new Circuit Breaker Finder with NCV Detector and GFCI Outlet Checker (BF20) from General Tools & Instruments makes all of these tasks safe, easy and fast.
Comprising a transmitter and receiver, General’s BF20 allows users to accurately perform the following tasks in a fraction of the time of other methods:
- Determine the circuit breaker or fuse associated with any 110V outlet without interrupting power
- Detect energized lines, cables & outlets
- Test for & identify five common outlet wiring faults
- Verify the operation of Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) circuits
The BF20’s fully automatic operation turns two-man jobs into one-man jobs. When the transmitter is plugged into any 110V outlet, it sends a signal to the circuit breaker panel. At the panel, the receiver tip can be used to “scan” all of the breakers, or fuses, to identify the associated breaker.
Designed to comply with safety standard IEC 61010-1, the BF20 has a three-year limited warranty. For more about General Tools & Instruments and its products, visit www.generaltools.com
