Make sure you have a good electrical tool kit for industrial and commercial electric work. Our electrical meters, testers and analyzers, including home inspection tools have been chosen for electrical testing and inspection to locate, diagnose and pinpoint potential electrical problems. From simple voltage and current sensing probes to our full line of digital multimeters, circuit analyzers, and wire gauges, these electrical devices cover all your industrial testing and inspection needs. Fish tape is essential for electricians to pull stranded or solid wire through metal or PVC conduit. Cable lube is available to assist you in pulling the wires through pipes as well. While cable is still pulled manually on residential and light commercial jobs, new lightweight power pullers bring cable through conduit on a variety of industrial projects. Larger power-pulling tools are used for making long, multiple-cable commercial installations. The same pulling equipment used for electrical cable also can be used to pull datacom cabling.
Highly durable Knockout Punches are an electrician's favorite tool when he needs to make a hole in an electrical box or panel. A knockout punch set gives you the choice of many different sized knockouts to make different sized holes. Knockouts, also called slug busters, are a cutting tool that actually cuts the metal hole in half and are available from the industrial supply superstore. The industrial cutter is used to cut through heavy sheet metal, stainless steel, plastic, and fibreglass. An electrical tester pen or test pen is a device for quickly checking whether a conductor is live. The tip of the device is touched to the conductor being tested (for instance, it can be used on a wire in a switch or inserted into a hole of an electric socket). The type of tester not requiring direct contact is the inductive amplifier. The user must touch the top of the handle at which point the indicator will light up, or a speaker will buzz, if the conductor being tested is live.
