A cable tester can be used for many purposes in a house. It can be used for repair of simple wiring or complicated projects, such as the replacement and installation of main circuits. Some of the advantages of using a cable tester into your home.
Detects broken son

A wire tester can detect if a wire is broken or not. Sometimes, the circuits do not work because some are broken or damaged son. When the wire is broken, the current can pass through. To check for broken son, set the tester to read the resistance. The wire resistance will indicate if a wire is broken or not. Touch the tester probes on the wire and see if the tester shows a low resistance or high. Son with high resistance are called son bare. The son can not currently pass through because they are broken. If the tester indicates a low resistance, the wire is in good condition and is continuous.
Detect Live Wires

During the repair of electrical circuits at home, it is preferable to deactivate the source. This means turn the breaker. Sometimes the breaker does not work and this poses a dangerous electric shock when working with son naked. To check if the son is electrically conductive or not, it is preferable to use a cable tester. Set the tester to read current. Touch the two probes of the tester on the wire and see if it gives a reading. If the tester indicates no current, the wire is safe to touch with bare hands. If the tester detects current, make sure the breaker is repaired.
Detects cross lines

intersecting lines are not only dangerous, but they also lose a lot of electricity. If you move to a new house, it is best to check the lines intersect. A line is a cross connection between two channels. Normally, the connections must be insulated to ensure efficient use of electricity. A wire tester can detect these lines intersect.
Voltage readings, amperage and resistance

A wire tester can also be used for a simple reading of the voltage, amperage, or resistance in a circuit son. To ensure that a socket has the right amount of voltage probes on the tester can be connected to the sides of the socket to determine the amount of tension on the connection. The tester can also read the resistance of a wire. It also reads the exact amount of current passing through the wire. These values are very important when doing electrical repairs on a house circuit or electrical appliances.

You do not have to be a licensed electrician technician to possess and use the tester to wire in your house. In fact, every home should have one that adults in the household can use. It will not only save you the trouble to know what son or damaged condition, it will also save your family against the danger of electrocution by seemingly innocuous broken son.
