Can you use this tool to determine which of several black wires in a box is the hot one? If there...

Asked by williasp April 26, 2020

Answers

Yes, the NCVT-3 can measure individual wires to determine which one is hot, but be careful in a junction box with several wires, electromagnetic fields can make it confusing. You may want to use a multimeter if uncertain to determine which wire is hot.

Has, another function.

can this product differentiate between 120v and 240v lines?

Answers

It has a light display of how strong it is. After a few days working with it I found that 3-4 lights was around 120 and about 5-6 is 240 and that is with it with in two inches from the wire.

How many lumens?

Not sure, but it is certainly bright enough to see inside an outlet. Also, it has a lens that focuses the light as you move closer to an object.

worthless Unfortunately
First let me say that im most definitly a klein guy i work as an electrician and beside milwaukee for my power tools everything in my bag is klein(including the bag) this being said I really wanted to like this tester but it has been a huge letdown. The flashlight is bright but that’s about where the pros end it drains batteries ridiculously fast, The non-contact Tester Like the plague guess whether the wire is hot with you giving false readings on dead wires as well as false readings On live wires. Change the batteries multiple times this made no difference pocket clip broke in the first week of usage. And one thing I find most annoying is the little spacer spring underneath the Where the batteries go, This is not connected in anyway to the device and yet it will not function if you happen to drop and lose this little tiny spring it also seems to have a negative impact on the Overall reliability of the readings the tester produces. It does not fit in an outlet, And then when you finally do get a reading on a live wire that’s reliable it’s so sensitive that if there’s more than one wire in the box you won’t be able to differentiate which is hot and which is not. Don’t waste your money like I did get a fluke you’ll thank me in the end As they’re pretty much the only worthwhile noncontact tester I found. Klein does make amazing tools for professionals this however isn’t even suitable for your average Joe homeowner i expected more from me go to brand thats for sure......

Love it! Had bought the kit, with the less expensive non contact tester. Was DOA, the batteries already installed had leaked. Returned the kit and bought this one. Perfect! My wife was even using it since I had some breakers kicked off. She went around the house looking for a live outlet, so she could charge her phone. I really like this product for function and it's easily stored away.

I definately would recommend this Klein Tools Non-Contact Voltage Tester. I've been working in electric for about a year now & I found Klein to be the most reliable on the jobsite. The flashlight is pretty strong too, so when you're working in dark areas this makes life a lot easier!

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Really solid build and it works great. I like that it has a simple on/off button and not the silly twist on/off like my old one, I hated that. What's funny is that when I first got this I thought "Hah, a flashlight. I'll never use that" except... The other day I'm installing a new chandelier and I can't see where the junction box is attached to the rafters because it's too dark. What do you know, I have a handy flashlight already out because I'm testing the wires. Not too shabby!

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This is a very durable, quality-made tool, as one would expect from Klein Tools. It is made of a high-impact plastic, so should stand up to the rigors of professional contractor use. It's sealed against dust and water intrusion. Been using it the last couple of days, on the job. It will alert on a piece of NM-B (romex) at 120v from 2"-3" away, and on a piece of thermostat wire at 24v from about 3/4". I've seen other reviewers elsewhere complain that the tip is not shaped to allow it to insert into a receptacle, but I do not see that as an issue, as I found it to alert within an inch or so of the face of any that I tried it on. I will false alert some when jarred or touched at the tip, due to static, but this is something that is common to most all non-contact voltage testers. The flashlight itself does not provide a lot of light, but it's enough to be of help to illuminate the task some in a dark area of an electrical enclosure, or up in the dark corner of an attic or crawlspace. Holding the tip of the tester about 18" from the task, the area of illumination is roughly 6 inches. In summary, I think that this durable Klein tester would be a nice addition to the tool arsenal of anyone that would have need for one, be they a DIY'er or a professional tradesman.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Waterproof, compact, bright flash light, easy to operate and shirt pocket clip. This incredibly convenient non-contact voltage tester shows a range of voltage via a light meter which has helped with recent work in the rec room wiring projects. Flashlight built-in was bright enough to use when the power was out. The body of the tool is yellow so its easy to spot on the workbench too. This has been a very handy, sturdy tool to use for my electrical work in the basement and will be in easy reach because the flashlight is bright enough for everyday uses too.

The tester does not accurately measure low voltage current. I bought it to help me find the break in my low voltage outdoor lighting but it was not able to register the voltage in the wire leading to the lights that were still working. Seems to work ok on 120 voltage wiring.
