Triplett Simplifies Electrical Outlet & Equipment Troubleshooting with Re-Imagined GFCI Receptacle Testers

New testers improve ergonomics and expand testing capabilities

Triplett Test Equipment, a leading maker of test equipment tools, announced the launch of two GFCI receptacle testers designed to expand the versatility of this essential electrical troubleshooting tool. The ET200’s integrated line-splitter makes it significantly easier to test both circuit wiring and connected electrical devices and appliances. The compact ET100 introduces an ergonomic “easy-pull” design to remove the tester from high-retention outlets.

The new tools are designed to make receptacle and electrical testing easier for commercial and residential electrical contractors, home inspectors, kitchen and bath installers, apartment/condo property managers, DIY’ers and handymen.

ET100 Easy-Pull GFCI Receptacle Tester

The compact ET100 tester re-imagines the GFCI receptacle tester by adding an ergonomic finger loop to ease removal from receptacles, especially those with high retention force. (Found in hospitals, schools, hotels, office buildings as well as residential kitchens and baths, these receptacles are designed to hold a plug’s blades and grounding pin securely to ensure safety and effective grounding.)

As a full-function GFCI receptacle tester, the ET100 can pinpoint wiring faults in NEMA 5-15 recepta- cles used in residential and commercial sites throughout North America. A simple push-button test helps validate GFCI receptacles are operating properly. The color-coded 3-light display helps users pinpoint any one of five potential wiring issues: Open Ground, Open Neutral, Reversed Hot and Ground, Open Hot as well as Reversed Hot and Neutral. Codes are indicated on on both side of the tester to ensure easy viewing regardless of the receptacle’s orientation.
