insulation resistance up to 200 GΩ and
have selectable test voltages from 10V
to 1,000V. They automatically discharge
at the end of the test; have manual, lock
and timer test modes; and use an active
voltmeter to detect live voltage prior to
starting a test.

voltage value, temperature, comparator
setting values and comparator judgement.
Users can send data using Bluetooth.
27 CONDUIT CAP EZ Cap’s conduit caps are
designed to keep conduit ends clean and
eliminate the need to duct tape and label
conduit or PVC. They slide onto conduit
ends and can be labeled to lay out multiple
