Safer socket testing
28 March 2018
Suitable for use as a first line indicator to identify potentially unsafe installations and wiring faults, socket testers offer a fast and effective solution. The CP501 Check Plug and BZ101Buzz-It are said to be the UK’s favourite socket testers designed for easy verification of wall socket wiring
The Martindale CP501 classic check plug is a quick and easy way to ensure that 13A sockets are correctly wired.
Featuring 3 bright long life LEDs, wiring faults are indicated by one of the LEDs failing to illuminate, with the pattern of lit LEDs indicating the type of fault detected. This fail-safe system means that any LED not lit indicates a fault. The fault condition can be easily identified from the list of most common faults clearly displayed on the front of the label.
The BZ101 offers the added benefit of a buzzer for checking sockets that are not easily visible.
