Purkeys announced it has developed an electrical tool kit that allows technicians to test and diagnose a variety of electrical issues on heavy-duty vehicles.
“We put a lot thought into this and made a good kit that will give a technician all the tools they need to do their job properly,” said Larry Rambeaux Purkeys national truck and fleet representative.
The Purkeys Electrical Tool Kit is an all-in-one package that comes with a heavy-duty industrial multimeter, a wide-range mini IR thermometer, a bead wire type K temperature probe, a mini DC clamp-on ammeter, and general purpose test leads, the company said.
According to the company, the multimeter is what technicians will use the most out of all the tools in the kit. It is a voltmeter, ammeter, and ohmmeter. Technicians can use this tool for a variety of applications including continuity checks, diode checks, capacity checks, and more.
Purkeys Clip-on Ammeter was designed to be an “accurate and dependable ammeter that any technician can easily use,” the company stated. It has a 40-amp scale and 400-amp scale.
According to the company, the infrared gun is useful for load tests on batteries because modern battery testers require temperature input.
