FLIR Systems, an industrial technology company, has announced the FLIR VP42, a non-contact voltage detector with an integrated flashlight

The VP42 is designed for field-troubleshooting and verification of residential, commercial, and industrial electrical installations.

To ensure a safe job site, the VP42 makes it easy to quickly troubleshoot live and neutral wiring.

The pen-size tester, with built-in flashlight and CAT IV safety rating, identifies the presence of AC voltage without contacting wires, even in the latest safety outlets. The VP42 simplifies wire identification by sorting and tracking neutral and live wires in sockets and junction boxes.

Inspired by smartphones, the VP42 uses both multi-coloured LEDs and vibration to alert electrical contractors of live voltage; ensuring that inspectors do not miss these notifications at loud or dark locations.

The tester is built for longevity, with an anti-roll case body and rugged construction that can withstand a three-meter (9.8-feet) drop onto concrete. The VP42 is also protected by a FLIR three-year warranty.
