Question

If you're looking at designing a dual impedance meter, sorry, but they have been out for years. Am I missing something into your intention?

I often utilize the trip "feature". The test button isn't always applicable.


For example, finding out if a downstream recep is on a particular GFCI.

There are cases where it has been an inconvienence like when you test something to ground not knowing it's GFCI protected then scratch your head because you thought it was just hot, but I have learned to work around that.

PS. On your new "wiggy" figure out a way to keep the leads from grabbing every doorknob I walk by. After 30+ years, that schit is getting old.

Nemo,

You're not missing anything. I can't tell you exactly what I'm doing, because my competition could be reading too. I have a Idea for a tester that is not available today, and I think it will be welcomed. It will do things that no current tester available today will do. But, in adding these new functions, I also don't want to take away functions that some want.

The way people answer this question will tell me more than you think. It is not just about impedance, and GFCI tripping. This thread has been very helpful. When I have protos, I'll be happy to send some out for testing.

Thanks,
Bruce

Def Trip. A tester that trips on active to earth you can test for polarity and if the earth is in the incorrect spot. If it doesn't trip the earth and neutral could be reversed and you wouldn't know. Im talking about circuits on a safety switch here (im an Aussie sparky so im not sure what yank terminoligy is).

Having said that though I think we encounter different problems as your houses (correct me if im wrong) your houses have something like 150v and 240v while our houses only have 230v for everything. When I need to measure voltage and I dont want a trip I use a multimeter

Well Bruce your secret is out once a person or inventor has publicity or exposed or open writings of any kind or meaning the web internet its kinda not a secure place to bring your new invention out or explain how it might work it does not have to be a detailed drawning or a document just the fact that you are talking about this here is not a good thing .

Iam just trying to help you do not take this the wrong way but look at the patent rules to apply for a patent first .

Heres why once you do this its now public knowledge meaning you cant get a patent on you invention or anyone else in your case your new tester .

This means after you have designed it built it went thur the bank to manufacture it your competition can legally make it with out your permission .

Take care
