I'm confused...You'll find that a NCVT (tic-tester) will beep from up to a foot or more away from a large energized surface. Here's a video of me imposing a "hot-skin" potential of up to 120-volts on a 40 ft RV and showing how a Fluke VoltAlert lights up from nearly 2 feet away. Too much fun!!! :thumbup:
Anything could be dangerous under the right set of circumstances.
I appreciate your concern , but let's use that logic in another scenario.
What are my chances of coming in contact with an energized gas or copper water line when crawling under a house?
What are my chances of being in the cross fire of a drive by when working in the hood?
I can come up with many circumstances where I can be killed.
With that way of logic I might as well stay strapped to my sofa.
You are...and you are still defending your work practices.NO I am not.
You posted a good way to get someone/thing hurt - and that is all.I posted a way I tested for voltage on a conductive surface.
?To each his own.
I've always been brutally honest with you - I'm not about to stop.Let's end it at that shall we?
If I am not mistaken, that is a Klein NCVT-1Mike, what is red/green designation there?
Klein said:High intensity, bright green LED indicates the tester is operational and aids in illuminating the workspace.
When voltage is detected, a high intensity, bright red LED illuminates and a warning tone sounds.
