So I got this tax rebate and I'm thinking of blowing it on a new
Multifunction Installation Tester.
Seems that Alphatek is not well liked, so it's a choice between Fluke
165x and Megger 155x.
I don't need the "connect to a PC and download results" functionality.
Any general thoughts or comments appreciated regarding
I've got a Amprobe Combitest 2019 on long term loan from a very decent
It's the only 16th edition tester I've used (though I've got buckets
of experience with electronics test gear), but it's an upmarket one,
has quickly and easily done everything I wanted - and I'm certain the
owner would have done his homework most thoroughly before buying. Very
high quality test leads with it too.
Not with a 165x - its an installation tester.
I have a 1652 and an Alphatek. The Alphatek is ok but a bit limited
when it comes to the auto sequence tests for a 30mA RCD. The Fluke is
ok but the probes not quite as secure with the croc clips as the
Alpha. They are both reasonable bits of kit with different prices.
