When leaving the house or office for the site or a job knowing that you have everything you will need to complete the work in one handy, easily accessible place means peace of mind for electricians.
“The ELECKT 16-piece electrical tool kit from HellermannTyton includes all the essentials for an electrician to carry out their day’s work, including a multimeter, cutters and pliers,” says Ryan Burger, divisional product manager – Tools and Instruments at HellermannTyton. Notably, all tools carry a lifetime warranty, giving electrical contractors the reassurance that if anything goes wrong with the tools through normal use, the company will replace them.
Burger notes that the ELECKT kit is receiving an upgrade for 2021. “All new toolbag kits from HellermannTyton will come with the next generation T235H digital multimeter. Features of the True RMS T235H include an LCD screen size of 61 x 36 mm; transistor testing; a flashlight; non-contact voltage detection (NCV); no on/off button (auto on/ off), as well as a tougher protective cover.
Along with the T235H, electricians will have all the essentials tools easily at hand in a polyester zip case. Additional tools included are:
- 200 mm adjustable spanner
- Utility knife
- Allen key 1.5; 2; 2.5; 3; 4; 5;, 5.5 and 6.8
- ECOSET 7-piece 1000 V insulated screwdrivers
- 5 LED headlight with adjustable settings
- 180 mm diagonal cutter
- 160 mm long-nose pliers
- 180 mm pliers • Indent crimper 38 cm (H) x 24 cm (W)
“A handy tool for the electrician is the neon voltage tester included in the 7-piece ECOSET,” explains Burger. “It can be used to check to see if a wire is live. It is not good practice to simply check that a wire is not live as there could be a fault, and the voltage tester can be used to prove that a wire is live. Do not simply believe that a wire is dead – further testing with a multimeter will be in order if it indicates no voltage.”
If further tools are required, a bigger, 32-piece backpack is also available from HellermannTyton.
