Fluke 2AC VoltAlert™ Voltage Detector

Always on for faster, safer voltage testing
2AC is the latest addition to the VoltAlert™ ac non- contact voltage tester family from Fluke and is designed to be pocket-sized and easy to use. The 2AC tests for energized circuits and defective grounds, whether it’s for an electrician on the factory floor or the do-it-yourselfer around the house. The tip of the pocket-sized tester will glow red when within close proximity of an outlet, terminal strip, or power cord where voltage is present.

A good tool, it works however should never be used as a sole tool to detect if something is live. should always be used in conjunction with a proper voltage meter

I know we aren’t supposed to use or rely on these as a safe isolation proving unit but as a quick check unit for non contact it works. Then if you are doing proper safe isolation procedure you can bring out the proper tester before carrying out the task at hand.

Fluke are one of the leading manufacturers for testing equipment. The fluke pen is a brilliant little tester but I personally would not rely on the pen it’s self for making sure the circuit is live or dead. Always use a voltage/multimeter tester. Great little tool for your pocket.

As a heating engineer one of the first test we are meant to do is check the casing to a boiler isn't live, this non contact test pen has saved my life on a few occasions. The pen has two modes, visual only or visual and beep. Quality build and long battery life make it the best test pen. As with anything the best it's not the cheapest, but you can't put a price on your life.

Lad who works with me has just purchased one of these as he seems to just go for the better named brands instead of looking asking for advice or reading other reviews. Although a very well known brand, for what it is its pricey, alternative options are available at a more affordable price. Nice item and does as it should just priced due to the brand name instead of being more competitive.

I've had a few cheap n cheerful ones which I've ended up usually launching into the air at some point! The good ones have lasted I've just lost them or left them somewhere ! These are ok for a notification of power present but always test it first with a voltage/continuity tester before sticking ya fingers in !!

Never all that keen on using a safety device called fluke, just seems like tempting fate ;). Otherwise, works well for a good while then starts being erratic so I buy a new one about every year. I like them.

Used it religiously for six months or so and then it would start turning itself on or off of its own accord in my trouser pocket. (The long ones on work trouser legs not the wallet/keys ones). I've changed batteries when required and it made no difference. I found that sometimes it wouldn't pick up when i knew a cable was live and vice versa it would give false readings on dead cables. Try rubbing one on your sleeve and see it give a reading off the static. I've gone back to using a multimeter and a voltage tester as I know I can rely on those.( Both made by Fluke) I love Fluke but I don't think these instruments as a whole should be relied upon to verify safety, I also don't think that the Fluke one is any more worthwhile than a cheapo screwfix etc. one.

I've had about 5 of these over the past 5 years and they are an awesome bit of kit, very handy for simple things like checking to see if a Pump has a supply or not. I have had 5, not because they are breaking but because I keep losing them. They do sometimes show a false voltage but it's better that way than the other.

Best volt stick out there, I've tried a few in my time. It's reliable due to the flashing indication that it's turned on and a double confirmation of Voltage detection via a solid light and beep. These devices are not suitable for a proper safe isolation prior to working on a circuit but handy when needed.

Question for Fluke 2AC VoltAlert™ Voltage Detector Answers for Fluke 2AC VoltAlert™ Voltage Detector

The best one I’ve been able to find. I have had some that vibrate and make noise aswell as light up and they seem to all break a lot more quickly. I wouldn’t change to another brand.

Brite Spark Electrical - answer on July 21, 2018 @ 01:14

The Klein one is the only one I’ve found more reliable than this. It also operates at 0-50v as well.

Crawley Gas Engineer - answer on July 28, 2018 @ 08:20

Definitely the best volt pen that I’ve had, I have 2 of these, one in my pocket and one back up in the tool box. When it comes to electricity you should only use quality gear.
