New IDEAL Combo Case Family
Is Most Convenient Way To Approach Electrical Testing Jobs

SYCAMORE, IL, March 26, 2007 – All the right testing tools on hand exactly when the electrician needs them most: that is the concept behind the new Combo Case line from IDEAL. Combo Cases are deluxe kits of high-quality IDEAL power testing equipment and accessories suited for unique applications, and packaged in one convenient, cost-efficient carrying case.

Unlike competitor's models, the IDEAL tool does not require the contactor to remove and replace stripping cartridges when moving from one cable type to the other. Instead, it saves the contractor valuable time by integrating both a UTP and Coax cartridge into its frame.

Available immediately, the new IDEAL Combo Cases are:

  • Vol-Con® XL Voltage Tester provides reliable continuity and AC/DC voltage testing with the safety of a CAT III rating and dual independent circuitry. Features replaceable leads with shielded probe tips.
  • Circuit Breaker Finder allows electrical contractors to quickly and accurately trace 120VAC circuit breakers and fuses without costly service interruptions
  • Non-Contact Voltage Tester locates breaks along live, insulated wires and for detecting power prior to service.
