Test insulation resistance with a Klein ET600

Posted by:
New ET600 from Klein Tools


The risk of electric shock, fire and blown circuits can be identified and eliminated thanks to the new ET600 Digital Insulation Resistance Tester from Klein Tools.

Ideal for insulation resistance testing, troubleshooting and maintenance of electrical wiring, the ET600 is a multi-function megohmmeter, offering huge functionality and intuitive operation at an affordable price.

With four voltage ranges (up to 4000MΩ at 125V, 250V, 500V, and 1000V DC) for insulation resistance measurements, it also features a True Root-Mean-Squared (TRMS) AC/DC voltage tester up to 1000V, accurate DC battery level, low resistance, and audible continuity.

Simply pressing the large “Test” button begins the test or the “Continuous Lock” button allows for hands-free insulation resistance testing if required. The ET600 features a built-in stand allowing for hands-free operation, or alternatively there is also a rare earth magnetic hanger clip (KL69417) available to purchase separately.

With a brightly lit large digital display plus bar graph, auto-power off, high voltage, min/max and hold icons, test readings are easy to see. With verification of conformity to EN61557-1-2,-4 and one year calibration validation, you can be confident in the results.

When it’s time to pack up, the test leads conveniently clip into the back of the unit providing easy-to-access storage.

The ET600 comes complete with right angle test leads, heavy-duty alligator clip test leads, 6 x AA batteries and a carry pouch.

  • Test insulation resistance up to 4000MΩ at 125V, 250V, 500V and 1000V DC.
  • Large test and lock buttons for simple insulation testing.
  • Warning alarm and high voltage icon for detection of voltage.
  • Automatic ranging TRMS technology for increase accuracy.
  • Safety Rating: CAT IV 600V, CAT III 1000V, Class 2, Double insulation.
