    You won't find a better budget leakage tester than the Di-Log DL6507. It's actually better than some of the far more expensive testers...

    Every electrician should have a leakage clamp tester, as part of their test equipment these day's, RCD devices are here to stay. The problems they can give when something is wrong, can often only be detected by such a leakage clamps....

    I'll second the Di-log DL6507. Essential bit of kit these days, can get it for around £100ish.

    I'd personally put the di-log unit up against the megger unit, i doubt there would be much in it either, ....except about 200 quid difference in price!! lol!!

    Look through the 'tools & products' forum, lots of threads on clamps in there.

    Can any of you lads throw light on why the Alphatek TEK633 died. I got 4 of these out here for my lads and they are great, I tried at Christmas to get another 2 and no one stocked them now.

    Use a TIS 550 and seems to be spot on as long as you remember to switch it off when putting it away !

    I was recommended to purchase the Dialog and I do not regret it at all, worth every penny and paid for itself already.

    Yes, not had the MD 9270 that long and not had the need to explore the advanced functions yet, but I'm pleased with it. It will give a nice stable measurement of small currents (a couple of mA) in a wire with much higher currents in adjacent cables. It doesn't seem to be affected by the positioning of the wire in the clamp either. Also gives a stable measurement of differential current in, for example, a pair of 25mm² meter tails. So I would say a quality piece of kit.

    Only problem so far is finding space in a DB to actually fit the clamp round, say, the L & N of a circuit to measure differential current. But that would apply to any clamp meter. You certainly don't want to get something with a clamp that's physically bigger than necessary to do the job.

    All this praise of the Di-log DL6507, mine died today when it was needed. Anyone else had any problems with it? It won't display anything, and all it seems able to do is bleep:nopity:
