According to Amprobe's literature, the Amprobe INSP-3 Wiring Inspector Tester is designed to verify building wiring compliance to electrical code, especially voltage drop under load and inspectors can used this device to identify issues with splices, connections and conductor quality crucial to safety and performance of the electrical system.

Priced at about $80 of what one pays now for a discounted SureTest 61-164 or 61-165, this is an appealing alternative to the offering from Ideal Industries.

  • Testing efficiency - relevant test data (voltage, voltage drop, hot and neutral voltage drop, voltage with load, ground impedance) is presented on a single large display to save operator time - no scrolling or switching screens needed
  • Verifies if wiring is tested for load carrying ability that it meets electrical code recommendations for voltage drop under load
  • Meter detects faulty wiring in need of repair without removing outlets cover plates, or panel covers: Faulty splices and connections, Incorrect wiring, Undersized wiring, Faulty GFCIs, Faulty or incorrectly wired AFCIs, Incorrect line voltage and Poor ground quality.
  • User selectable 0, 10, 15 and 20 amps loads to verify performance of the electrical system.
  • Incorrect wiring or voltage drop test failure is clearly indicated by flashing screen
  • Will not trip circuit breakers or blow fuses during the test
  • Tests GFCI and AFCI operations
  • Checks ground quality for safety and ability to support sensitive electronic equipment
  • Measures fault currents
  • Saves money and time by eliminating guess work
  • Instruction Manual
Amprobe INSP-3 Wiring Inspector Tester Specifications:
  • Load Constant - 0, 10, 15 or 20 AMP simulation regardless of line voltage
  • Operating Voltage - 95-140 VAC plus/minus 2 percent, plus/minus 2 digits
  • GFI Trip - 6.0 mA nominal to trip GFI, 30 mA to trip RCD
  • AFCI Trip - Up to 8, 120 AMP pulses within 1/2 second period
