Multimeter leads are wires used with analogue and digital multimeters for testing and identifying problems. Multimeter leads are used for the testing of electrical components and circuits. They can be used to measure voltage, current and resistance. Test leads feature a connector, such as a jack, to connect to the multimeter and another connector for testing, such as a probe, crocodile clip or banana plug. Multimeter test leads are considered an essential part of electrical measurement.
Test leads must be in good condition. If the test leads are faulty, this can lead to inaccurate readings and could result in a health and safety concern if live wires are being read as being de-energised. Therefore it is important to keep your test leads in good condition and replace them when necessary. A lead kit for measuring high voltage and high energy circuits, such as distribution system voltages (240V- 600V), needs to be high quality, with the proper markings and product ratings. You should always take precautionary steps to verify the condition and rating of the leads before testing to ensure safety in the workplace.
We have a range of available connector types to suit your needs, including crocodile clips, banana plugs, angled plugs and retractable plugs, as well as application-specific kits, such as automotive, electrical and industrial kits.
We also offer a variety of Multimeters & Accessories for all your testing needs.
