The Sanwa KP1 is a pocket-size Voltage Tester with an accuracy of 0.7% and electric field detection capabilities.

The KP-1 is a voltage tester of the RMS value response type equipped with the electric field detection facility. It is designed for measurements in the ranges specified by IEC 61010-1 CAT. IV 600 V and CAT. III 1000 V. It uses the Δ-Σ method operation and uses the True RMS detection method for AC voltages. The device has a single button operation mode and can automatically detect AC and DC voltages.

The KP1 has a 9999-count display with a backlight that changes color from green to orange depending on the voltage. The device can also perform continuity tests and features a buzzer alarm that can be used for both continuity and electric field detection. This device can detect an electric field of about 60 Volts or more with a detection frequency of 50/60 Hz, which is perfect for power lines. The bar graph and intermittent buzzer beeps change in 5 steps according to the field intensity.

The red probe on this device is fixed on a rotatable arm while the black probe lead is connected via a cable and can move freely. The red probe can also be used as an antenna for detecting electric field strength.

Includes meter, instruction manual and one set of test leads and probes.
