The Extech Non-Contact AC Voltage and Current Detector is a two-in-one current/voltage detector designed for electrical testing. The detector measures non-contact AC current from 200mA to 1000A and non-contact AC voltage from 12V to 600VAC. The sensitivity adjustments are to increase or reduce sensor trigger threshold. A loud audible and bright visible indicator will alert users if a current or voltage is detected. The curent sensor detects current flow of 400mA at 0.2" distance and at much greater distances for larger current flows.
Applications include detecting trace concelead wires in walls and floors, identifying hot spots, tracing current flow behind walls, in conduit, where voltage detection does not work, and tripping on low voltage HVAC or similar signal levels.

Researchers in Quebec are taking underwater photos to get a fish-eye view of lake-shaping aquatic plants. They’re proving the use of a technique that could expand the study of plant populations that impact everything from a lake’s plankton and fish populations to its water levels.
Photo analysis could replace more expensive and labor-intensive methods.
“If you want to have good data, you have to dive and collect plants and dry them and weigh them,” said Andrea Bertolo, a professor of environmental science at the University of Quebec at Trois-Rivières . Soon, anyone with an underwater camera and a selfie stick could be contributing to this valuable science.Read More
In Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, pollution and runoff from storms and snowmelt are getting the close look they deserve, and there’s much more to examine.
Weather, from heavy spring storms to long months of snow and freezing temperatures, makes the polluting potential of runoff and snowmelt greater than and different from warmer climate cities, said Garry Codling in an email. In Saskatoon, potentially harmful elements in runoff can exceed the guidelines for runoff set by the Canadian government.Read More
Appalachia may be as closely associated with mining as it is to anything else. That close relationship will leave its mark on the area’s streams long after the last mine closes.
A nine-year study recently published in Science of the Total Environment shows that long after mining activity stops and the land is left to heal, streams and stream life are slow to recover.
“We could be really fine point and say that some of them seem to be recovering very, very slowly,” said Carl Zipper, professor emeritus of environmental science at Virginia Tech University . Most of the streams studied didn’t show signs of recovery.Read More
