Extech Wireless AC Circuit Identifier with External Probe
The Extech Wireless Remote AC Circuit Identifier combines non-contact voltage and light detection with radio frequency transmission technology.
- Combines non-contact voltage detection with wireless signals
- Transmitter signals user at the breaker panel with LED and audible alerts
- Easily identify lighting and outlet circuits with the built-in light sensor
|RT30||Wireless AC circuit identifier with external probe, 914MHz|
|Usually ships in 1-2 weeks|
The Extech Wireless Remote AC Circuit Identifier enables a single user to identify mid-run wires and to find the breaker that powerrs a circuit or light fixture without having to connect directly to the wires in the cable. The meter combines non-contact voltage detection with wirelss signals to monitor and remotely report the presence of voltage on a wire.
Clamped onto a live wire, the transmitter signals the user at the breaker panel with LED and audible alerts on the receiver at up to a 100 meter range. The alerts stop when the correct circuit breaker is switched and work can be performed safely. The identifier eliminates the need for an assistant or back-and-forth trips to confirm that the correct circuit is powered down. This tool is ideal for electricians, plumbers, general contractors, kitchen and bath remodelers, and lighting installers.

Time is of the essence when it comes to tracking algal blooms, and people everywhere are looking for solutions. In Florida, scientists from Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) recently trialed a solar-powered, algae-tracking sail boat developed by Navocean , Inc. Dr. Jordon Beckler of Florida Atlantic University (FAU) directs HBOI's Geochemistry and Geochemical Sensing Lab and spoke to EM about the trials and the boat.
"This boat is so amazing when you see it in action," remarks Dr. Beckler. "Navocean originally contacted me a few years back about a demonstration when I was over at my previous institution in West Florida, and we brainstormed some scenarios for employing the boat for harmful algae bloom monitoring.Read More
CICHAZ Biological Field Station Provides A Unique Educational and Research Experience in Mexico’s Huasteca Region
The story of the Centro de Investigaciones Científicas de las Huastecas "Aguazarca" (CICHAZ) Biological Field Station, a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations ( OBFS ), starts with Dr. Gil Rosenthal, Professor of Biology and Chair of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Texas A &; M University . Rosenthal has worked in the Huasteca region of Mexico since 1994 and for years kept his research equipment at a local ranch/hotel with the dream of one day having a field station where he could run experiments with collaborators and students. Since 2005, Rosenthal has been the Co-Director of the field station along with his wife, Dr.Read More
For as long as scientists have been studying the ocean, they have been limited by a lack of power. However, recent work from researchers at the University of Washington (UW) offers a promising new way to harvest energy from waves at sea. UW associate professor of mechanical engineering Brian Polagye spoke to EM about a recent project that used wave energy to power one of UW’s Adaptable Monitoring Packages, or AMPs.
“Our work in this area has really been ongoing since about 2012,” explains Dr. Polagye. “We put our first prototype AMP in the water back in 2015. Since then, it’s been going through successive evolutions, variations on the package.Read More
