Product overview

Always on for faster, safer voltage testing

2AC is the latest addition to the VoltAlert™ AC non-contact voltage tester family from Fluke and is designed to be pocket-sized and easy to use. The 2AC tests for energized circuits and defective grounds, whether it's for an electrician on the factory floor or the do-it-yourselfer around the house. The tip of the pocket-sized tester will glow red when within close proximity of an outlet, terminal strip, or power cord where voltage is present.

Customer Reviews From Fluke

Great Meter for Electricians and DIYer's
I purchased the 117 based on reviews and the Fluke reputation; it is my third digital multimeter and second Fluke (the other is a clamp DMM I use mostly for testing amperage). Despite the ambiguous complaints posted by others, this is a solid multimeter. The large 6,000 count display makes the meter easy-to-read and understand; as long as you are looking directly at the screen. My only (minor) complaint is if the screen is looked at - even slightly - from above, the digits disappear, but for me this is only a minor inconvenience.

The meter feels solid and robust in the hands and not easily damaged. The non-contact voltage sensor is very sensitive, especially when set to "HI", which makes it ideal when checking for electrical wires inside of walls.

I have zero "buyer's remorse" and will use this meter for a long time.

I have used the 2-AC non contact voltage tester for over ten years. Even after repeated drops and bumps they keep on working. I have never had one that didn't detect voltage when there was voltage in the circuit. Sometimes the tester shows voltage when there is none but that just means I need to double check with my meter- which happens to be the fluke T+Pro electrical tester. It's a tough pair to beat.
