LOWELL, Ark., Aug. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Purkeys, a company focused on providing electrical solutions for the heavy-duty trucking industry, has developed an electrical tool kit that has everything a technician needs to test and diagnose a variety of electrical issues on heavy-duty vehicles.
"We put a lot thought into this and made a good kit that will give a technician all the tools they need to do their job properly," said Larry Rambeaux Purkeys national truck and fleet representative.
The Purkeys Electrical Tool Kit is an all-in-one package that comes with a heavy-duty industrial multimeter, a wide-range mini IR thermometer, a bead wire type K temperature probe, a mini DC clamp-on ammeter, and general purpose test leads.
The multimeter is what technicians will use the most out of all the tools in the kit. It is a voltmeter, ammeter, and ohmmeter. Technicians can use this tool for a variety of applications including continuity checks, diode checks, capacity checks, and more.
Purkeys Clip-on Ammeter was designed with one purpose, to be an extremely accurate and dependable ammeter that any technician can easily use. It has a 40-amp scale and 400-amp scale. The limits of this device are well suited for any measurements being taken from the truck or trailer.
An infrared gun is a very handy tool for technicians. It is useful for load tests on batteries because modern battery testers require temperature input. Without a device like Purkeys infrared gun, a technician would have to estimate the temperature, which would through off all their measurements.
For more than 25 years, Purkeys has delivered innovative, cost-effective solutions for the electrical needs of heavy-duty fleets. They look at the electrical system as a whole, then strategically work to achieve the maximum return on investment while reducing maintenance costs and equipment usage. Their level of expertise has garnered more than 10 U.S. patents and attracted the attention of fleets, OEMs and other industry leaders throughout North America.
