CATU C'Diag The Award Winning Continuity Tester - NEW PRODUCT LAUNCH










T&D are the UK's largest stockist and supplier of the CATU Electrical Safety Equipment, protecting cable jointers, lineman, electrical engineers and substation workers.

CATU's C'diag Touch continuity tester is specifically designed for electrical engineers and contractors taking measurements for the compulsory tests of low voltage facilities in the commercial and industrial sectors.

At the 20th Mesures Magazine Technology Awards held on 1st October 2015, CATU's C'Diag Touch was awarded in the category of Electrical / Electronical Instrumentation.

Mesures magazine is a technical journal focused on automation and application systems. Mesures annual Technology Awards rewards only the most innovative instruments and solutions.

Catu C Diag Continuity Tester

CATU C'Diag continuity tester has an integrated test-lead point and can be used single handedly due to the testers ergonomic and lightweight design.

A TFT screen provides a clear and simple display for readings which changes from green to red should the detected continuity resistance exceed the conformity threshold.

An additional audible alarm triggers in the event of dangerous voltage being detected to warn the user, who can then take all the necessary precautionary measures.

The CATU C'Diag is powered by 2 x 1.5V batteries which can provide up to 15,000 tests before needing to be replaced.

CATU's C'Diag Touch is available alone or with its additional main unit for isolation testing which can be connected wirelessly allowing for safe remote measurement.

The CP-100B base features IP2X connection terminals and provides optimised storage. It also features shock absorbing bumpers to help protect the C'Diag continuity tester.
