HUBBELL CIRCUIT TESTER VERIFIES CONNECTIONS WITH EASE

Hubbell Circuit TesterChecking shorepower connections for proper wiring can be time-consuming, especially when working in dimly-lit or difficult-to-access locations. An innovative UL- and CL-listed Twist-Lock Circuit Tester from Hubbell Marine speeds this process by using simple LED visual codes to indicate electrical circuit conditions.

The patented, compact design of the HBLT26CM11 Twist-Lock Circuit Tester closely resembles a standard Hubbell Twist-Lock Plug. Once inserted into a 30A/125V receptacle, its LED back panel immediately displays whether the circuit is complete and properly wired.
