    I need a Non Contact, Prefer 80-600 Volt voltage tester. AC testers are the norm in all the places I've tried, But I need DC = Direct Current.

    If you can help a part # and phone # of place to order would be great. Thanks, Richard

    Thanks folks, I have sent some E-mails and am hoping Graingers will have most of these in stock or MSC as a second choice. I would like to personally see one before ordering.

    My purpose for these is to determine if downed powerlines are "hot". I have one that is AC only, But there are 600 volt DC overhead bus lines in the city that are sometimes knocked down. Richard
