ENGLISH
SYMBOLS ON TESTER:
Warning. Risk of electric shock.
Risk of danger. Important information: It is important that users of this tester read, understand, and follow all
warnings, cautions, safety information, and instructions in this manual before operating or servicing this tester. Failure
to follow instructions could result in death or serious injury.
Double Insulated.
CAT IV Equipment is designed to protect against transients from the primary supply level.
(i.e. - electricity meter or overhead/ underground utility service).
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS:
Modes of operation:
The NCVT-2 can operate as a dual range (NCVT-2 mode) or single range (NCVT-1 mode) tester. In NCVT-2 mode, the
tester will light a steady blue LED in the tip to indicate power-on and dual range mode. In NCVT-1 mode, the tester will
light a steady green LED in the tip to indicate power-on and single range mode.
Turn unit on:
Press and hold the power button for ½ second, then release. Listen for single-beep sound and watch for a steady green
or blue LED to illuminate in the tip of the tester. The tester is now activated and is operational. Test on known live circuit
to verify tester functionality. See Silent mode for additional power-on options.
Turn unit off:
Press and hold the power button for ½ second then release. Listen for a double-beep sound and watch the green or
blue LED turn off. The tester is now deactivated and is not operational.
System self-test:
The “power on” blue or green LED visually confirms battery sufficiency, system integrity, and operation/active mode.
Always test on known live circuit to verify tester functionality prior to use.
Changing operation modes:
While the unit is powered on, press and hold the power button for 2 seconds. The unit will beep 3 times and the power-on LED will
switch from blue to green or green to blue. The tester will start in whichever mode it was last powered off in.
Checking for the presence of AC voltage:
Prior to use, test on known live circuit to verify tester functionality. Place tip of the tester near an AC voltage and refer
to the tables below for each mode:
NCVT-2 mode:
POWER-ON
12 TO 48 VOLTS AC
48 TO 1000 VOLTS AC
Audible
Single Beep
Low-Pitched Pulsing Beeping Sound
High-Pitched Continuous Beeping Sound
Visual
Steady Blue LED
Blue LED Turns OFF and Red LED Blinks
(approximately 2-times per second).
Blue LED Turns OFF and Red LED
illuminates continuously.
NCVT-1 mode:
POWER-ON
12 TO 48 VOLTS AC
48 TO 1000 VOLTS AC
Audible
Single Beep
No Sound
High-Pitched Continuous Beeping Sound
Visual
Steady Green LED
Steady Green LED
Green LED Turns OFF and Red LED
illuminates continuously.
In NCVT-2 mode, the tester will be more sensitive and will show voltage indication at a further distance away from a
high voltage source than in NCVT-1 mode. Use NCVT-1 mode in situations where you expect the voltage source will
be greater than 48V AC.
Low battery indication:
Scenario 1 – Powering on the tester: The “power on” LED in the tip of the tester changes from a steady green or blue to a
blinking green or blue and a series of beeping sounds is generated. The tester then turns off. The unit is now deactivated
and is not operational, the batteries require replacement. To replace the tester batteries refer to the Maintenance section
titled “Battery Replacement.”
Scenario 2 – Operating the tester: If the LED lights dim and the tone fades, the tester may require new batteries. To
replace the tester batteries refer to the Maintenance section titled “Battery Replacement.”
Auto Power Off:
After 4 minutes of non-use, the tester automatically powers off to conserve battery life. Listen for a double-beep
sound and watch the “power on” LED turn off. The tester is now deactivated and is not operational.
Silent mode:
The tester can be operated with only visual indication of voltage. With the tester powered off, press and hold the
power button for 2 seconds then release.

MAINTENANCE:
Battery Replacement:
• Orient the tool/tester with the pocket-clip facing you.
• Gently depress the tab, Fig. 2, until you can slide the end-cap off the main body of the tester.
• Remove the batteries using caution to prevent damage or injury to the internal components.
• Replace with two 1.5V AAA or LR03 or NEDA 24A batteries.
• Place batteries into tester with the positive terminals facing the tip, Fig. 3.
• Carefully align and slide the end-cap to the body of the tester, Fig. 4. Push the cap
until it is fully seated (denoted by a clicking sound), Fig. 4.
• Note: Hold pocket-clip on cap close to tester body while sliding cap onto tester.
• Test on known live circuit to verify tester functionality.
Cleaning Tester:
• Tester contains sensitive electronic components; do not submerse in liquid.
• Do not use alcohol, ammonia or cleaners containing solvents to clean tester.
• Gently wipe the tester with Klein Kleaners® (CAT. # 51425 or 51426), a damp cloth or a cloth containing a mild
cleaning solution.
• Make sure the tester is completely dry prior to operation.
DISPOSAL:
• Do not throw depleted batteries away; please recycle properly.
• Do not throw tester away, please recycle properly.
• Please see www.epa.gov or www.erecycle.org for additional information.
WARRANTY
Klein electronic test and measurement devices (and accessories), manufactured and sold for commercial or industrial uses, are
warranted to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for two years from the date of purchase (unless otherwise noted
on the product packaging). THERE ARE NO IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTIBILITY OR FITNESS. At its option, Klein
will repair or replace, or refund the purchase price of, any product which fails to conform to this warranty under normal use and

CAUTION:
• Do not attempt to repair this tester. It contains no serviceable parts.
• Do not expose the product to extremes in temperature or high humidity.
WARNINGS:
• It is important that users of this tester read, understand, and follow all warnings, cautions, safety information, and instructions
in this manual before operating or servicing this tester. Failure to follow instructions could result in death or serious injury.
• Risk of electric shock and burn. Contact with live circuits could result in death or serious injury.
• Use caution with voltages above 30V AC as a shock hazard may exist.
• A blinking or steady red glow and an audible beep indicate voltage present. If no indication, voltage could still be present.
• Before and after each use, verify operation by testing a known working circuit that is within the rating of this unit.
• Never assume neutral or ground wires are de-energized.
• The tester WILL NOT detect voltage if:
• the wire is shielded.
• the operator is not grounded or is otherwise isolated from an effective earth ground.
• the voltage is DC.
• The tester MAY NOT detect voltage if:
• the user is not holding the tester.
• the user is insulated from the tester with a glove or other materials.
• the wire is partially buried or in a grounded metal conduit.
• the tester is at a distance from the voltage source.
• the field created by the voltage source is being blocked, dampened, or otherwise interfered with.
• the frequency of the voltage is not a perfect sine wave between 50 and 500Hz.
• the tester is outside of operation conditions (listed in Specifications section).
• Operation may be affected by differences in socket design and insulation thickness and type.
• In bright light conditions, the LED visual indicators will be less visible.
• Do not use if "power on" LED is not illuminated.
• Do not use if tester appears damaged or if the tester is not operating properly. If in doubt, replace the tester.
• Do not apply more than the rated voltage as marked on the tester (1000 volts AC).
• Detection above 12V is specified under "normal" conditions as specified below. The tester may detect at a different threshold
at different conditions, or may not detect at all unless:
• The tip of the tester is within 0.25" of an AC voltage source radiating unimpeded.
• The user is holding the body of the tester with his or her bare hand.
• The user is standing on or connected to earth ground.
• The air humidity is nominal (50% relative humidity).
