CLIFF Electronics has been manufacturing test leads for electrical test equipment OEMs for many years and is now making a wide range of test leads available direct to end users via major electrical wholesalers nationwide. The move comes in response to an increasing number of enquiries for replacement test leads and enquiries for types of lead sets not available from other suppliers.
While investigating the range of third party test leads currently available in the replacement market Cliff has noted there are wide variations in quality of manufacture and reliability. Cliff are looking to offer very high quality professional products manufactured to the same specifications and standards that they supply to their OEM Test Instrument customers
Commenting John Hall, General Manager of Cliff Electronics, said; “As a major designer and manufacturer of test lead sets supplied with many well-known brands of test meters, as well as major suppliers to popular brands of after-market test lead sets, selling our own products direct to end users via major wholesalers is a very logical step. We are also very pleased to announce that with immediate effect our test lead range will be available from City Electrical Factors, one of the largest electrical wholesalers in the UK and will soon also be available from more of our major distributors worldwide”
Test Leads are predominately used by electrical test and safety PAT testers, electrical contractors and test and repair houses. In recognition of this Cliff takes great care in ensuring their test lead products are fully rated for all aspects of IEC61010, particularly with regard to voltage and current ratings, creepage distances and cable specification and insulation ratings. All Cliff products are marked with CAT ratings where required.
All Cliff test leads use high quality silicone cable with 2 layers of insulation designed so that the white under-layer becomes visible if the outer becomes damaged. This provides a visual alert to the user of a potential safety hazard.
As the original manufacturer Cliff will also be able to offer customers customised branding and labelling if required, and undertake the manufacture of any other type of test lead sets to meet local or unique requirements.
Wholesalers, distributors and customers are all assured that Cliff test lead sets are manufactured using the same double insulated silicone cable, components, tolerances and standards which are supplied to OEM customers.
All Cliff test lead sets and components are manufactured in our own ISO9001:2008 certified factories (including the UK), exceed all relevant safety specifications such as EN601010, and are RoHS compliant.
