The TA007 Insulation Piercing Test Clip set is ideally suited for automotive test and diagnosis. The piercing clips allow the user to provide the exact pressure needed to pierce the insulation of a wide range of wire types and sizes. The clips also feature a rotating banana jack that prevents the test lead from twisting and keeps the oscilloscope in the circuit while the wire is pierced, providing immediate confirmation that contact with the conductor has been made.
Supplied as a set of 2, one red and one black
Intended for making temporary connections in the field, the test clips feature a safety-rated shrouded banana jack that is compatible with virtually all industry-standard banana plugs, including digital multimeter plugs with or without safety shrouds. Designed with a retractable pin and a wire-centering mechanism that securely cradles the wire regardless of size, the clips attach easily onto plastic, Teflon or silicone insulated wires using a spring-loaded double-V clamp. Wire contact is made as the screw-in barrel drives the sharp piercing point through the insulation, allowing it to make contact with the conductor. The clip is small enough to access individual wires in large bundles and sturdy enough to last in severe service. With a variety of applications in mind, the clip is designed for use with a wide range of wire sizes from tiny 0.060-inch diameter (22 AWG) to large .200-inch diameter (10 AWG).
The TA007 also provides a number of other outstanding features. Uniquely designed to provide both cost-savings and convenience, it can be quickly disassembled to expose the piercing tip for any required sharpening, extending product life and eliminating the need to completely replace the test clip as with other models on the market.
The Test Clip provides further convenience with its "leave in-line" capability. Once the Test Clip has been attached to the wire, the test lead can be removed from the clip for testing at another location. Red and black color-coded barrels provide fast circuit identification, and the bright yellow body allows for easy location in low light situations.
The Adjustable Insulation Piercing Clips are compatible with most test leads that use shrouded B-plug or standard B-plugs.
The TA007 probe can be connected to the automotive oscilloscope using any BNC to 4 mm test lead.
RATCHET+WRENCH recently published an article based on our WPS500X pressure transducer. Starring Matt Fanslow, of Riverside Automotive in Redwing, the article is a great read for anyone considering the purchase of our product. As Fanslow says. “There’s nothing on the market that comes close to it.”.
