1937AC Line Splitter
The AC line splitter is a helpful testing device for electrician. Electrician can measure the current with clamp meter through the X1 and X10 measuring rings. X1 is 1:1 measurement, and X10 is ten times (1:10) of the actual current, which is helpful for small current measurement. This device also combines the function of socket tester and GFCI tester, which means electrician can use this tester to test socket and load at the same time.
- Detect faulty wiring in 3 wire receptacle.
- Test for GFCI receptacle for proper operation, 110-125V circuits.
- Various combinations of three lights tell if wiring is correct or six possible faulty conditions.
- Measure the current with clamp meter through the X1 and X10.

A. CURRENT MEASUREMENT
1. Plug the Line Splitter into the 120V socket.
2. Plug the electrical device to the Line Splitter.
3. Clamp the clamp meter around the Current Measurement Ring (X1 or X10)
4. If clamp around the X1 ring, the reading from the clamp meter is the actual current value.
5. If Clamp around the X10 ring, the reading from the clamp meter divided by 10 is the actual current value.
B. VOLTAGE MEASUREMENT
1. Plug the Line Splitter into the 120V socket
2. Connect the testing probes of the voltage meter to the Voltage Measurement Points.
3. Reading from the voltage meter is the actual voltage.
C. RECEPTACLE TEST
2. Refer all indicated problems to a qualified electrician.
3. Lights will indicate circuit condition:
4. The tester will not indicate the quality of the ground connection, 2hot wires in a circuit, a combination of defects, a combination of defects, or reversal of ground and neutral conductors.
D. GFCI TEST
1. Before using the tester, press the TEST button on the installed GFCI receptacle, the GFCI should trip. If it does not, do not use the circuit and call a qualified electrician. If it does trip, press the RESET button on the receptacle and plug in the tester.
2. Verify that the wiring is correct.
3. Press and hold the test button on the tester for at least 6 seconds, the indicator lights on the tester will shut off when the GFCI trips.
4. If the circuit does not trip, either the GFCI is operable but the wiring is incorrect, or the wiring is correct and the GFCI is inoperable.
5. When testing a GFCI installed in a 2-wire (non-grounded) system, the tester may indicate a faulty GFCI.
6. GFCI test current is 6~9mA.
