I picked up a set of screwdrivers from a petrol station and in the kit is a
little testing screwdriver.
It has a little LCD type screen on it and two terminals.
The terminals are labelled thus:
Inductance Break-Point Test.
The screen reads from 12V to 220V.
I understand the Direct Test is a voltage test, giving the potential
difference between the item I test and myself.
I also understand Inductance is the 'electrical field' around a thing that
has potential to pass current without direct contact. Does the 'Inductance
Break-Point Test' then tell me the potential around the wire etc. and if so
what does the 'Break-Point' refer to?
thanks in advance
