A continuity tester is a tool that can be used to test for voltage, resistance and other electrical properties. Continuity testers are often used on live networks in order to detect faults in the wiring. While this may sound like a good idea, it isn’t as safe as many people believe. In this blog post we will discuss ten reasons why you should not use a continuity tester on your live network segment. This is a very inefficient way to test your network. It can take upwards of five minutes per cable segment for the continuity tester to complete its work and this will greatly increase downtime when you are trying to troubleshoot an issue. This device will only work on pairs of wires at one time, meaning that it has potential to miss any faults in other segments or cables because each pair must be tested individually., Continuity testers cannot detect most of the common wiring errors like shorts or opens. There have been cases where electrical equipment was not working due to faulty wiring but instead all tests came back clean using a continuity tester so they were never fixed properly until later., A lot of times there is voltage present on live networks which
