Cliff 1kV crocodile clip, test reel, test lead set with vinyl pouch and branded inlay


CLIFF Electronics is a leading manufacturer of electrical test lead sets and has been supplying a number of market-leading, electrical test equipment OEMs for many years. An extended range of test leads and accessories is now available direct to end users via major distributors and electrical wholesalers.


Standard test lead sets manufactured by Cliff cover a very wide range, designed for specific end users including installation contractors, portable appliance testers (PAT), repair and calibration practitioners and PV solar installers. They are supplied in long-lasting, vinyl, storage pouches.


The Cliff electrical test product range includes leads, probes, sockets, crocodile clips and accessories for OEMs, engineers and technicians. Support is for a wide range of test, design, calibration, repair and installation applications. Cliff offers a very successful, total design and manufacturing service for OEM test meter manufacturers, including customised customized branding and labeling if required.


The latest introduction to the Cliff test product range is a new crocodile clip rated 1 kV at 20 A for connecting test equipment to high voltage systems. This can be supplied separately or combined with a standard or custom OEM test lead set. Cliff’s existing wide range of standard crocodile clips includes types for telecommunications and data test applications, including BON and 2 mm products.


Other products available include the acclaimed Cliff Quicktest modules which allow the efficient, safe, temporary connection of stripped appliance conductors to mains supplies. Modules are available for 240 V single-phase or 440 V three-phase power sources. Connection of cables to the Quickest takes just a few seconds. Opening the lid automatically isolates the supply, allowing safe insertion of each stripped cable end by pressing the colour-coded piano key cable clamps. Closing the lid completes the circuit between the device being tested and the power. Opening the lid again isolates the supply source so the cable conductors can be rapidly removed.


Cliff also manufactures long-life, high-reliability, cable test reels for professional R2 earth-bond ground continuity-testing; field-proven to be compatible with a very wide variety of test meter brands and available in standard lengths of 30m and 50m.


As test lead sets are predominately used by electrical safety PAT testers, electrical contractors and test repair houses, Cliff ensures their test lead products are fully rated for all aspects of BS EN IEC 61010, particularly with regard to voltage, current, creepage distances, cable specification and insulation. All Cliff products are marked with CAT ratings where required. Test leads use high quality cable with two 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.


John Hall, General Manager of CLIFF Electronics, comments; “In response to increasing numbers of enquiries for replacement test leads and lead sets not available from other suppliers, we will continue to grow our range of test lead sets and accessories. All of our test lead sets are high quality, professional products manufactured to the same specifications and standards that we supply to our international OEM test instrument customers.”.


All Cliff test lead sets and components are manufactured in our own ISO 9001 certified factories and are RoHS / REACH compliant.
