Press Release from CLIFF Electronics, 18th October 2016.


Quality electrical test lead sets from CLIFF Electronics now available from major electrical wholesalers and distributors

Cliff test lead range now available from electrical wholesalers and distributors

CLIFF Electronics manufactures test leads for a number of market-leading electrical test equipment OEMs and is now making a wide range of test leads available direct to electrical contractors and electrical test and repair facilities through major electrical wholesalers and distributors.


In response to increasing numbers of enquiries for replacements and types of lead sets not available from other suppliers, Cliff now offer end users a comprehensive range of standard test lead sets and are happy to provide custom solutions where required.


Cliff’s research into the third party test leads currently available in the replacement market has shown that there are wide variations in the quality of manufacture and reliability. Cliff is offering high quality, professional products manufactured to the same specifications and standards that they supply to their OEM test instrument customers.


John Hall, General Manager of CLIFF Electronics, comments; “As a major designer and manufacturer of test lead sets supplied with many well-known brands of test meters, as well as major suppliers to popular brands of after-market test lead sets, selling our own products direct to end users via major wholesalers is a logical step. The wholesale outlets and distributors stocking our test leads will provide end users with convenient in-branch availability and 24/7 online ordering.”.


Test leads are predominately used by electrical test and safety portable appliance testers, electrical contractors and test and repair houses. In recognition of this, Cliff takes great care in ensuring their test lead products are fully rated for all aspects of BS EN IEC 61010, particularly with regard to voltage and current ratings, creepage distances, cable specification and insulation ratings. All Cliff products are marked with CAT ratings where required.


All Cliff test leads use high quality silicone cables 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.


As well as the price advantage of buying direct from the manufacturer, Cliff offers customers the opportunity to increase their sales by offering a full test lead range which meets the needs of many brands of test equipment for contractors, PV solar installers and PAT users.


As the original manufacturer, Cliff can also offer customised branding or labeling and manufacture any other type of test lead sets to meet local or unique requirements.


Wholesalers, distributors and customers are all assured that Cliff test lead sets are manufactured using the same double insulated silicone cable, components, tolerances and standards which are supplied to OEM customers.


All Cliff test lead sets and components are manufactured in our own ISO 9001 certified factories, (including in the UK). They exceed all relevant safety specifications such as BS EN IEC 61010, and are RoHS / REACH compliant.


All Cliff test lead sets are packaged in reusable plastic pouches designed for efficient trade counter display.
