What are the defects?

Both the ACD-10 and ACD-14 models "lock up" in certain circumstances failing to properly measure hazardous voltage levels on electrical systems. When the clamp meter locks up it provides readings under 1 volt or a millivolt reading. If the user does not follow industry standard practice by verifying the tester before and after checking the circuit, he/she may believe there is no voltage present when in fact there is.

What are the hazards?

Electrocution
