Hi all,
I'm upgrading my test cables and connectors from the cheap and nasty to ones with higher levels of safety. Not sure what they are called but I'm looking for connectors with sprung coupling grips and long insulated extensions; and cables that are appropriate for amplifier voltage. Can someone please tell me which are the better makes and where do I get them? Thanks.

Cheers
Pat

Element14, to name one supplier, has a range of test probe sets, however the cable quality and voltage capacity varies directly with price. Fluke brand is probably top of the range. Here are a couple of lower priced examples:

Hi GTC,

The leads and connectors came yesterday, very quick! I ended up getting the Fluke as I have a Fluke 115. Expensive but good gear and very happy with Element14.

Thanks again.

Cheers
Pat
