Purkey’s offers handheld preventative maintenance tool

Purkey’s Fleet Electric introduces its Handheld Electrical Analyzer, which the company says allows technicians to quickly and easily test the electrical systems of heavy-duty vehicles from the palm of their hand. The portability and light-weight design of the Handheld Electrical Analyzer allows technicians to use it in the field or in the shop to perform proper preventative maintenance. Optimized for AGM and flooded cell batteries, this device can record its testing history with printable results. The Handheld Electrical Analyzer has multiple leads to conduct preventative maintenance checks, battery tests, and more. It can apply 40 to 120 amps for automated load tests while testing for voltage drop.
