Coil Tester

coil tester

I always interested in test equipment and i found this photo from one of the website in google. From the photo it is written as Arrow coil tester but internet search did not reveal any result. I’m not sure what type of coil it can test but most probably this coil tester is meant for the automobile ignition coil¬† (by looking at the thick probes). Well, if you are creative enough you can use it to test on variety of coils which include coils in the consumer electronics. If you have any info on this coil tester please give your comment below-thanks!

    HI JESTINE

    this is not meger or insulation tester this is like dc volt meter why?:
    1- one of the prob is red that must connect to + side of coil
    2- another one is black must be connect to - negative side
    3- also i can see on the range of meter 5 10 15 and from 20 up to 30
    indicated that is green and good voltage
    this must be voltmeter
    thanx

    ok this test the voltages of coil under operation and indicate that
    best voltage is between 20up to 30 in green zone this must be specialized for special coil with specific voltages should not be
    car because car working with 12 volts but bigger cars have bigger working voltages or may be is good for some sort of electronics
    in navy or military

    Hello,

    I have this meter! It is for testing how good the ignition coil is. It is part of a kit for testing pre electronic car ignition. Kit includes dwell meter and timing strobe. I have lost the instructions on how to use it.

    HI Sean,

    Thanks and did you use it to test on coils in flyback, transformer and yoke coils? Is it accurate?
