Compact Circuit Tester Improves Marine Safety

Posted by Michelle Howard

While conventional 3-wire grounding is essential to electrical safety on a boat, minute faults can still occur that don't activate protective devices such as fuses or breakers. Hubbell Marine's innovative HBL5200 outlet circuit tester identifies a wide range of wiring problems to help prevent dangerous electrical situations.


The compact HBL5200 tester simply plugs into a standard residential-style single phase, 125V, 2-pole 3-wire outlet. A series of neon light combinations indicate specific circuit conditions. It can identify correct wiring, reversed polarity, hot terminal unwired, hot and ground reversed and hot wire on neutral terminal, as well as an open ground, neutral or hot wire.


A guide to understanding the neon light codes is permanently attached to the tester on a durable polyester label. It also contains full operating instructions, making the device a handy, portable safety tool.


UL-approved and with a capacity of up to 2,000 amperes, the HBL5200 also works with a variety of adapters to test other 2-pole 3-wire single phase 125V outlet configurations. The MSRP is $55.00.
