1029 Vacuum Assist

Frustrated by optical pickups and probes that do not stay attached to meter covers? We have a solution! TESCO’s Vacuum Assist actively generates a vacuum that attaches your TESCO optical pickup or probe to the meter and allows hands-free use for the meter tech. No more wasted time during testing or communication work when the pickup or probe falls off.

TESCO’s Vacuum Assist (Cat. 1029) uses a small, quiet USB or battery powered vacuum pump to securely hold pickups and probes in place.

The Vacuum Assist can be used with TESCO’s Cat. 1037-STND or 1037-DTS Optical Pickups and TESCO’s Cat. 1038 Optical Probe.  A convenient carrying case (Cat. 901) is also available that will fit the Vacuum Assist and accessories.
