Can this product detect a neutral/earth reversal or does it fail to detect this connection error?
Asked by: Arthur
Of course it can! There is a neon specifically to test for this. Maplin, read the specs before replying.

I this device is used in a socket in a caravan, will this tester detect if the electrical feed to the caravan (i.e. the mains lead or the mains electric on a caravan site) has been wired in reversed polarity.
Asked by: DSB
Yes the product does support that.
