Testing cables is as easy as plugging them in. The TLP has three green and one red LED that indicate correct wiring or any fault conditions. Operation is hands-free; there are no buttons to push or knobs to turn. A properly wired line cord will show all three green LEDs illuminated. The earth LED light comes on before the Neutral and Line LEDs to confirm the Earth connection making first and breaking last. The Whirlwind TLP is powered by a single 9V battery located inside the unit. A battery test button is provided to confirm that the battery is capable of properly testing cables. The Earth LED illuminates when the Battery Test button is pushed, and the battery is good. Also launched is the TLT (Tester Line-True) for True-One® three wire power cords.
