After designing and constructing both USB Tester and the OLED Backpack, this next tool was naturally conceived. Introducing the VA Tester, a device similar to the USB Tester. However, unlike its counterpart, the VA Tester allows you to use it inline with almost any project. Additionally, it makes the OLED Backpack twice as useful.
The VA Tester allows you to monitor up to 26VDC at ±3.2A Max. This gives you a wide range of possibilities. Using the screw terminals, you can attach bare wire or jumper wires without having to solder, making for quick and easy connections.
Another useful change from the USB Tester is the replacement of the banana connectors to standard sized test points that fit most of your DMM probes.
Here is a picture of the first prototype:
Interested in owning one of these VA Testers? Then come support the fundraiser on Tindie! If we reach our goal, we’ll give away an OLED Backpack to one lucky backer!
