Continuity testers are designed to determine if an electrical path can be established between two points. The test is completed with the power to the
circuit turned off. This is a much safer alternative than trying to trace wire routes by testing energized circuits.
Continuity testers consist of an indicator in series with a source of power, usually a battery, a probe and a test lead. When the probe and lead are
touched to any continuous conductive path, usually a wire, a circuit will be complete and the indicator will be activated. The indicator is usually a
light or, more commonly, a buzzer. This has led to the term "buzzing out a circuit" to mean testing for continuity.
Continuity testers are a great help for not only determining if a circuit is complete but also for testing whether or not a switch is working and
locating a specific wire in a bundle.
