What kind of backprobe test leads or adapters are you using for testing both line and low voltage Molex terminals?
I found the Fluke TP920 set and it looks like it is the only one with any kind of CAT rating. Apparently it’s only CAT II, 300V, but most of the other stuff seems to have no rating at all or only says it is designed for automotive use.
What’s strange is that if you buy the same Fluke TP88 backprobes alone instead of in the TP920 set, it says they are now only rated for 60VDC.
The 60VDC rated probes would probably be okay for low voltage control testing, but as far as NFPA 70E is concerned, I’m not sure about using them for line voltage testing as well.

What voltages are you working with?
I use all Fluke and some of my leads say 300v but most are marked 600v?
just curious cause I guess I never considered my test lead rating. I do 95% residential with some occasional 480/3 208-230/3?
