Default Re: NCV Live Test

Its for Non-Contact voltage sensing, there will be a sensor (usually on the top of the multimeter) that allows it to sense voltage (usually mains potential) and will sound/flash a warning if voltage is detected.
Generally used by electricians so they can check if a wire/cable is live before working on it without needing to access the conductors.
