Ideal Industries Inc., Sycamore, Ill., is running two new sales promotions designed to enhance the value of its SureTest circuit analyzers and PlatinumPro 320 Series multimeters. The promotions, dubbed "Right time to buy a SureTest" and "Music to your ears," will run through June 30, 2004. Details on how to take advantage of these promotions are available at participating Ideal distributors. Rebate forms can be downloaded at www.idealindustries.com.

Music to your ears. With the "Music to your ears" promotion, customers who purchase an Ideal PlatinumPro 320 Series multimeter will receive a look-alike AM/FM clock radio. A $29.99 value, the free radio comes complete with tuner and volume knobs, magnetic hanging strap and carrying case.

Right time to buy a SureTest. With this promotion, Ideal is giving electricians something extra with every SureTest branch circuit analyzer they purchase. During the promotional period, customers who buy the ultra-compact SureTest Arc 61-056 will receive a free carrying case with a belt clip valued at $13. In addition, customers who buy the feature-rich SureTest AFCI 61-155 will receive a set of rugged alligator clips valued at $28.

Both SureTest models offer an AFCI (arc-fault circuit interrupter) testing mode that simulates parallel arcing between line and neutral to test arc fault circuit breakers and outlet devices. This critical feature verifies that the entire circuit is adequately protected from the threat of a hazardous arc fault.
