ACT Meters CALMASTER: Calibration Test Box for Multimeters ACT Meters GOLD-PLUS 6V/12V Intelligent Battery Tester
Ensure your multimeters are always deemed accurate with CALMASTER. This useful bench tester checks that meter ranges are to calibration standard. It’s quick and easy to use - and reduces the number of meters sent away unnecessarily for calibration. Test the most common lead acid battery types all from the one, GOLD PLUS unit. Standby SLA, cyclic GEL and car FLOODED – the GOLD PLUS tests both 6V and 12V models quickly and displays Ah capacity available.

Simply turn the Ah Calibration Control to select either standby SLA, cyclic GEL and car FLOODED battery types prior to testing. The Calibration Control also allows you to calibrate the battery tester to non standard battery types.

For 6V & 12V battery models
Test 6V battery models between 1.2Ah and 12Ah, and 12V battery models between 1.2Ah and 100Ah. With a wide Ah range, the GOLD PLUS is ideal for testing batteries used in many applications from security, mobility to leisure.

Simple Operation
Connect the clamps to the battery, turn the Ah Calibration Control to the desired battery type under test and press the ‘TEST’ button. It’s that easy. Results will be displayed within seconds.

DC Voltage and Ah Capacity Results
There’s no confusing conversion rates or user interpretation needed when using the GOLD PLUS. Two results are displayed – the battery’s DC voltage followed by the actual Ah capacity available.

When to Recharge or Replace
Battery manufacturers recommend to recharge or replace a battery when its rated Ah capacity falls below 65%. By giving a clear and accurate Ah reading, the GOLD PLUS will help you identify replacements quickly and easily.

Advanced Pulse Load Technology
The GOLD PLUS uses advanced pulse load technology to analyse Ah capacity, based on the battery’s temperature and state of charge. This method is significantly more accurate than measuring voltage and internal resistance and does not deplete the battery unlike a conventional load tester.

Reliable, Continuous Testing
Powered by the battery under test and with ultra low heat generation.

Perfectly suited as a bench tester or out on the job with the engineer.

Identify batteries that still have life remaining and reduce the amount discarded unnecessarily.

Show the customer the result and increase your own battery sales by recommending a new battery for their system.

ACT 1166 HF Earth Line Choke - B6-ACT1166 ACT 1376 PIR RFI Stabiliser - B6-ACT1376
The ACT 1166 will protect ‘steel boxed’ control panels against RFI signals feeding back from mains earth, onto the 0Volt, affecting the 12VDC supply to the control panel, communicator and alarm detectors. The ACT 1166 can be used on any steel boxed panel which ties 0Volt to earth as a preventative measure against RFI.


• Prevents electrical RFI from affecting the 12VDC supply on metal control panels
• Connect in line with mains earth inside the control panel

The ACT 1376 will prevent unexplained false alarms caused by troublesome PIRs affected by RFI signals. Such problems are caused by a specific cable length acting as an aerial which passes the signal from the 12V supply onto sensitive components within the detector. RFI can cause a PIR relay to ‘chatter’ or ‘drop out’ altogether resulting in an unexplained false alarm. Once fitted, the ACT 1376 will stabilize the DC supply in the event of a DC spike.


• Prevents RFI from affecting a troublesome PIR or dual detector
• Powers a PIR or dual detector for up to 250ms in the event of a DC spike
• Eliminates replacing non-defective motion sensors
• Fitted either inside or behind the troublesome detector with the 12VDC supply connected through


1. Disconnect 12VDC to PIR at control panel
2. Remove PIR cover and re-locate 12VDC supply into stabiliser terminals red + black -
3. Connect red + and black - wires into PIR 12VDC supply
4. Replace PIR cover and re-connect 12VDC supply at control panel
5. Test PIR operation after installation
ACT 1414 24VDC Spike Suppressor - B6-ACT1414 ACT 230V Mainspike Suppressor - B6-ACT2323
The ACT 1414 works in exactly the same way as the ACT 1313 spike suppressor but is designed for 24VDC fire alarm panels.


• Prevents false alarms caused by electrical spikes
• Suitable for all makes of fire alarm panels
• Connects between the 24VDC and earth


1. Connect red + and black - wires across any 24V fire alarm zone
2. Connect green to mains earth
NOTE: Only one 24V spike suppressor is required for the control panel
Both the ACT 2323 and ACT 1313 should be fitted as standard to protect against false alarms and system malfunctions caused by induced AC and nearby lightning.

The ACT 2323 provides up to 4,500 Amps spike protection across live, neutral and earth.

Everyone knows the benefits of fitting the ACT 1313 12v spike suppressor as standard! Now we've designed the ACT2323 for the mains - a new Low Cost Mainspike Suppressor which provides up to 4,500 Amps spike protection across Live, Neutral and Earth. Just what you need to protect all your Security & Fire Alarm Panels, CCTV Cameras, Access Control Equipment and Security Lighting. By fitting the ACT1313 and ACT2323 as standard to security systems you have belt-and-braces protection against false alarms and malfunctions.

The ACT2323 is styled in flame retardant Nylon to UL94VO Standards. Its neat modular shape enables it to be installed easily with simple parallel connections to LNE. Once fitted to your security equipment it will continuously protect against nearby lightning and electrical spikes up to 4,500 Amps.


  • Continuously protects all security and fire alarm panels, CCTV cameras, access control equipment and security lighting from false alarms and malfunctions
  • Provides up to 4,500 Amps spike suppression across live, neutral and Earth
  • Neat modular shape fits easily with simple parallel connections to LNE
