PLATINUM TOOLS Fault Trapper. Arc fault circuit tester & fault locator. In-line monitoring of energized dedicated circuits up to 300V AC & 40A. Plug in with existing wiring. Easy to use.
Stop guessing about live circuit issues! For the first time, you can detect the type of fault and locate the position of an electrical fault that causes intermittent or persistent circuit breaker trips, thus giving you the critical information needed to reduce callbacks for circuit breaker trips.
The Fault Trapper is a new class of tester using Spread Spectrum Time Domain Reflectometry (SSTDR) to monitor energised circuits. Running on in-line power for extended battery life, it captures time and distance to Intermittent Opens, Shorts and Arc Faults saving the event information in memory for later investigation. The in-line 40A Module isolates the circuit being monitored by the breaker panel and all other breakers. The last faults can be viewed off-line using the backup battery.
Fault Trapper allows unattended monitoring of energised dedicated circuits to locate a fault on the line. Connect the Fault Trapper to your circuit, press the Test button to begin monitoring and walk away. Come back later or the next day to find out the why-when-and-where’s faults are occurring on the circuit and causing the circuit breaker to trip.
