The Intelli Arc Diagnostic Tool is intended to analyze house hold circuits to localize arc faults. It can indicate early
warnings of possible arcing before an AFCI breaker would trip. The Intelli Arc Diagnostic Tool may show contributions
from different loads that each individually would not create a trip condition. However, the combination of these loads may
create a situation that results in a trip condition of an AFCI breaker.
The Intelli Arc Detector does NOT protect from arcing in any circuit and it does not prevent any damage that an arc fault
can cause. It is a measurement tool to support the detection of an arc fault.
The Intelli Arc Diagnostic Tool is for indoor use only for measurements of category III in branch circuits of maximum 20A
rated current.
