Introducing the Fault Mapper Pro Model CA7027
The AEMC Fault Mapper Pro is a hand-held, graphical Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR), designed for identifying and locating faults on power and communication cables, given access to one end only.
The Fault Mapper Pro measures cable length and indicates the length and distance to cable faults to a range of 9 to 19,000 ft on any type of cable. It injects a series of pulses into the cable under test. The velocity at which the pulses travel is determined by the type of cable, which is known as the velocity of propagation (Vp) of the cable. The Vp is adjustable between 1 percent and 99 percent, enabling accurate calibration to the cable under test.
The Vp value is expressed as a percentage of the speed of light (e.g. 67 percent or ft/mtrs/micro-second); this value will vary according to the type of cable under test. The Fault Mapper Pro can accept user selectable values between 1 percent and 99 percent-or the equivalent value in feet or meters per micro-second.
Based on the selected Vp and the time taken for the pulses to travel through the cable, a reflection profile of the cable under test is displayed. An adjustable cursor assists in locating faults and termination.

Model 6610 Non-contact Phase Rotation Meter
The Phase Rotation Meter Model 6610 from AEMC Instruments is an essential tool for any installation, inspection and maintenance facility. The Model 6610 is a non-contact (no metal contact points) phase meter designed to identify phase rotation on 3-phase systems and identify live and open/de-energized phases.
The phase order is determined as soon as the leads are connected. The presence of live wires and phase sequence are provided by light emitting diode (LED) indication and buzzer as soon as detection has occurred. The Model 6610 is especially useful for installing rotating machinery or motors, and for checking generator phase rotation direction.
• No direct electrical contact (no metal contact points);
• Operating voltage: 75 to 1000 Vac;
• Frequency range: 45 to 65 Hz;
• Phase rotation LED indicators (ABC or BAC);
• Bright LED indication live or open phase (A, B, C);
• Includes three attached color-coded test leads with non-metallic alligator sensor clips for easy connection to the device under test;
• Low battery indicator;
• Back cover includes a magnet feature that can mount the instrument onto any metal cabinet panel for easy measurement; and
• EN61010-1; 1000V CAT III; 600V CAT IV.
• Verify incorrect phase wiring;
• Detect open or de-energized phases; and
• Determine correct wiring for proper rotation on motors, pumps, etc.
