Arc faults are often intermittent which can make troubleshooting the branch circuit very difficult. In these cases, it is important to determine whether the fault condition exists in the permanent wiring, in connected equipment, or in a power cord.

The Siemens Intelli-Arc Diagnostic Tool helps to accurately diagnose the circuit in which a fault has occurred. When used in conjunction with good troubleshooting techniques, this tool allows the electrical contractor to determine and locate the root cause or source of the fault. The device presents information as to the type and magnitude of fault. Since the fault may not cause an AFCI to trip for various reasons (i.e., duration too short, current level too low), the tool provides an indication showing how close an event is to causing an AFCI to trip.

This thing is amazing I did not buy this from Amazon because it was not on the site until recently, but have one and have used it. Talk about an amazing product, this thing can literally save hours of frustrating trouble shooting time. It can pay for itself the first time you use it. I recommend it to any electrical contractor that ever has to deal with any AFCI tripping calls.
