Glowing connections are likely a leading cause of electrical fires in homes and

Recent statistics published by the National Fire Protection Association (1993-1997)
show that fixed wiring is the cause of 34.7% of fires in the home attributable to
electrical origin. An unknown, yet significant percentage of these fires are very likely
caused by a "glowing connection", a fault that may develop over time into a fire
waiting to happen. While you sleep or while you're away, and hidden inside your
A Glowing Connection:
Can develop anywhere electrical connections are made
Is currently difficult or impossible to detect until it's too late
Is particularly likely in older buildings with aging wiring

A Glowing Connection:
Can NOT be detected by a conventional circuit breaker or fuse
Can NOT be detected by a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI)
Can NOT be detected by an Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI)
More Information


Recent developments have produced a prototype detector, capable of detecting intermittent series arcing as well as a
glowing connection. The device consists of a small electronics package that is carried room-to-room, and individually
plugged into the outlets. A series of LEDs indicate if any series arcing, or a glowing connection, is found. An
electrician can use the device to isolate the circuit, or sometimes even the outlet, which harbors the hazard.

With this information, an electrician can make repairs, or replace faulty equipment or wiring
before a disaster occurs.
In older construction, wouldn't you rather protect your family or business than take the risk?

The equipment is portable, low-cost, and easy to operate. DON'T BUY AN OLDER HOME WITHOUT IT!

We are looking for professionals interetsed in testing the equipment in the field. Please contact us if you would like to
