Safety Information
The EPM3 Phase Sequence and Motor Rotation Tester conforms to
CSA 22.2 -1010-1 and EN61010-1, CAT III 600 V.
To ensure safe operation and usage of this instrument, follow instructions in this
manual. Failure to observe Warnings may result in SEVERE injury or death.
• It is recommended for use in distribution level and fixed installations, as well as
lesser installations, and not for primary supply lines, overhead lines and cable
systems.
• Do not exceed the maximum overload limits per function (see specifications)
nor the limits marked on the instrument itself. Never apply more than 600 V ac
rms between the test lead and earth ground.
• Inspect the tester, test leads and accessories before each use. Do not use any
damaged part.
• Never ground yourself when taking measurements. Do not touch exposed
circuit elements or test probe tips.
• Do not operate the tester in an explosive atmosphere.
• Exercise extreme caution when: measuring voltage >20 V // current >10 mA //
AC power line with inductive loads // AC power line during electrical storms //
current, when the fuse blows in a circuit with open circuit voltage >600 V.
• Never replace a fuse with one of a different rating.
• Remove test leads before opening the case.
• Do not use in a manner not specified or the protection afforded by the
instrument may be impaired.

The tester provides three functions in one unit, including open phase, phase
sequence and motor rotation indication. This tester is ideal for installing conveyor
lines, pump systems and interconnected drivers.
The EPM3 is two measurement devices. One half measures the phase sequence of
a 3-wire system using the power of the system under test. Using lamp indicators, it
will indicate the 3-phase sequence or it will indicate an open phase situation. The
other half of the EPM3 measures 3-phase motor rotation on an unpowered motor
using the EPM3's internal 9 volt battery. The unit will indicate whether the motor
shaft has clockwise or counter-clockwise rotation.
Features:
• Identifies 3-phase sequence and open phase check
• Motor shaft rotation
• Battery operated
• Meets EN61010 safety requirements
• Supplied with three CAT III rated large alligator clips and color coded test leads

XWCaution
This instrument only indicates that voltage is present, not the
voltage level. Verify the actual voltage with a multimeter. Using
the wrong voltage can damage a motor.
Connect the three color coded test leads to the 3-phase input terminals, L1
(Red) - L2 (Green) - L3 (Blue) also know as A-B-C or R-S-T. See Figure 1.
Connect the three color coded alligator clips to the terminals of a 3-phase
power source. The connection order is optional. Use extreme caution in this
high voltage situation.
Confirm that all three lights below the test lead inputs on the EPM3 are ON. If
one or more of the three lights is OFF, there is an open phase condition. Correct
the power source problems before proceeding (See Open Phase Test later in
this manual). If the Open Phase tests are good, the EPM3 is defective. Repair or
replace the EPM3 before proceeding.
If all three lamps are ON, check the phase rotation indication for the rotation
direction, clockwise (w) or counter-clockwise (x) indicator.
If the counter clockwise lamp is ON, reverse the connections of any two of the
three alligator clips for clockwise rotation. Use extreme caution in this high
voltage situation.
The phase sequence is correct for clockwise (w) rotation when the
clockwise lamp is ON and the power source terminals are connected by the
RED, GREEN, and BLUE alligator clips to L1, L2, and L3. Remove power and
label the power source wires.
Open Phase Test
XWCaution
The multimeter used for this test should be properly rated for the
circuit under test.
1. Connect a multimeter (set to VAC and the voltage range expected) V input to
the phase wire in question and the COM input to neutral or ground to check the
phase voltage. Use extreme caution in this high voltage situation.
2. Verify that the two other phases are working properly and that the 3-phase to
phase voltages are correct. If a problem is found, correct the problem before
returning to the 3-phase rotation test.
Motor Rotation Test
This test can be used to verify the shaft rotation and the M1-M2-M3 connections or
to determine the M1-M2-M3 connections on a motor that is not marked.
XWWarning
Make all connections with circuits unpowered. If the clockwise or
counterclockwise RED indicator is ON before rotating the motor
shaft, voltage is present. Stop measuring. Remove the test leads
and turn off the external power.
1. Use a multimeter to verify that no voltage is present on the motor windings.
2. Connect the color coded test leads to the three motor input terminals M1- M2M3. Press the power button (See Figure 2). The green indicator light will be ON.
3. Facing the motor shaft, hand rotate the motor shaft clockwise.
4. If the clockwise indicator (w) is ON, the M1-M2-M3 connections are correct
for clockwise rotation.
5. If the counterclockwise (x) indicator is ON, the M1-M2-M3 connections are
correct for counterclockwise rotation.
6. If the motor rotation direction is wrong, reverse any two of the M1-M2-M3
connections and repeat the test.
After 3-phase rotation and motor phasing are verified:
1. Turn off power at the source.
2. Connect the previously identified power wire L1 to motor wire M1. Repeat the
connections for L2 to M2 and L3 to M3. See Figure 3.
3. Inspect the connections for electrical safety.
The motor will rotate in the desired direction when power is applied.
Maintenance
If the EPM3 appears to operate incorrectly, check the following items:
1. Review the operating instructions to ensure the meter is being used correctly.
2. Inspect and test the continuity of the test leads.
3. Make sure the battery is in good condition. Replace a low battery immediately.
4. Check the condition of the fuses.
XWWARNING
To avoid electrical shock, remove the test leads from the EPM3
and the test circuit before accessing the battery or the fuse.
Battery and Fuse Replacement
To access these parts, you must first remove the rear cover of the EPM3. The rear
cover is held in place with two screws. After removing the screws, you can easily
remove and replace the battery or a fuse. To replace a fuse, pry it from the retaining
clips using a small screwdriver. See Figure 4.
Use the following replacement parts:
Battery: 9 V NEDA 1604, IEC 6F22
Phase Sequence Fuse: Fast Blow 200 mA/600 V (Meterman FP900)
Motor Rotation Fuse: Fast Blow 100 mA/250 V (Littel Fuse 216.100)
Cleaning and Storage
Periodically wipe the case with a damp cloth and detergent. Do not use abrasives or
solvents. Remove the battery if the tester is not in use for periods longer than 60
days.
