COMPACT FENCING EQUIPMENT TESTER

The equipment tester is designed to test both fencing weapons and body cords or floor cords.

BODY CORD TESTING 

1.      Plug the three pronged connector of a body cord into the REEL END jacks of the tester.  If the body cord is for a foil, also attach the alligator clip to the ground (GND) post near the REEL END jacks.

2.      Plug the weapon end of the body cord into the appropriate socket on the tester.  If the body cord is for an epee, plug the other 3-prong connector into the second set of 3-prong jacks.

3.      If the body cord is good, all 3 LEDs (A, B, and C) will light.  Wiggle the wires near both ends of the body cord.  If the LEDs stay lit, the connections are solid.  If an LED flashes, the connections for that wire (A, B, or C) are loose and must be tightened.  Another possibility is that there is a break in a wire, usually near a connector.  Broken wires must be cut back to the break and re-attached to the connectors.

MASK CORD TESTING

1.      Clip each end of the mask cord to the GND posts.

2.      If the mask cord is good, the red LED will light.

3.      Wiggle the wires near both ends of the body cord.  If the red LED stays lit, the connections are solid.

 

WEAPONS TESTING  (Always test the Body Cord first BEFORE using it to test a weapon!)

FOIL

1.      Plug the 3-pronged connector of a body cord into the REEL END jacks of the tester.

2.      Plug the weapon end of the body cord into the socket on the foil.

3.      If the weapon is good, the green LED will light.  When the tip of the foil is pressed, the green LED should go out.

4.      If a foil test weight is used with this tester, the weight should be pressed down to turn off the green LED.  If the spring is good, when the weight is released, the weight will be raised by the spring and the green LED will light again.

EPEE

1.      Plug a three pronged connector of a body cord into the REEL END jacks of the tester.

2.      Plug the other end of the body cord into the sockets on the epee.

3.      If the weapon is good, the red LED will remain dark.  When the tip of the epee is pressed, the red LED should light.  If the red LED lights without pressing the tip, there is a short in the wires, tip, or socket of the epee.

4.      If an epee test weight is used with this tester, the weight should be pressed down to turn on the red LED.  If the spring is good, when the weight is released, the weight will be raised by the spring and the red LED will turn off.
