Residential AFCI Circuit Breakers

Residential AFCI Circuit Breakers

Keep your family safe with arc fault circuit breakers

Combination Type Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCI) detect arcing faults (an unintentional arcing condition in a circuit) that standard circuit breakers are unable to detect.  The device is intended to mitigate the effects of arcing faults by functioning to de-energize the circuit when an arc-fault is detected.  A Combination Type AFCI detects all three types of arcing:  line-to-neutral, line-to-ground, and series arcing.

Product Features

2008, 2011, 2014, and 2017 National Electric Code (NEC) requires Combination Type AFCIs: 1pole, 15-20A circuits should be installed in dwelling unit kitchens, family rooms, dining rooms, living rooms, parlors, libraries, dens, bedrooms, sunrooms, recreation rooms, closets, hallways, laundry areas, or similar rooms or areas.

 

  • Industry exclusive LED indicators provide a valuable analysis tool to help electricians pinpoint the type of trip.
  • The LED indications will appear for 5 seconds each time the AFCI is turned “ON” up to 30 days after the last trip.
  • One LED will be illuminated if the last trip was a result of an arcing fault.
  • No indication will be displayed if the AFCI trips as a result of an overcurrent condition.
  • This last known trip indication can also be cleared from memory to assist with verifying resolution of the problem.
  • Insta-Wire connectors
  • Provide electricians valuable time savings in installation.

Reduces wiring costs and installation time by enabling contractors to use multi-wire branch circuits, commonly known as "shared neutrals".  When using single pole CAFCIs, a dedicated neutral is required for each circuit. It allows electricians to share neutrals between the two circuits fed by the breaker.
