1-Pole Combination Type AFCI Breakers
Combination Type Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCI) detects 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.
