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.

2008, 2011 and 2014 National Electric Code (NEC)

  • Requires Combination Type AFCI

  • Expand to 1pole, 15-20A circuits 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.


Features and Benefits

■ Industry exclusive LED indicators

     - Trip 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.

          ■ Two LEDs will be illuminated if the last trip was a result of an arcing fault to ground.

          ■ 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.
