Product Overview

A Combination Type Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter is a device that includes all of the protection offered by the Branch Feeder AFCI (mitigation of parallel arcing faults in the complete circuit, including connected cords). In addition it provides direct detection of persistent low current arcing faults down to 5-Amp with associated mitigation of fire hazards in the cords connected to the outlets. Parallel arcing faults can occur from line to neutral or line to ground. These arcing faults are in parallel with the load and produce the most energy of all arcing faults. The current level of low current arcing faults is limited by the load.

Customer Questions & Answers

What does "combination" refer to? What is it combining?

Asked by: Ace
Combination arc fault breaker refers to the combining of both parallel and series arcing. A parallel arc is a self-sustaining arc between two conductors that has its own complete circuit. A series arc refers is a low current arc, and has a break or gap in a single conductor in a series with a connected load. Series arcing is bound by the loads connected to the branch circuit.

can it be used in place of a GFCI breaker?

Asked by: gator
NO!! A Ground Fault Circuit Interruptor (GFCI) provides a different type of protection than an Arc Fault Circuit Interruptor (AFCI). GFCI's are typically required for basements, garages, outdoors, kitchens, and within 6' of a sink or basin. These have been required for years. AFCI's are relatively new and are now required for the usual living spaces of a residence such as bedrooms, living rooms, family rooms, dens, hallways, etc. One should not be used in place of the other. If in doubt, please contact a reputable electrician.
