Product Overview

The SmartlockPro Outlet Branch Circuit (OBC) AFCI Receptacle offers advanced technology to help protect against electrical fires resulting from arc-faults. Designed to detect a wide range of potentially hazardous arc-faults resulting from damage in branch circuit wiring as well as extensions to branches such as appliances and cord sets, the OBC AFCI responds by interrupting power. This helps reduce the likelihood of the home's electrical system being an ignition source of a fire. Often unseen, arc-faults can occur anywhere in the home's electrical system including within walls, at loose electrical connections or within electrical cords accidently damaged by impinging furniture. AFCI's are now required by the National Electrical Code in many areas of the home.

California residents: see   Proposition 65 information

  • Use of test and reset buttons is similar to traditional GFCI receptacles of which consumers have become familiar with this means greater acceptance of the technology and a more user-friendly platform
  • Automatically tests the AFCI every time the reset button is depressed, the AFCI will not reset if the AFCI circuit is not functioning properly
  • By blocking reset of the AFCI if protection has been compromised, the SmartlockPro OBC AFCI reduces the possibility of end-users incorrectly assuming that a reset AFCI is providing protection
  • A line-load reversal diagnostic feature is provided which prevents the AFCI from being reset and stops power from being fed to the AFCI receptacle face or through to downstream devices

Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use this device AND a GFCI receptacle downstream to protect a bathroom from ground faults and arc faults?

The inspector is requiring both types of protection in the bathroom
Asked by: Brock
The inspector is incorrect, based on the 2011 and 2014 NEC, AFCI is not required in bathrooms and garages. In CA, the 2014 code goes into effect Jan 1, 2017. In states have adopted the 2017 NEC, ( goes into effect on Jan 1 2017), does now require AFCI in the baths and garage, basically "Whole House" 15 and 20 amp 120 volt circuits "inside the dwelling" leaving only 240 volt circuits and outside circuits without AFCI. Also, 2017 NEC allows a standard circuit breaker to feed power through Romex to the first outlet, where an Outlet Branch Circuit AFCI is installed, thereby protecting downstream outlets. Usually, Inspectors allow the newer Code requirements to be used, on the theory that the thinking has been advanced.

Will this device protect the downstream circuit against a current overload greater than 15 Amps?

Asked by: Nigel
The short answer is NO. This device is NOT intended to be an over current protection device. A load higher than the maximum rated 15 amps will destroy or damage this AFCI and could create a fire hazard.

does this work like a gfci, where you only need one at the first recepticle to protect other recepticles down line?

Asked by: david
This has an external circuit which will protect after the AFCI per instructions.

I was able to change out almost all the 2 prong outlets in my 1920s vintage home without having to installer larger boxes. Best of all, my kids are much happier now that three prong outlets are plentiful for plugging in their electronic gadget chargers. The AFCI doesn't require a ground wire, which the old wiring usually didn't have. And you can often protect multiple downstream outlets with one AFCI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe receptacle I was looking to replace a older outlet that was being used in the bathroom. I felt it needed a ground fault type. When I removed the older outlet, I was afraid that the wire size would not be compatible with this newer outlet. There was no problem installing the AFCI receptacle. When I tested the outlet, it worked as advertised. I am more comfortable with this outlet by the sink in the bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't confuse NEW AFCI receptacle with GFCI versions! It seems some of the posters are confused as to the use of these newly minted AFCI receptacles. They are NOT meant to replace the more common GFCI versions which protect more against shock. AFCIs protect more against fire hazards like shorting wires and cords. The NEC now (2014) mandates most receptacles that are replaced in an existing home, etc. must offer AFCI protection. The most exceptions being where GCFI receptacles are used. A replacement receptacle can be a new AFCI type (similar in look to GFCI) OR a new AFCI circuit breaker must be installed in the circuit where the replacement receptacle is to be installed. Both are not required in tandem. An installed AFCI receptacle can be configured in a circuit as to protect other (standard) receptacles downstream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't confuse this AFCI with a GFCI Some reviewers are confusing AFCI protection with GFCI they have completely different functions. Leviton products have been my 1st choice for as far back as I can remember because of their excellent quality. Arc fault breakers aren't available for my older homes panel box, so to provide arc fault protection these were my only feasible option to get arc fault protection. Trick is locating closest outlet to panel box for the circuit you want to protect. I always start with the one bedrooms are on labeling outlets on that circuit as well & go from there. Installed these will help protect that entire circuit from electrical fire. AFCI will also detect arc problems with basically anything plugged into those outlets as well. Recommended testing AFCI on at least a monthly basis.
