Product Overview

The Square D by Schneider Electric QO 20 Amp Single-Pole Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupting (AFCI) Circuit Breaker is for use to help protect your wires from arcing faults and is intended for overload and short-circuit protection of your electrical system. This breaker is compatible with QO load centers, CSED devices, and NQOD panel boards. The ANSI-certified and UL-listed unit is rated for 120/240 VAC and 10,000 AIR. All QO circuit breakers are equipped with the exclusive Visi-Trip indicator. When a QO Visi-Trip circuit breaker trips, the handle snaps to a midpoint position between in OFF and in ON and a highly visible, red indicator easily identifies the tripped breaker. This enables you to easily distinguish which breaker has tripped in a load center that may contain up to 42 different circuit breakers. QO circuit breakers have features no other manufacturer can offer. They come in many different sizes and can meet the needs of virtually every function in your home or business. These types of quality, industry exclusive products keep the Square D brand ahead of the competition and are builders' and electrical contractors' first choice in electrical protection.

Answer: 
Combination Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters protect branch circuits, and all downstream receptacles and cord sets, against both high-energy parallel arcing (the same as existing branch/feeder AFCIs) and low-energy series arcing. A Dual Function Device combines Combination Arc Fault Protection with Class A Ground fault (People) protection. Dual Function Devices meet 2014 National Electrical Code Read More
Combination Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters protect branch circuits, and all downstream receptacles and cord sets, against both high-energy parallel arcing (the same as existing branch/feeder AFCIs) and low-energy series arcing. A Dual Function Device combines Combination Arc Fault Protection with Class A Ground fault (People) protection. Dual Function Devices meet 2014 National Electrical Code requirements and combine two state-of-the-art technologies; Combination Arc Fault and Ground Fault protection, in a single, easy-to-install device. Yes the QO120AFIC is still safe to be use today. The dual function is used in areas where both CAFI and Ground fault protection are required (opposed to using a CAFI breaker with a Ground fault receptical). Read Less
