Square D by Schneider Electric Homeline 15 Amp 1-pole Plug-on Neutral Dual Function Circuit Breaker is a space and labor saving device, engineered to meet prevailing National Electric Code requirements. This device combines 2 critical technologies; Combination Arc Fault protection and ground fault protection (class A), in a single, easy-to-install device. The National Electric Code now requires both Combination Arc Fault and ground fault protection on all 1-Pole, 15 Amp and 20 Amp kitchen and laundry circuits. Prior to the release of this new device, a contractor or homeowner’s only choice would have been to use a Combination Arc Fault circuit breaker in conjunction with an expensive, bulky ground fault receptacle. The new dual function circuit breakers help reduce cost and eliminate the hassle of using 2 separate devices to provide this essential protection. It’s a win for contractors and homeowners alike. Designed for reliability, the Homeline Plug-on Neutral Dual Function Circuit Breaker connects directly to the neutral bar, providing a time and labor-saving installation. Several advantages from the plug-on neutral design are fewer connections which lead to faster installation and an innovative neutral clip eliminates pigtails which in turn frees gutter space. Like all Square D CAFI circuit breakers, it is integrated with time saver diagnostics, a unique feature that provides additional circuit information and minimizes troubleshooting at the touch of a button.

Questions & Answers

Will this nuisance trip when hooking up to a bonded, neutral to ground, panel? According to the manual it will trip.

I'm using this in a sub-panel in a detached garage
Asked by: Jimk
Your sub panel needs to have a separate grounding bar and remove any green bonding screw that may be in place. A green bonding screw works by screwing through the hole in the neutral bar and connecting it to the metal of the panel cabinet. You do not want that in a sub panel. It will create a very undesirable paralleling of the neutral in the circuits. In many panel cabinets where the breakers clip in (buss bar) is a spot either left or right, or both, where the separately purchased applicable brand of grounding bar can screw into the metal cabinet via provided holes. Your panel may not accept the 'No Pigtail' breakers. Your buss bar would need metal rails that run vertical on both sides. Those rails connect to the neutral at the top, providing the way for those no pigtail variety to work. If the rail is plastic, you need the breaker with white curly neutral pigtail.

What is the functional difference between these combination CBs? Some have pdf in the P/N, some have pcafi and others have just df. Are there real internal design differences that impact the type circuit where they are used?
Asked by: Shortstop
Hello, 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. There are differences that impact the circuit type being used on.

With the NEC rules requiring CAFCI in the kitchen, is it possible to tie two of these together with a Homeline tie bar to have split receptacles with independent trips? If so is it still possible to use them with a shared neutral (aka 12/3G wire).
Asked by: Kelley
In many older homes, a 12/3 would be run two feed two separate circuits, like a fridge and micro and they would share the neutral. Pretty sure it requires the more expensive double pole style breaker to work correctly. If you are not updating your home to sell it, for insurance company reasons, or to pass an inspection, then I would honestly just leave it as a standard breaker and enjoy the grandfathering provisions.

Shared neutral does not work, that is correct, however, there are dual pole AFCI breakers that work with shared neutral from same manufacturer. Depending on your situation you can combine the shared neutral circuit from two into one by merging red and black in panel (passed inspection). I did have issues with nuisance tripping at first, but rather than replacing with a regular breaker I tracked down the issues. One was a drywall screw through a wire (5 stars, as I had burn marks), the other a metal box with neutral going to ground. Found them by splitting the circuit in half at outlets. Since then I have had no tripping issues. Note that some appliances, e.g. some fridges, cannot be on a GFCI as their motor trips the GFCI breaker. This should be called out in instructions of the appliance on newer models.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable. Had my entire home rewired by a professional, licensed electrical contractor. New breaker box too. They did a GREAT job. Inspectors came in... passed everything with flying colors. Couldn't stop commenting on the quality of work that was done. Once completed, however, these installed breakers will trip from time to time for no apparent reason. In a bad week, I'd have to reset up to a dozen of them. A good week? Maybe 4-6. My electrician was at a loss. We contacted the manufacturer and they told my electrician that they were 'aware' of the sensitivity issues with these breakers. They claim they'll trip if the utility company is doing any work on lines in the area, that any surges the work creates can cause them to trip. The company (Schneider Electric) claims they're working on a solution for existing breakers and to implement that in future manufacturing. I guess I have to live with this? Today a breaker tied to one of my computers tripped and I lost a days worth of work. Completely unacceptable. My electrician is offering to replace them all with more reliable breakers, but he shouldn't have to foot the bill or invest more time in this issue. These breakers are totally unreliable, and frustrating to say the least. If you like to have to constantly reset your breakers, by all means, buy these. But if you want something reliable, look elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work as they should I read as many reviews about this product as I could before purchase and there where a lot of unhappy reviews. As I consulted my good friend who helped me wire my house I learned about how diligent you have to be when stripping wire and making sure you don't nick the wire. These arc fault breakers will detect it, they work as they should. You may have a faulty extension cord, and you will find out when you plug it into a circuit. This happened with our drywall guys. They cursed out the arc fault circuit but it was a bad cord they were using. I recommend the breaker without the pigtail, it looks better in the box. Ps do not cut off a pig tail, they have a chip in them that reads impedense in the wire..These combination breakers save you money in gcfi outlets which is a plus as well

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WAY OVER PRICED. MANDATED. Oh boy ... I am so irritated that new codes mandate arc fault. Not going to get into it. Guess who's on the board, making laws? These are SO EXPENSIVE it's awful. I'm renovating my kitchen and installed a new panel. This is a GFCI/arc fault combination. For some circuits, like the disposal I use a regular breaker and a GFCI receptacle under the sink. MUCH cheaper, especially since I already have some on hand. The white pigtail can and should be shortened. The breaker is HUGE, taking up a considerable amount of real estate in the panel.
