Square D by Schneider Electric QO 20 Amp 1-pole Plug-on Neutral Dual Function Circuit Breaker is a space and labor saving device, engineered to meet prevailing NEC requirements. This device combines two critical technologies; Combination Arc Fault protection and Ground Fault protection (class A), in a single, easy-to-install device. The NEC 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 two 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.

Will this breaker ground my plugs

No, however it would make it code compliant to have 3 prong receptacles as long as a "GFCI PROTECTED OUTLET NO EQUIPMENT GROUND" sticker is placed on every connected receptacle.

How many recepticles can be on this breaker.

Allowable Breaker Load The National Electrical Code doesn't limit the number of receptacles you can place on a 20-amp circuit, but you'll overload the breaker if you run appliances that draw more current than the breaker can handle. The NEC does specify that a circuit breaker shouldn't handle more than 80 percent of the load for which it is rated unless the breaker is labeled otherwise. By this standard, the total current draw on a 20-amp circuit shouldn't exceed 16 amps. This allows the breaker to handle the temporary surge that happens when an appliance such as a power saw or air conditioner starts up. Avoiding Overloads When deciding how many receptacles to add to a 20-amp circuit, consider what you are likely to plug into each one. For safety, the total draw on the circuit shouldn't exceed 16 amps at any one time, which translates to a maximum power draw of 1,920 watts on a conventional 120-volt circuit, even though the breaker won't trip until the power draw exceeds 2,400 watts. You should limit the number of receptacles on a circuit that will handle a power-hungry appliance. For example, most electric heaters draw 1,500 watts, so a circuit that powers one should have few other receptacles. Spreading the Load To better distribute the power consumption among all the breakers in the panel, combine lights and electrical outlets on a single circuit, because lights typically draw less power than appliances. Your kitchen must have at least two outlets, each on separate circuits, so that if one breaker trips, you still have power. Adding lights to each circuit balances the load and avoids the necessity for separate lighting circuits. Certain kitchen appliances, however, such as the dishwasher, must be on a dedicated circuit, which means that you can't include anything else on the circuit -- not even lights. General Guidelines In most circuits, only one outlet is likely to be in use at any one time, so it's a good strategy to spread as many as possible around the house on a single circuit to guarantee you have power where you need it. One rule of thumb is to assign a maximum draw of 1.5 amps to each receptacle, which allows for 10 receptacles on a 20-amp circuit. You must use 12-gauge wire to connect 20-amp circuits; when you're installing receptacles in the bathroom, kitchen, laundry room or outdoors, they must generally be ground fault interrupting receptacles. Now with all the energy efficient lights and accessories - recepticals are not as loaded as in the past.
