A:  Yes, however it is recommended that you preform the standard aluminum to copper upgrade at all the termination points first. Google for additional details.

    A:  Only CO/ALR rated devices can be direct connected with aluminum wire and these devices are not CO/ALR rated.

    A:  Hi Thank you for choosing Leviton. No, it's rated for copper or copper clad wiring only.

        A:  I don't believe that Leviton model AGTR1 (arc fault/ground fault combo receptacle) is rated for use with aluminum wiring. You may need to pigtail the aluminum with copper or copper-clad wiring. If you go this route, the receptacle needs to be installed as the first outlet on the branch circuit in order to provide downstream protection. You also don't necessarily need GFCI protection for dry locations. My recommendation for aluminum wiring would be to replace the breakers in the panel with arc fault breakers. Home Depot carries a good variety of Eaton and Square D brand AFCI breakers.

                A:  No exactly sure of what you are doing. but the NEC does not allow a cord to be run inside wall or through a building structure. An extension cord cannot be used as a substitute for permanent wiring.

                A:  Flexible power cords like those used to connect TV sets are not approved as permanent wiring and there fore not allowed to be installed inside wall cavities or run through walls or floors. It has nothing to do with the protection on the wiring.

                  A:  Due to the circuitry inside, it's not uncommon for a GFCI/AFCI device to produce some electrical noise, but it's not something explicitly audible, unless one was to put their ear directly to the device.

                    Q:does this meet the NEC 2014 requires for _Combination_ AFCI? (no, not the 'dual function' regarding the additional of GFCI. I realize it has GFCI built in as well). I ask because there are two types of AFCI protection- the 'older' regular AFCI, and the 'combination' AFCI, which detects more types of arcs. CAFCI is now required, and i can't tell if this covers the newer requirements like the dual function (C)AFCI-GFCI breakers do.

                            Q:Will these fit in an older 1960's single metal box

                            A:  Those boxes were pretty small so it would be a tight fit, but should fit if no more than 4 conductors are in the box. This would be a good application for a Dual Function AFCI/GFCI circuit breaker.

                              A:  If you are asking about a standard metal outlet box, then it will fit unless there are a number of connectors in the box. If you are asking about a handy box, it may be too crowded. You can install a new box, right next to the breaker panel if you want, install this device in that box and connect the existing outlet circuit to this device. Then all outlets on the circuit will be protected.

                                A:  Probably, if you have line wires coming in and 2 load wires going out, you will have no wire nuts to connect, saving space. Wrap screws in electrical tape to eliminate shorting.

                                by|Jan 29, 2021

                                  A:  Without knowing the dimensions of the box it's hard to say, but older boxes are generally shallower than more current designs. I would think the new slimmer GFCI should fit, but if there are a number of additional wires in the box, it could be difficult.

                                      A:  Barely, but will fit. But, it also depends on how many wires, clamps in the box, and the cubic inch capacity of the box. There are lots of different size metal boxes, and NEC rules as to fill capacity.

                                        Q:To be used as sole AFCI protection for a circuit, the NEC (2017) requires four conditions be met: (1) Branch circuit wiring is continuous from the branch circuit overcurrent device (OCP) to the device (2) Maximum length of 14 AWG conductors between OCP and device is 50 feet. For 12 AWG wire, max is 75 feet. (3) The first outlet box (where this device is installed) must be marked (so future electricians know) and (4) "The combination of the branch-circuit overcurrent device and outlet branch-circuit AFCI shall be identified as meeting the requirements for a system combination-type AFCI and shall be listed as such." What breakers are listed with this device to provide the protection?

Can't use 3 wire (shared neutral) off of the AFCI/GFCIs to load receptacles. 2 wire to each receptacle, if splitting the receptacle both of the connecting bridges need to be removed.
