Product Description:

An Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) is a specific duplex receptacle or circuit breaker designed to help prevent fires by detecting an unintended electrical arc and disconnecting the power before the arc starts a fire. An AFCI must distinguish between a harmless arc that occurs incidental to normal operation of switches, plugs and brushed motors and an undesirable arc that can occur, for example, in a lamp cord that has a broken conductor in the cord.

Arc faults in a home are one of the leading causes for electrical wiring fires. Each year in the United States, over 40,000 fires are attributed to home electrical wiring. These fires result in over 350 deaths and over 1,400 injuries each year.

Conventional circuit breakers only respond to overloads and short circuits; so they do not protect against arcing conditions that produce erratic, and often reduced current. An AFCI is selective so that normal arcs do not cause it to trip. The AFCI circuitry continuously monitors the current and discriminates between normal and unwanted arcing conditions. Once an unwanted arcing condition is detected, the AFCI opens its internal contacts, thus de-energizing the circuit and reducing the potential for a fire to occur. An AFCI should not trip during normal arcing conditions, which can occur when a switch is opened or a plug is pulled from a receptacle, or a device with a brush-type motor is in operation.

AFCI circuit breakers resemble a GFCI/RCD (Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupt/Residual-Current Device) breaker in that they both have a test button although each has a different function; similarly, AFCI receptacles resemble GFCI receptacles in that they too have a test button. GFCIs and RCDs are designed to protect against electrical shock of a person, while AFCIs (receptacle or breaker) are primarily designed to protect against electrical fires caused by arcing. Some outlets must be protected by both a GFCI and an AFCI, such as an outlet near a wet bar in a family room.

Q:How is the circuit breaker different from the air circuit breaker?
can not turn on the current, you can disconnect the short-circuit current below the current (by fuse).
Q:Short trip also tripped, overload also trip it?
The element combination is mainly used for short circuit and overload protection. Generally divided into 1P 1P plus N open air or. 3P or 4P, etc.
Q:Circuit breaker generally choose what ah?
so RCD can cut very sensitive ground fault protection circuit can also be directly Use contact with backup shock protection.
Q:Frame circuit breaker, molded case circuit breaker difference
I have faced some customers often have such trouble, so I am on the basis of this question, consulted the factory three senior engineers,
Q:Is there a sequence of circuit breakers and disconnectors?
The disconnector does not have an arc extinguishing mechanism that can cause equipment damage and personal injury and death, and cause a large area power outage.
Q:Does the isolator and circuit breaker able to switch to each other?
When the circuit breaker disconnect the live circuit, the internal contact in the separation of the moment will produce an arc, the higher the voltage or the greater the current, the stronger the arc.
Q:What is the capacity of the circuit breaker
The breaking capacity of the high-voltage circuit breaker is the same as that of the rated breaking current
Q:What are the differences between switches and circuit breakers?
Generally in the power supply system, the isolation in the upper part of the circuit breaker, so the order of operation: closing
Q:Where will the circuit breaker auxiliary contacts be used? ,
Most molded case circuit breakers are operated manually and partly with motor operation.
Q:How long does the circuit breaker last?
functional switching appliances should be able to be suitable for the most arduous work system may have;
