Electrical protection is better at the point of use
Pass & Seymour Outlet Branch Circuit Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) Receptacles and Dual-Function AFCI/GFCI Receptacles are the latest innovations in electrical safety technology, and a Code-approved, cost-effective alternative to AFCI and Dual-Function AFCI/GFCI breakers.
Designed to protect against electrical fires caused by arc faults and injury due to electrical shock, these devices are compliant with NEC® requirements for new construction, circuit modifications/extensions and replacement receptacles.
And like GFCI receptacles, AFCI and Dual-Function AFCI/GFCI receptacles are installed in the living space so homeowners can see the indicator light, and perform TEST and RESET locally.
Reliable arc-fault protection that meets code, while making it easier for users to recognize and resolve trips right at the receptacle.
The cost-effective alternative to dual-function breakers that reduces user confusion, and contractor call-backs, all while meeting code for arc and ground fault protection.
