Courtesy: EatonEaton's dual-purpose arc fault/ground fault (AF/GF) circuit breaker is designed for contractors and specifying engineers working on construction and renovation projects in the light commercial markets. The dual purpose AF/GF circuit breaker combines arc fault and ground fault protection into a single package, allowing for quick installation and easy access, identification, and reset of tripped circuits. The circuit breaker also meets changes in the 2014 National Electrical Code (NEC), which now require arc fault circuit interruption (AFCI) protection in addition to ground fault circuit interruption (GFCI) protection. Additionally, the device features an integrated LED indicator that identifies seven different causes of trips to reduce troubleshooting time.
