Eaton AFCI receptacles for residential and light commercial jobs



June 23, 2014 – With the launch of its new AFCI (arc fault circuit interrupter) receptacle, Eaton says it is the only manufacturer to provide protection against arc faults at both the breaker and receptacle levels.

The AFCI receptacles are suitable for retrofit applications, and are designed to protect all downstream wire and appliances from parallel and series arcs, as well as series arcs upstream in the home run. In addition to the receptacles, Eaton offers AFCI breakers designed to protect the entire circuit from its origin in the load centre for both parallel and series arcs.
