Schneider unveils QO and HomeLine dual function circuit breakers



April 21, 2014 – Schneider Electric has introduced Square D QO and HomeLine dual function circuit breakers, combining arc fault and ground fault protection into a single, easy-to-install device, it says.

According to Schneider, the circuit breakers help reduce cost and eliminate the hassle of using two separate devices to provide the critical electrical protection against arc fault and ground fault hazards in the home. Key functionalities of the unit include: Pigtail and Plug-On Neutral configurations; Time Saver diagnostics that provide additional circuit information; and improved troubleshooting. The Time Saver feature will also help contractors and homeowners identify the cause of a trip faster, should it occur, adds Schneider.
