Siemens’ CAFIs are 2015 CEC-compliant



January 11, 2016 – Siemens wants to spread the word that its combination arc fault circuit interrupters (CAFIs) are in compliance with the new Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) Rule 26-724(f).

This rule requires all branch circuits in dwelling units supplying 125V receptacles rated 20A or less to be protected by a combination-type arc-fault circuit interrupter (AFCI), except that branch circuits supplying receptacles installed in accordance with Rules 26-710 (f) and 26-712(d) (i), (iii), (iv) and (v), and those supplying only one receptacle for the connection of a cord-connected sump pump, are exempt from the requirement for arc-fault protection.
