Arc Fault Ground Fault (AF/GF) Receptacles
Arc Fault Ground Fault (AF/GF) receptacles are designed with the safety of the user in mind. Eaton’s AF/GF receptacles protect against both unexpected paths to ground and unseen arc faults that can result in electrical fires. The NEC requires GFCI or AFCI protection on certain circuits in residential, commercial, and industrial applications – in some cases both AFCI and GFCI protection are required on the same circuit. These receptacles are UL Listed and fully compliant with all of the latest UL943 Class A GFCI and UL1699A requirements and protect against both series and parallel arcs. Eaton’s AF/GF receptacles include tamper resistant shutters to provide compliance with the 2017 NEC Article 406.12 that states that all receptacles installed in dwelling units must be tamper resistant. Additionally, these AF/GF receptacles incorporate lock-out functionality, which denies power if mis-wired to protect against mis-wired line-load connections and damage the AFCI/GFCI circuitry.
