GE Q-Line 15 Amp Single-Pole Dual Function Arc Fault/GFCI Breaker
The 2014 National Electric Code has mandated Ground Fault and Arc Fault circuit protection on many 15 Amp and 20 Amp kitchen and laundry circuits. General Electric's Dual Function Circuit Interrupter (DFCI) offers both Ground Fault and Combination Arc Fault (GFCI and CAFCI) protection in a simple to apply and cost-effective solution. GFCI protection guards against ground faults are an effective means of preventing electrical shocks. GFCI circuit breakers accomplish this by detecting when current is "leaking" somewhere outside its intended path. If your body provides the path to ground for this "leakage" you could be burned, shocked or even electrocuted. CAFCI protection guards against damage or fires which can result from arcing and sparking that can arise from deteriorated wires, poor connections and breaches in wire insulation. With more than 67,000 home fires claiming more than 485 lives and injuring 2,300 victims annually, the added safety provided by CAFCI protection is an important step forward in reducing this risk.
- GE DFCI has important features for assisting you or your electrician in troubleshooting a trip, should the DFCI trip, the LED will indicate the last known trip condition.
- The test feature allows you to test the arc and ground detection capability by depressing a rocker switch in two directions.
- Unit's last known trip condition can be cleared by performing a series of functions provided in the instructions
- DFCI has a self-test feature that meets a June 2015 requirement from UL on all ground fault circuit breakers
