Lighting Design & Specification

 

Legrand AFCI ReceptacleAimed at the residential market, Legrand’s new Pass & Seymour arc fault circuit interrupter (AFCI) receptacle protects against electrical fires by detecting arc faults and de-energizing the circuit. It has a ground terminal back-wire for fast installation and an auto-ground clip assures a positive ground to metal box. The device is high-impact-resistant and its thermoplastic construction provides superior strength and durability. It takes #14-#10 AWG stranded or solid, copper or copper clad conductors. Two back-wire holes per termination add wiring flexibility and not only eliminate pig tailing, but also save box space. The 125V receptacle is Fed Spec, FSUL and UL and CSA Listed, and is available in 15A and 20A versions and a variety of colours.

“An electrical fire can have catastrophic consequences for all involved,” says Bill Timmons, marketing manager of residential products for Legrand Electrical Wiring Systems. “Our new P&S AFCI Receptacle not only increases electrical safety in the home, but also provides significant benefits to contractors who install these devices.”

AFCI receptacles do not have to match the circuit breaker box brand like AFCI circuit breakers need to. They fit into any wall box in the living area of a home. Contractors no longer need to carry a variety of AFCI circuit breakers on their truck, they can carry a smaller and more streamlined inventory of AFCI Receptacles and always have the right product available.
