Arc-Fault and Ground-Fault Circuit Breakers were created after NECT (National Electrical Code) in 2014. Now these breakers by Siemens provide good electrical supply and offer two types of the protection in one pack. Also, there are faster than their predecessors and more effective.

Arc-Fault and Ground-Fault Circuit Breakers by Siemens are mechanically operated electrical switch created for protection an electrical circuit from defects which can be caused by current overload or short failure. The basic function of these breakers is to locate a problem and interrupt current flow, when the problem is located.

The Arc-Fault and Ground-Fault Circuit Breakers by Siemens have next characteristics:

  • They are UL listed and CSA certified, as all our products;
  • Also, they are HACR Rated;
  • They have standard 1 inch per pole form and plug-in design.

Besides that, Arc-Fault and Ground-Fault Circuit Breakers by Siemens have Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupters of the Class A for about 5mA.

GFCI (Ground fault circuit interrupters) guarantee Class A ground fault security. A GFCI is an application which is meant for body security and will remove electrical power when a fault current to ground is about 6 mA or more.

Ground fault equipment security of Arc-Fault and Ground-Fault Circuit Breakers by Siemens is about 30mA.

The circuit breakers of the EQF type guarantee safety of arrangement from destruction line-to-ground fault currents by removing electrical power for all ungrounded current collectorss of the failure circuit.

As concerns AFCI (Arc-Fait Circuit Interrupters, they are created for locating arcing fault (an unintended arcing condition in a circuit) what standard circuit breakers are not available to locate.

There are next benefits of this item:

  • AFCI and GFCI are protected by the one device, what gives opportunity use only one point of reset;
  • Protects your electricity from arc and ground faults, what is very important both at the work on the big enterprises and at home on the kitchen;
  • Has lesser cost, because you pay one price for the two items.

Arc-Fait Circuit Interrupters are the special feeder devices which are meant for diminishing the effects of arc-faults by removing electrical power when an arc-fault is located.

We probably sure, that you need such devices at your plants and enterprises and also we sure that Arc-Fault and Ground-Fault Circuit Breakers by Siemens will be your best choice.

Hurry up and but it!
