radiant® dual function AFCI/GFCI receptacles are the latest innovation in electrical safety and a code approved alternative to dual function AFCI/GFCI breakers. Designed to protect against electrical fires caused by arc faults and injury due to electrical shock, these new devices are compliant with NEC® AFCI and GFCI requirements in kitchens and laundry areas for new construction, circuit modifications/extensions and replacement receptacles. Like GFCI receptacles, AFCI/GFCI receptacles are installed in the living space so homeowners can see the indicator light and perform TEST and RESET locally. The radiant® AFCI/GFCI receptacle has separate indicator lights for AFCI and GFCI, making it easy to distinguish between a trip caused by an arc fault and a trip caused by a ground fault. This means less confusion for the homeowner and therefore fewer callbacks for the contractor. Unlike AFCI/GFCI breakers which must match the brand of the breaker box radiant® AFCI/GFCI receptacles fit any wall box, reducing inventory. The GFCI function has a self-test feature that tests itself every three seconds instead of the industry standard 3 hr providing an unprecedented level of protection.
