Cord Type AFCI

True-Safe’s technology can be applied to cord type AFCIs of the combination type which affords circuit protection against low and high current arcs. Low current arcs are those that occur along a current-carrying conductor such as a loose terminal connection, whereas, high current arcs are those that occur between two current-carrying conductors which sometimes are mistakenly thought of as a short circuit because of the intensity of the arcs. These are classified under UL Standard 1699 as Cord Type AFCIs and also as Portable AFCIs although they are qualified the same way as Branch circuit/Feeder type since they provide complete circuit protection to all downstream outlets and connections . These products are typically offered with ratings of 15A and 20A at 120V system voltage.
