An arc-fault occurs when loose or corroded connections make intermittent contact and causes sparking or arcing between the connections. This translates into heat, which will break down the insulations of the wire and potentially trigger an electrical fire. Such arc’s can range in power and vary a great deal in strength and duration.
M2 has introduced it’s AFR range of combined arc fault detection devices (AFDDs) with integral short circuit, overload and earth leakage protection (RCBOs) offering complete circuit protection.
And, whether you’re adding to an installation or installing a new unit, the AFR device is compatible with the existing busbar system saving you time and money on site.
