  • 05/22/2014

What You Need To Know about Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupter Changes in the NEC

Join Electrical Contractor and Leviton on Thursday, May 22 to build your expertise in guiding customers about solutions to help make their homes safer and compliant with the 2014 National Electric Code (NEC®) updates. As the latest iteration of the NEC continues to adapt and promote the use of arc-fault circuit interrupter (AFCI) devices, we’ll guide you through what you need to know to meet code changes. The webinar will highlight the issues with arc faults – what they are, how they are caused and the types – and demonstrate what AFCI protection in homes is readily available. We’ll also introduce the latest solution to help prevent arc-faults: the AFCI receptacle.
