Leviton SmartlockPro® Outlet Branch Circuit (OBC) AFCI Receptacle

Leviton SmartlockPro AFCI

To help meet the updated AFCI protection requirements in the 2011 and 2014 National Electrical Code, the Leviton SmartlockPro OBC Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupter Receptacle provides the solutions and options that electrical contractors need. This compact, easy-to-install receptacle fits easily into many plans for new branch circuits, branch circuit modifications or extensions and receptacle replacements.

The AFCI receptacle detects arc-faults anywhere in the circuit or its extensions, such as appliances and cord sets, and responds by interrupting power. This capability was previously limited to a circuit breaker at the panel board; having it in a duplex receptacle creates a variety of options for installers. For example, modifications or extensions can be made to circuits on older panels for which there are no available AFCI breakers. In this case, an AFCI receptacle can be added as the first outlet to an existing circuit. AFCI receptacles provide downstream feed-through protection for both series and parallel arc-faults as well as upstream series arc-fault protection.

The Leviton SmartlockPro OBC Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupter Receptacle also features localized TEST and RESET functions, so users can conveniently reset the receptacle in the event it has tripped and easily conduct the recommended monthly testing without having to access a circuit breaker panel. These functions make the receptacle ideal for applications such as MDU or student housing, where end users may have limited or restricted access to panel boards.
