Time-saving Square D QO™ and Homeline™ Dual-Function Circuit Breakers

Schneider Square D QO and Homeline Circuit Breakers

Will Your Circuit Breakers Make The Cut?

For every contractor and installer, code requirements are always on your mind. And changing code means you have even more to think about:

The 2014 National Electrical Code (NEC) now requires both Combination Arc Fault (CAFI) and Ground Fault (GFCI) protection on all 1-Pole, 15 A, and 20 A kitchen and laundry circuits. That is why Schneider Electric created the first Dual Function Circuit Breaker. The Dual Function Circuit Breaker meets 2014 NEC Code requirements and quickly responds when a hazardous condition occurs.

In the days before the DualFunction circuit breaker, contractors and homeowners had only one choice: To use a Combination Arc Fault circuit breaker in conjunction with an expensive, bulky Ground Fault receptacle. This added cost and difficulty to a job, since two separate devices were needed for critical protection.

Two Jobs, One Simple Solution

Luckily, now there’s a better way. Dual Function circuit breakers help reduce cost and eliminate the hassle of using two separate devices to provide critical protection. (It’s a win-win for contractors and homeowners alike.)
