Greegoo's Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) detects arc faults and de-energizes the circuit before a fire can start, is coming soon.

Electrical fires in homes break many result from arc faults. Arc faults are unintended electrical arcs that may ignite combustible materials in the home. Four types of arc faults may occur: line-to-line, line-to-ground, line-to-neutral, or a series arc fault, which is arcing over a gap within a single wire.

Arc Faults may arise from a number of situations
• Damaged wires
• Wires pinched to grounded metal box
• Worn electrical insulation
• Corroded connections
• Loose electrical connections
• Shorted wires
• Wires or cords in contact with vibrating metal
• Overheated or stressed electrical cords and wires
• Misapplied/damaged appliances

Greegoo's combination AFCIs help protect against all types of arc faults

An arc fault circuit interrupter (AFCI) detects arc faults and de-energizes the circuit before a fire can start. GE Combination AFCIs offer multiple kinds of protection.
1. Parallel protection − Combination AFCIs can detect and interrupt parallel arc faults (line-to-line, line-to-ground, line-to-neutral, or a series arc fault).
2. Series Protection − A series arc fault is the unintended flow of electricity over a gap within a single wire. These arc faults were not detectable until advanced technology allowed the development of the Combination AFCI breaker.
3. Overload protection.
4. Short circuit protection.


These combination AFCIs electronically identify unique current and voltage characteristics of all arc faults and de-energize the entire circuit when one occurs.
