Arc Fault Detection Devices, AFDD – defence against electrical fires in your home or rental property.
Homes should be a safe haven for you, your loved ones and your rental tenants.
Electrical technology now mean there is a safer way to protect your home and family from electrical fire danger, an Arc fault detection device (AFFD). Arc fault detection device.
An Arc Fault Detection Device (AFDD) is a detection and tripping device which protects against electrical fires caused by arc faults.
Arc faults are commonly caused by a damaged cable or a poor connection, such as pulled-out sockets, cables squashed under
furniture and loose conections.
AFDD's are incorporated into your home’s switchboard and can be installed in both new and established homes. They are particularly important in older homes where the cabling has been identified as Tough Rubber Sheathed Cable (TRS) and can minimise risk on this cable causing fires.
Unlike smoke detectors and extinguishers which act after the fire begins, AFDD's are designed to trip (like a circuit breaker) before the faulty connections, cables or sockets experiencing arcing ignite. This reduces the risk.
Some AFDD's can also work as a miniature circuit breaker (MCB) so can offer dual functionality, which means it can be used in place of an MCB in your home’s switchboard. Current residential circuit protection devices (RCD and MCB's) cannot detect arc faults.
Currently AFDD's offer the best available defence from arc faults and electrical fires. We generally add the devices to the circuits that are most at risk such as as living areas and bedrooms.
