Welcome to the Schneider Electric Website

Welcome to our website.
An arc fault is not always easy to see, since it can occur in hidden places such as damaged cables, inside walls, a loose connection in a hidden junction box, or outlet sockets.

Arc fault fires: how they start

Very localised phenomena can cause an electrical fire. Check out this video to see how a loose wire in a standard multi-socket can arc and start a fire.

An AFDD’s Purpose

AFDDs fit into electrical switchboards alongside other protective equipment. When a fault is detected, the device immediately isolates the circuit, preventing ignition of flammable materials.

An AFDD detects the appearance of electric arcs that are responsible for starting fires. They are extremely sensitive, designed to sense and respond only to potentially dangerous arcs.
