An AFDD’s PurposeAFDDs 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.
