Hi there fellow electricians.First off I live in southren calif.As of january 1,2002
New code requires all bedrooms to be protected by an (A.F.C.I)I think this code should have taken affect long ago.1st problem when they designed these new breakers did it not dawn on them to come out with a tester.So that we could check the proper operation of these things.There is one that I have seen at the wholesale house put out by Etcon.But I belive that there was a problem with them so I did not purchase one.Is there any safe one's ava???
