It looks like Leviton has AFCI receptacles.
Does anyone else now/yet?

Can they replace regular receptacles?

Pass & Seymour (P&S) Legrand has had a phantom device that pops up occasionallyinpics. Ihave never seen it, nor have I seen a Leviton device yet.

I haven't seen any of them yet. I wonder how well they will work?

Harold:
Ihave not seen anyasof yet. I requested a 'sample' from Leviton, but heard nothing.

P&S Legrand salesman only had the prototype last time I spoke to him, and that was 'his'.
