Sparky:

Took a few to find this, hope the copy/paste trick works....

"Plug-on Neutral Combination Type AFCI
brings time savings and a neater loadcenter
thus enabling contractors to meet the
2008 National Electrical Code and not
compromise time and neatness."

Ah...the text only, not the pic

Anyway, here's the link/site

http://www.eaton.com/EatonCom/Markets/Electrical/Products/ResidentialProducts/index.htm

Right side column, 'tab 4'; catalogs; advanced residential....ya get a PDF, & it's on page 38.

(That's the breaker)

yeah i see the breaker, and then the pictoral of it in the nuetral buss HotOne, thanks....

on one hand, that would neaten things up, it's been tie wrap city trying to fill a panel full of nuetrals with 30 afci's in a 40 circuit can

otoh, i'd need to change my breaker stock out to those, and then they'd not fit in older panels

i guess if it comes into general usage, i'd go with them...

John,


You have to use ACFI for dining room lights, but not for the kitchen lights, right?
