While checking into a AFCI question I came across some interesting info.
There is no such thing as an AFCI tester, only AFCI indicators. :shock:
Check out this article from the IAEI, (International Association Of Electrical Inspectors) http://www.iaei.org/magazine/05_c/pauley.htm
Here is the last paragraph of the Article
The bottom line is that the test button on the AFCI is the only recognized method for testing the proper operation of the AFCI. An AFCI indicator may be a nice way to determine if a particular circuit is connected to an AFCI, but it provides no definitive answer on whether an AFCI is properly working or not.
Anyone here spend good money on a 'Tester' only to find it is an 'Indicator'?
Why is it that all things AFCI associated are questionable?
