2014 NEC and arc-fault breakers


Recommended Posts

So if you been reading national electrical codes (and are from 'merica), you may have noticed that the 2014 code stipulates use of arc fault breakers.


I haven't tried one yet with a large amplifier, but I could easily see this being problematic.


Any experiences?

I have a pair of Classe CA-M300 300 watt mono amps on a 20 amp circuit with an arc fault breaker. Never had any problems. The vacuum cleaner, however, trips the arc fault breaker (different circuit to amps) all the time.
