What is an Arc Fault Detection Device?
An AFDD is a detection device that automatically cuts the electricity supply when it detects an arc fault in a circuit. By immediately cutting off the electricity supply, AFDDs help to prevent arc faults from reaching temperatures where fires can break out. AFDDs fit into electrical switchboards alongside other protective equipment. When an arc fault is detected, the device immediately isolates the circuit, preventing ignition of flammable materials. An AFDD detects the appearance of electric arcs that are responsible for starting fires. They are extremely sensitive, designed to sense and respond only to potentially dangerous arcs.

Arc Fault Detection Devices help to reduce the risk of electrical fire.
Broken wires, loose connections, crushed cables can all cause hidden arc faults in electrical circuits, which if left undetected, can erupt into flames in just seconds. AFDDs isolate the circuit the moment an arc fault is detected. Arc faults are one of the main causes of electrical fires. Electrical fires due to arc faults are surprisingly common especially in older homes. Electrical fires cause considerable damage to property, injuries and deaths each year

Some Key Facts Are 

  • Every year about 12,000 fires are reported from Australian homes
  • 40% of fires in homes are related to electrical fault and appliances
  • About 60 lives are lost each year due to fires in Australian homes
  • Millions are spent in repairing damage caused by fires in homes

How Do Arc Faults Occur?

  • Electrical cables bent in tight radius
  • Loose plugs in sockets
  • Cables damaged from screws and fastners
  • Poor termination of electrical circuits
  • Worn insulation on electrical cables
  • Exposed wiring
  • Pinched electrical cables
  • Pests / Vermin damage to electrical cables
