The single module arc fault detection device from Wylex has been crowned a Professional Electrician & Installer 2019 ‘Top Product’ award winner.
These awards are recognition for those manufacturers that have made a real difference to the electrical contractor’s ability to get the job done efficiently, safely and professionally, whether this is in the form of innovative products, tools or time-saving solutions.
The single module arc fault detection device from Wylex is just another innovation for the brand, part of Electrium, which continues to provide customers with products that provide the highest levels of electrical safety for professional installers and their clients.
What is an Arc Fault Detection Device?
This clever little device detects and disconnects arc faults which could lead to an electrical fire in the home.
It also does the job of an MCB and an RCD, and it is able to detect arc faults that other types of technology simply can’t. What’s more, it is the same size as a standard MCB and that means that it can be retrofitted into existing boards to upgrade the levels of protection against electrical fires.
Wylex AFDDs carry out a self-test function when initially powered up, and the AFDD repeats this self-test function every 15 hours. They also have a test button (just like an RCDs or RCBOs), which you can use during the initial verification or EICR. Model certificates now include AFDDs among the devices listed, with space for test results.
PE Editor, Richard Bowler said “Our annual awards are a great way to reward those companies that have come up with excellent ideas to help electrical installers and businesses overcome common problems in their everyday work, or to open up new profit streams. The Mini-AFDD from Wylex is therefore a very worth winner of one of our 2019 Top Product awards.”
Mike Cash, Head of Marketing at Electrium, is delighted that Wylex’s latest device has been recognised by the industry “We’re very happy that Professional Electrician have awarded the Wylex single module AFDD one of their top product awards.
