How do I install and test CH & BR Arc Fault / Ground Fault Circuit Breakers?

The Eaton Series of CH and BR Arc Fault and Ground Fault Breakers are installed like standard breakers with the exception of two additional steps. BR and CH dual purpose AF/GF breakers will follow the same procedures below:

Step 1) The white pigtail coming from the breaker must be connected to the load center neutral bar.

Step 2) The load neutral is inserted into the lug under the white dot on the breaker (For a two-pole breaker without a load neutral, Step 2 is not required)

Testing Arc Fault / Ground Fault Breakers

The test procedure located within the instruction leaflets below is the only approved method of testing the arc fault and ground fault breakers.
