Does the Eaton GFCI Residential Breaker replace a standard Eaton Circuit Breaker

A standard residential branch breaker provides thermal (over current) and magnetic (short circuit) protection.  If additional protection is required, we also have ground fault breakers and arc fault breakers providing sensing of those conditions respectively.  We also offer a dual purpose breakers that can provide thermal, magnetic, ground fault and arc fault protection.  NEC and local code will dictate which breaker is necessary for a specific application.
