Schneider Electric Canada has announced that it is working with the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) on a voluntary recovery for its Square D and Federal Pioneer Arc Fault Interrupter (AFI) circuit breakers. <br>
The products may not provide arc detection capability due to the failure of a third-party supplied internal component in the electronic detection circuit.<br>
The recovery relates to Square D QO and Homeline (Canada and the U.S.) and Federal Pioneer Stab-lok (Canada) 15- and 20-amp AFI circuit breakers manufactured between March 1 and September 23, 2004. While the breakers will continue to function like a regular circuit breaker, providing short circuit and overload protection, they may not detect a high resistance, low current arcing fault. <br>
The products are typically installed in residential and light commercial applications.<br>
