Eaton recently introduced cost-saving enhancements to its loadcenter designs, resulting in lower installation costs for electrical contractors, according to the company. The new patent-pending Cutler-Hammer plug-on neutral arc-fault circuit interrupter (AFCI) reduces installation time by eliminating the extra step of wiring the neutral of the breaker to the neutral bar. This is accomplished by the addition of a metal stab on the breaker that clips onto an inboard neutral bar of the loadcenter. This new design is optional on the company’s Premium CH loadcenters. The new loadcenter is also designed to accept all standard CH circuit breakers.
