Leviton today announced its new SmartlockPro® Dual Function AFCI/GFCI Receptacle. An industry first, this new receptacle provides both Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) protection to help prevent electrical fires caused by arcing conditions and Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) protection to help prevent users from shock or electrocution due to ground faults.

The SmartlockPro Dual Function AFCI/GFCI Receptacle offers a National Electrical Code® (NEC®) compliant option for AFCI/GFCI protection in residential kitchens and laundry areas for new construction, modifications/extensions and replacement receptacles. The device replaces a standard receptacle and is also ideal as a replacement for ungrounded receptacles, satisfying NEC requirements for both AFCI and GFCI protection.

With test and reset buttons readily accessible on the device face, the SmartlockPro Dual Function AFCI/GFCI Receptacle offers convenience for homeowners to test the device monthly or to respond to a trip. The Status Indicator Light, also on the face of the device, provides a clear and intuitive at-a-glance visual indication to the user of the status of AFCI and GFCI protection normal working state, miswiring, or an AFCI or GFCI trip, which may identify a potential problem.

As an added safeguard, the SmartlockPro Dual Function AFCI/GFCI Receptacle features Leviton’s patented Reset Lockout, which prevents the device from being reset in the event it is not functioning properly, if protection has been compromised or if the line and load wires were reversed during installation.

“Electrical safety is priority at Leviton and we’re pleased to now offer the first receptacle that helps protect against two important electrical safety issues fire and shock,” said Bill Grande, Leviton’s Director of Safety Products. “SmartlockPro Dual Function AFCI/GFCI Receptacles help create a safer living environment and are important to have in every home.”

The SmartlockPro® Dual Function AFCI/GFCI Receptacle comes in Tamper Resistant 15 Amp and 20 Amp models. The devices meet all applicable Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA) requirements and come with a two-year limited product warranty.

SmartlockPro® Dual Function AFCI/GFCI Receptacles are now available through Leviton’s network of retail, online and electrical distribution channels, including its online store store.leviton.com/.
