Arc Fault Interrupter

What is an Arc-fault interrupter?
A circuit breaker (or receptacle) that can trip off for line-to-neutral arcing (which would not soon trip a standard breaker) or also for in-line (series) arcing. Required for new bedroom circuits since 2002 and most rooms of new houses since 2008. See AFCI.
