Electrical Load Center Features Plug-on Design

Leviton GFCI and AFCI/GFCI circuit breakers feature reset lockout technology, exceeding UL safety standards for end-of-life protection.

Leviton has introduced the Leviton Load Center. Featuring an all plug-on design and circuit breakers that exceed UL safety standards, Leviton has reimagined the load center to help contractors work with ease, while improving building owner safety.

With an all plug-on design, the Leviton Load Center can be installed efficiently. All branch wires terminate at custom lugs in the panel, eliminating the need for pigtails. This means the entire panel can be terminated at rough-in. All connections are made at the final insertion of the circuit breaker. The design also enables users to switch out branch circuit breakers with no rewiring required.

Leviton circuit breakers keep building owner safety in mind. Leviton has added its patented reset lockout technology to both GFCI and AFCI/GFCI circuit breakers, exceeding UL safety standards for end-of-life protection. This technology ensures ground-fault protection against electric shock is working at all times. AFCI circuit breakers also feature reset lockout technology when the manual test places the device into the tripped state.

Leviton circuit breakers also feature hydraulic-magnetic trip technology, which operates even in extreme temperatures ranging from -40 C to 85 C.

Unlike other circuit breaker boxes, the Leviton Load Center was designed to complement any interior. Its white enclosure and optional window create an interface that helps building owners understand the status of their building’s power. When a circuit breaker trips, the diagnostics of the Leviton breaker allows identification of the trip condition and the type of fault (arc or ground fault) without the need to reset the circuit breakers. And line side powered electronics ensure LED indicators remain lit, even when tripped.

The culmination of these innovations is a load center that empowers users to take control of the power delivery of a building, while delivering safety that gives builders and owners piece of mind. For electrical contractors, the Leviton Load Center means quick installs and streamlined service.

  1. This was a fascinating read as I had not realized that these kind of upgrades were needed for load centers. But it is cool that this kind of equipment can help contractors more easily work on electrical systems. I imagine that this could be particularly helpful if it helps keep the contractors from getting electrocuted.
