CH Circuit Breakers

Eaton's residential CH circuit breakers provide premium overload protection. The Type CH circuit breakers trip to the OFF position, eliminating nuisance callbacks.

The CHF family also includes a trip flag to differentiate between a trip and the breaker being turned off. The thermal-magnetic trip curve avoids nuisance tripping on mild overloads while reacting almost instantaneously to severe short-circuit conditions. Multiple breakers have an internal common trip connection to operate all poles simultaneously. Handles are marked with ON-OFF indication and ampere rating of the breaker.

What is an AFCI?

How to reset and identify trip codes.

Core features

  • AFCI
    • Advanced electronics to reduce unwanted tripping from non-compliant devices.
    • Standard LED indicates one of seven trip codes to simplify circuit diagnostics.
    • Trip codes are stored permanently into the breaker’s memory, to help identify “trip” history.
    • Branch overvoltage protection for sensitive electronics.
    • Meets areas requiring AFCI protection under the 200 and all subsequent edition of the NEC.
  • GFCI
    • One pole breakers 15–30A
    • 5mA protection per UL943
  • Plug-on neutral 
    • Time savings up to 25% per AFCI and GFCI installation
    • Improved wireway access
    • Easier troubleshooting due to less wiring
    • Eliminates unwanted tripping due to loose pigtail connections
  • Limited lifetime warranty on all CH products

Reducing the risk of home fires

Arcing faults are responsible for starting more than 28,000 home fires and causing over $700 million in property damage each year in the United States. Eaton's arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) can detect these arcs behind the walls and quickly turn off power before an arc causes a potential fire.

Reducing the risk of shock

Eaton's ground fault current interrupters (GFCIs) provide superior safety where electricity may come into contact with water. GFCIs are required in any application near water such as kitchen countertops, bathrooms, swimming pools, hot tubs, and outdoor receptacles. They immediately break the circuit when electrical current leakage is detected, reducing the risk of shock and electrocution.

Dual purpose circuit protection

Eaton’s arc fault/ground ground (AF/GF) circuit interrupters were developed in response to the 2014 National Electrical Code that now requires AFCI protection in kitchens and laundry areas as well as the historical requirement of ground fault protection. The AF/GF circuit interrupter provides quick installation and a single location to easily access and identify tripped circuits.
