  • Arc-fault circuit breakers contain a specially designed microprocessor, which monitors current flow through the device. Arcing electricity, such as from a pinched lamp cord, produces an irregular current flow pattern. The microprocessor in the device is designed to "recognize" this irregular current pattern and trip the device - disconnecting power from the circuit.
