AFDD's and Nuisance Tripping
Possible causes of nuisance tripping could be an ageing fridge freezer for example. Will we have the same issue with Arc Fault Detection Devices? A final circuit protected by an RCD and an AFDD could cause a lot more nuisance and unwanted tripping. Of course if an RCD, RCBO or AFDD trips then it's doing it's job as intended but for the end user it could just be an annoyance to them but at the end of the day safety has to come first.
