Switching arcs caused by fluorescent lighting, for example, should not cause an AFDD to operate. AFDDs can be installed in distribution boards and consumer units to protect final circuits and should be installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. When installing components from a different manufacturer to that of the existing equipment in a distribution board or consumer unit, it is important to seek advice from the manufacturer that the new equipment is suitable and compatible.Regulation 443.4.2 requires protection against overvoltages to be considered in the case of equipment likely to produce switching overvoltages or disturbances and gives conditions.
