New Leviton Load Centre revolutionises Power Distribution
Leviton, a leading brand of smart, whole-home electrical solutions, is raising the bar in power distribution with the introduction of the Leviton Load Centre. Featuring an all plug-on design (For applications up to 60A when using copper wire, or 50A when using aluminium) and circuit breakers that exceed UL safety standards, the company has completely reimagined the load centre to make it more attractive, approachable, and easier for contractors to work with, while improving homeowner safety.
With an all plug-on design, the Leviton Load Centre can be installed more efficiently compared to competitive products. All branch wires terminate at custom lugs in the panel, making wiring easier and neater—and 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 innovative design also enables users to switch out branch circuit breakers with no rewiring required.
Leviton circuit breakers keep homeowner safety in mind. The company has added its patented reset lockout technology to both GFCI and AFCI/GFCI circuit breakers making them the only true power denial circuit breakers available on the market, exceeding UL safety standards for end-of-life protection. This technology ensures ground-fault protection against electric shock is always working, whereas power from competitive circuit breakers will continue to flow under some exceptions allowed by UL only for circuit breakers. AFCI circuit breakers also feature reset lockout technology when the manual test places the device into the tripped state.
Leviton circuit breakers also feature rugged hydraulic-magnetic trip technology, which operates reliably, even in extreme temperatures ranging from -40°C to 85°C. This offers an added layer of safety typically only available in commercial grade products.
