Video: How to wire arc fault, ground fault, or dual function breaker in QO or HOM load center

Issue:
How are arc fault, ground fault, or dual function breakers in a QO or HOM load center wired?

Product Line:
Load Centers

Environment:
Installation

Cause:
Procedure clarification

Resolution:

The hot wire(s) would be wired to the hot wire terminals on the breaker (closer to the top, colored brass). The load neutral (MUST be dedicated neutral; otherwise, nuisance tripping will occur) would be wired to the load neutral terminal on the breaker (near the bottom of the breaker, colored silver). The ground wire, if there is one in the circuit, would be wired to the ground bar. The white pigtail wire from the breaker would be connected to the neutral bar. See attached video.
