Does the AFI breaker detect loose electrical connections?

The breaker will not detect or trip due to a loose connection. It must see a minimum of 50A arc current for the AFI function to activate. It provides line-neutral arc-fault protection between 50A and the mag trip level of the breaker. At current levels above the mag trip level for the breaker, it will trip whether or not it is an arc fault. It also has 50 mA ground-fault protection which provides protection for leakage to ground.
