To improve fire safety in PV systems, Article 690.11 of the 2011 National Electrical Code (NEC) requires photovoltaic (PV) systems above 80 V on or penetrating a building to include a listed arc fault protection device. Many arc fault circuit interrupter devices are currently being listed and entering the market.
