What are the main causes of iARC Arc detector's tripping.

If an arc detector has tripped because of its electronic monitoring (red square is visible) it is generally for one of 4 following reasons:

1. Unbalanced current between phase and neutral because neutral cable connected to the arc detector does not correspond to the phase (neutral crossing with another circuit).

2. Arc between conductors (phase and neutral / phase and PE / neutral and PE).

3. Arc on the same conductor (loose contact in a cable or a connection).

4. Network overvoltage (neutral break).
