FM100 GFI vs FM100 AFCI - upgradable?

Post by clarkef »

Just bought four FM100’s a little over a year ago. They are, of course, not the new AFCI that’s just hitting the supply chain.

I like to idea of integrated AFCI in the new models. Has Outback considered an exchange or upgrade offering for the 1st gen FM100’s to the new AFCI model?

Hi Clarke, happy new year!

We do not have an exchange program at this time BUT we do plan to roll out a program to encourage installers to try the newest model soon. Within a few months, you will be able to register to receive a cash rebate by sending in a new OPTICS site name with an operational FM100 AFCI. Details will be announced soon.
