Leviton Enters Residential Load Center Market

The load center and a line of circuit breakers feature an all “plug-on” design in what the company called a complete reimagining of the load center.

Leviton Manufacturing, Melville, NY, known to generations for its devices and controls, introduced a new product offering that puts it in the middle of the already well-established market for residential power distribution products with the introduction of Leviton Load Center.

The load center and a line of circuit breakers feature an all “plug-on” design in what a Leviton release called a complete reimagining of the load center “to make it more attractive, approachable, and easier for contractors to work with, while improving homeowner safety.”

All branch wires terminate at custom lugs in the panel, making wiring easier and neater and eliminating the need for pigtails, the company said. With this design the entire panel can be terminated at rough-in and all connections are made at the final insertion of the circuit breaker. The design also enables users to switch out branch circuit breakers with no rewiring required.

In the circuit breakers, Leviton has added its patented reset lockout technology to both GFCI and AFCI/GFCI circuit breakers “making them the only true power denial circuit breakers available on the market, exceeding UL safety standards for end-of-life protection,” the company said. AFCI circuit breakers also feature reset lockout technology when the manual test places the device into the tripped state.

 “The Leviton Load Center marks real innovation in the electrical contracting industry—a category that hasn’t seen much change in decades,” said Daryoush Larizadeh, president and chief operating officer of Leviton. “Utilizing our strong, century-long history of creating innovative electrical solutions for the home, we’re driving the industry forward.”
