A ground fault circuit interrupter, called a GFCI or GFI, is an inexpensive electrical device that can be installed in your electrical system to protect you from severe electrical shocks. GFCIs have played a key role in reducing electrocutions. Greater use of GFCIs could further reduce electrocutions and mitigate thousands of electrical burn and shock injuries still occurring in and around the home each year. Ground fault protection is integrated into GFCI receptacles for installation into your electrical system, especially for circuit outlets in particularly vulnerable areas such as where electrical equipment is near water.
The Self-Test GFCI with Safelock Protection meets the 2015 UL 943 standard,Which are: Prevents the unsafe condition of power without protection. An automatic test is conducted every five minutes ensuring it is always ready to protect. If the device fails the test,the red indicator light flashes to signal that the GFCI should be replaced. It also has our proven SafeLock Protection feature:if critical components are damaged and protection is lost,power to the receptacle will be disconnected.
