Continuous self-test functionality - disconnects power to receptacle if critical components are damaged and GFCI protection is lost providing continuous self-testing that initiates within 2.5 seconds and is a continuous cycle every 30 seconds or less
Three provisions for providing protection:
Continuous electronic sensing, testing and evaluation utilizing diagnostic software located on the printed circuit board.
Traditional testing mode by manually operating the "test and reset" buttons utilizing a supervisory circuit as specified in UL 943 section 5.15.
Auto-sensing mode for immediate interruption for a ground fault condition for Class A protection (4 - 6 mA).
Manual Test - this design incorporates a full system test function. The GFCI, when manually tested, induces a simulated ground fault leakage current to the printed circuit board. This in turn causes the mechanical system to react based on the action of th
Reverse wire safety feature - if wired incorrectly there will be no power to the face or to downstream receptacles for added safety.
Clear visual indication of GFCI status - LED indicating lights: Green LED (power to the device) Red LED (trip condition/ground fault condition) Flashing Red LED (end of life)
Permanently installed internal tamper-resistant shutter mechanism capable of resisting insertion of foreign elements into the device.
Internal back wiring clamp and guide pocket - quick and dependable termination.
