What is a GFCI Breaker?

Has it ever crossed your mind as to what a GFCI Breaker is? Well, let’s chat about it for a second shall we?

A GFCI Breaker is a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter Breaker. They are an effective means of preventing severe electrical shocks. GFCI’s are installed to protect areas of the home, such as the kitchen, bathroom or laundry, where electrical appliances or products may come into contact with water.

GFCI’s are designed to protect against severe electrical shocks or electrocution from ground faults. Ground faults occur when the electrical current in an appliance strays outside its normal path, and the human body becomes part of the path through which the electrical current may flow.

To protect equipment from damaging ground faults, GFCI’s continuously monitor the difference in current between the hot and neutral conductors. If the electricity going to the outlet equals the current coming back from the outlet, the GFCI is dormant. If the electricity going to an outlet is greater than 5mA than the current coming back from the outlet, the GFCI will open the circuit to stop flow of electricity.

Features and Benefits:

  • Suitable for a variety of construction applications: spas, hot tubs, kitchens, bathrooms, etc.
  • Resists false tripping (shielded to prevent RF interference).
  • Standard 1 inch per pole format with plug-in design.
  • Also available in BLF type (low tab bolt-on).
