an electrical safety device which monitors current flowing from Hot to Neutral
an electronic device for protecting people from serious injury due to electric shock
a safety device installed to protect people from receiving a shock in the event of an electrical malfunction and will shut the power down if it senses a problem
a safety feature that shuts off the power very quickly in an emergency (i
a shock-protection device that will detect electrical fault and shut off electricity before serious injury or death occurs
a simple device reasonably priced

Ground Fault Current Interrupter (GFCI) pfrotects user from accedential electrocution (for electric powered pressure washers only). More information on ground fault current interrupters.
(Ground-fault circuit interrupter): A device that detects an insulation failure by comparing the amount of current flowing to electrical equipment with the amount of current returning from the equipment. Whenever the difference is greater than 5 milliamps, the GFCI trips and thereby interrupts the flow of electricity.
ground fault circuit interrupter. safety device (usually wall plug) which breaks a circuit to prevent shock; usually found in bathrooms, kitchens, around pools, etc.
See Ground Fault Current Interrupter
Stands for ground fault current interrupter. This will sense current flow from the line conductors in a power circuit to ground conductor and activate a relay to open both conductors.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt. Type of circuit breaker used for controlling electrical power to the spa. The GFCI breaker senses power leaks and automatically cuts power to the circuit.
A life safety device commonly used in outdoor, bathroom, & kitchen locations limits ground fault current to 5 milliamp.
Ground-fault circuit interrupter: A special circuit breaker, especially in a GFCI receptacle, that reacts to an abnormal electrical condition in a fraction of a second.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. A power receptacle that reduces the hazards of ground fault currents that can cause injury or death. Upon detecting a ground fault current in a protected circuit, a GFCI will trip, resulting in the removal of power.
A device that will sense current flow in milliamps, from live conductors to ground. When a fault current to ground is sensed, the power to load is automatically stopped. This prevents electrical shocks to operators around the generator, when grounding is faulty. This is an OSHA requirement for all 120 VAC electrical circuits at a temporary job-site.
round ault ircuit nterrupter. A device to cut off the flow of electricity if a short circuit is detected.
Abbreviation for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. A type of protected circuit breaker now required in areas containing water lines.
A type of device, e.g. circuit breaker or receptacle, which detects an abnormal current flow to ground and opens the circuit preventing a hazardous situation.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. A specialized electrical device that will interrupt electrical power where a weak electrical loss of ground occurs. Normally located in areas where water may be present.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. A device that is used to protect from injury caused by contact with stray electrical currents that could be the result of faulty appliances or wiring, or water getting into an outlet. GFCI's are required in most new home construction. Commonly referred to as GFI for short.
ground fault circuit interrupter-a device that detects current leakage from a circuit to ground and shuts the current off
An electrical safety device in the receptacle that shuts off electrical current when there is a potential for electrical shock. Primarily used in bathrooms, garages and outdoor fixtures.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. A protective device that rapidly de-energizes a circuit when current to ground exceeds a predetermined value.
Ground fault circuit interrupter. a safety device that senses any shock hazard and interrupts the flow of electricity in the circuit. They are required in new home bathrooms, kitchen, garage, out of doors and in other locations where one might be in contact with a grounded surface and an electrical appliance. Most GFI's are located in the receptacle itself and can be identified by the presence of a 'test' and a 'reset' button.
(ground fault circuit interrupter). An electrical safety device that instantly shuts down a circuit if a leakage occurs. Codes commonly require them on bathroom and outdoor circuits.
See Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter.
A ground fault circuit interrupter is a safety device to protect against electrical shock by cutting off the flow of electricity when there is even a slight stray of current leakage.
GROUND FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER. A device to cut off the flow of electricity if a short circuit is detected.
