Why GFCIs with “Ground Check” Are the Future of Electrical Safety
New technology blends a ground-fault circuit interrupter’s (GFCI’s) fast reaction time with proactive ground monitoring technology, which ensures a safe and reliable ground-fault path. This new pre-emptive approach originated from the special-purpose GFCI (SPGFCI) standard, but it is time to apply it to Class-A GFCIs.

You Will Learn:
This presentation will provide an overview of GFCIs and SPGFCIs and explain why adding a proactive ground monitoring feature to GFCIs is the next step in advancing electrical safety.
The differences in protection between GFCIs and SPGFCIs and the significance of the equipment ground conductor
When each type of protection must be applied according to the latest 2023 National Electrical Code
The importance of choosing the right protection for your specific application
