The electrical receptacles on a boat or at a boatyard/marina can easily be compromised due to corrosion or the rugged conditions that often exist in today's marine environment. Hubbell Marine's new Extra Heavy-Duty Ground Fault Receptacle is the first corrosion-resistant model in the market. Its rugged, durable construction and numerous safety features make it a superior option for any vessel, marina or boatyard.

The internal and external components are nickel plated and its mounting screws and terminal screws are made of stainless steel, ensuring reliability in any weather. Hubbell Marine's new triple-wipe contact design provides exceptional electrical and thermal performance through its nickel-plated 7025 high-performance copper alloy.

For safety, patented technology constantly tests GFCI functionality. Internal software utilizes an algorithm to determine the device's condition and display it on dual lighted indicators on the receptacle's face. Green indicates power, red signals a trip and flashing red warns of the receptacle's end of life. Large buttons allow easy device test and reset.

Available in 15A and 20A models that are both tamper and weather resistant, colors include brown, black, gray, ivory, red, white, and yellow.
