GFCI Receptacle protects against shock

by Martin Flory Group 23 May 2019 16:56 PDT

Having an electrical outlet capable of monitoring and shutting itself off makes for one less thing to worry about while on the water. Areas such as the galley or head can be made much safer by utilizing ground fault circuit interrupter receptacles. The GFCI Duplex Receptacle from Hubbell Marine is UL-listed and designed to protect people from line-to-ground electrical shock hazards.

Hubbell Marine's GFCI Duplex Receptacle complies with 2015 UL 943 by automatically monitoring circuit functionality at least every three hours. In the event of a ground fault with leakage levels exceeding four to six milliamperes, the GFCI unit instantly opens the circuit to interrupt the power supply and protect the user. Once tripped, the feed-thru feature prevents damage to any other receptacle farther down the same circuit by inhibiting electricity flow.

The receptacle's status is relayed by an illuminated indicatorgreen while operating, solid red when tripped and flashing red at the device's end of life. An integrated button enables resetting after any circuit tripping. Users can also conveniently check the functionality of the GFCI at any time by pressing the test button.

The Hubbell GFCI Duplex Receptacle can mount in any standard 6.53mm box and accepts locking fork terminals. It meets the National Electric Code (NEC) and American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) standards.

To accommodate a wide range of interior finishes, it is available in white, ivory, gray and brown. A matching nylon wall plate comes standard. A gray or white PVC weatherproof lift cover is available for installations exposed to the elements.
