GFCI and Safety Systems

According to the definition of the National Electrical Code has defined GFCI as “a device purposely intended for the personnel protection functioning to de-energize a portion or a circuit thereof within an established time period when a current to ground exceeds some predetermined value that is less than that to operate the over current protective device of the supply circuit.”

GFCI is the full form of ground fault circuit interrupter. The ground fault conditions are responsible for nearly two–thirds of the electrical deaths, and it could be preventive of the proper GFCI device installation. The risk of electrocution is admirably reduced with the help of the GFCI that shuts off the electric circuit just as the current is detected to follow along with the path that is unintended.
