Brooks Power provides Custom GFCI Power Strips for all your needs! GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) is a special type of outlet that detects dangerous ground faults and immediately turns off the power to stop shocks. Essentially, it is a fast-acting circuit breaker designed to shut off electric power in the event of a ground-fault within as little as 1/40 of a second. It works by comparing the amount of current going to and returning from equipment along the circuit conductors.The GFCI plug is attached to the end of the power cord protecting both outlets and loads plugged into the power strip’s receptacles. All Brooks Power Systems models that are rated 15 Amps or 20 Amps at 125 Volts and ETL Certified to UL1363 (Standard for Relocatable Power Taps) now have the option of being GFCI protected.
Custom GFCI Power Strips
GFCI outlets exist to protect people from electrical shock — it is completely different from a house fuse. The idea behind a fuse is to protect a structure from an electrical fire. If the hot wire were to accidentally touch the neutral wire for some reason (say, because a mouse chews through the insulation, or someone drives a nail through the wire while hanging a picture, or the vacuum cleaner sucks up an outlet cord and cuts it), an incredible amount of current will flow through the circuit and start heating it up like one of the coils in a toaster. The fuse heats up faster than the wire and burns out before the wire can start a fire. Catastrophe averted.
The addition of this feature in Brooks Power Systems products increases overall safety especially when used in compromised locations or near water sources.
