Ground fault circuit interrupter, abbreviated as GFCI, senses an imbalance between outgoing and incoming current and shuts down the electricity. It is a type of circuit breaker
that prevents overheating of electric wiring and receptacles in the house or from a possible fire. It cuts the power within 30 milliseconds and protects people from electrical shock. An AGCI plug gets integrated on the outlet and GFCI can monitor the amount of electric power that is going into an electronic appliance. The GFCI outlet has a built-in Test and Reset button. Also known as Residual Current Device (RDC), GFCI plugs are most suitable and recommended to be installed in all wet and damp locations of the house. These include kitchens, bathrooms, basements, laundry rooms, boathouses, wet bar sinks areas and crawl spaces. GFCI for personnel use is extremely sensitive and most commonly recommended than the less sensitive AFCI breaker. It only opens the circuit when it detects arcs caused by loose connections.
