GFCI protection is vital to ensure electrical safety in both residential and commercial settings. A power interruption due to a ground fault provides important protection to people but can shut down freezers, sump pumps and other necessary equipment if left undetected. Often, however, GFCIs in garages, basements or large commercial kitchens may be located in an out-of-the-way place such as a back corner or storage area making daily visual checks for tripping unlikely. The new SmartlockPro® Slim Self-Test GFCI with Audible Alert is the smart solution. When a condition exists causing the SmartlockPro Slim Self-Test GFCI with Audible Alert to trip, users will be alerted by the sounding of an audible alarm. This audible alert indicates that power has been disconnected from loads plugged into or fed from the GFCI so users can immediately assess the reason and reset the device.
Adding to the list of smart features, the SmartlockPro Slim Self-Test GFCI with Audible Alert tests itself even if you forget. Designed to meet the latest UL standard for auto-monitoring (self-test), the device periodically conducts an automatic internal test to confirm that it can respond to a ground fault.
The Self-Test GFCI with Audible Alert offers all the outstanding benefits you expect from SmartlockPro products. With the slimmest profile on the market, the device allows for fast and easy installation, while Leviton’s patented reset lockout mechanism prevents reset of the GFCI if it is not wired or operating correctly. The SmartlockPro Self-Test GFCI is the smart choice in ground fault circuit interrupter protection.
