What are the safety benefits of installing ground fault circuit interrupter (GCFI) outlets?

  1. Prevents electrical shocks
  2. Puts a stop to electrical fires
  3. Saves electrical devices from damage

 

If you haven’t yet heard of ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets from some other electrical company in the Philippines, friends, family, or acquaintances, then you’re in luck because we are going to tell you about it in this article!

GFCI outlets are protective devices that help prevent a number of electricity-related incidents. Unlike standard receptacles or regular outlets that simply allow electricity to flow from your supply to whatever device is plugged in, GFCI outlets are fitted with special features. It has the ability to constantly and continuously track the flow of electrical current in a circuit.

Once it senses any real-time fluctuations and changes that are out of the ordinary, it makes changes accordingly. If need be, it can and will cut off the flow of electricity in the circuit. For example, when you drop your plugged-in hair dryer into a water-filled sink by accident, the GFCI outlet will detect the interruption and immediately cut the power supply, avoiding any injuries and incidents.

Installation of GFCI outlets is included in the Philippine Electric Code (PEC) but not a lot of Filipinos are complying perhaps due to lack of knowledge regarding the product and its benefits, so we aim to change that today. Listed below are the three safety benefits that you can get when you install GFCI outlets in your home:

Prevents Electrical Shocks

Prevents Electrical Shocks

No matter how strategically placed your outlets are or well-maintained your appliances and devices are, the risk of electrical shocks and electrocutions is always there. The danger is even bigger if you have kids or pets at home who are more prone to such incidents. Slight contact with live wires and metallic surfaces may cause severely damaging shocks.

The only way to rid of this ever-present problem is to replace your old outlets with GFCI outlets. As said previously, these outlets have the ability to detect electricity flow and cut it off in case of fluctuations and abnormalities due to loose wires or any other defects.

Electrical Fire

Puts A Stop to Electrical Fires

In addition to sensing changes in the electrical current, GFCI outlets can also detect ground faults. As the name suggests, ground faults happen when the electrical current, on its way to its source or destination, travels through the ground and not using its intended path. These are one of the most common causes of electrical fires along with other types of electricity leakage and can be difficult to detect using normal means.

Although there are electrical fuses that provide protection against electrical fires, they aren’t fully fool-proof. Adding GFCI outlets into the equation can practically reduce the occurrence of electrical fires to zero and save you and your loved ones from harm.

Broken Outlet

Saves Electrical Devices from Damage

Aside from electricity leaking into the ground, it can also leak into your appliances and cause irreparable damage without your knowledge. Electrical leaks are hard to avoid and are bound to happen over time because they are caused by the deterioration of insulation. You can easily detect leakage if the appliance’s body is made of metal. In that case, you will experience an electrical shock every time you touch it – not an ideal way of detecting a leak, but it’s the only one.

If, on the other hand, the device or appliance is made from some other material, there is no way to know of the leak and excessive amounts of electricity will continue to flow into your equipment, causing damage. This is actually one of the most common reasons for device and appliance failure and is very hard to prevent, at least without a GFCI.

With a GFCI outlet installed, you won’t have to worry about electrical leakage. Additionally, since no damage is done to your devices and appliances, you can expect them to have a longer life expectancy.

Key Takeaway

Not a lot of people know about ground fault circuit interrupter (GCFI) outlets, which is a shame because they offer so many benefits that any local electrical company in the Philippines would advocate for.

They can prevent electricity-related accidents from happening and not only in the home. The benefits that a GFCI outlet offers extend beyond the household and applies to establishments and corporations. In fact, these large infrastructures may benefit most from this type of outlets as they don’t have control over each person who plugs in their devices. So, if you’re thinking of rewiring an existing establishment or building a new one, consider putting in GFCI outlets.

Sure, they may cost a little more than regular outlets but not in exchange for nothing. You are basically protecting people from common hazards that you would otherwise face on a daily basis. On top of this, it also allows your appliances and devices to live longer lives. Fewer repairs and replacements can mean more money saved, so, technically, GFCI outlets also allow you to keep your money in the bank.

How can you avoid electrical hazards during the rainy season?

  1. Have your electrical fittings checked prior to the rainy season
  2. Clean and upgrade your appliances.
  3. Avoid doing electrical chores.
  4. Ensure your home is grounded.

 

There’re a lot of reasons to love the rainy season – gone are the heatwaves that cause inconveniences and casualties along with the need to keep your air conditioners running 24/7 and your unending desire to go to the beach to cool off. While people are taking comfort in the natural and cold breeze that the monsoon brings, somewhere in the Philippines, an electrical company is set and dedicated to devising a safety plan for the masses.

Companies and branches of the government concerned with health and safety are responsible for informing people of the dangers that come with the rainy season. Electrical companies, in particular, disseminate information regarding electrical hazards in order to keep their client base, as well as other people, safe.

Although accidents brought about by the combination of electricity and the monsoon are few and select, they still happen and they can be fatal. For you to be able to avoid these electrical hazards that occur during the rainy season, it is best that you follow the different ways we’ve listed below:

Have Electrical Fittings Checked

Have Your Electrical Fittings Checked Prior to the Rainy Season

Here’s an important safety precaution that is guaranteed to lessen your run-ins with electrical hazards – have your electrical fitting inspected by a professional. We’re all well aware that, in the Philippines, the rainy season starts sometime around June. Before that is several months of nothing but sunshine and scorching heat, which means there’s ample time to prepare our homes for the onset of heavy rainfall and floods.

During the dry season, it is recommended that you have your home’s electrical fittings checked and repaired (if needed) in order to decrease the chances of electrical shocks and other electrical hazards. A task of this caliber should be done by professionals like an expert from an electrical company in the Philippines.

Clean and Upgrade Appliances

Clean and Upgrade Your Appliances

On top of having your electrical fittings and systems inspected and repaired, we also suggest that you clean and upgrade your appliances especially the ones that you can’t do without during the rainy season. Appliances such as electric fans, refrigerators, and televisions are some great examples to consider in this aspect.

Heavy and constant rains are reasons for high humidity, dampness, and moisture, which, for the most part, are beneficial for everyone and everything except your electrical appliances. These things allow for the growth of fungus and mold – two of the things that could cause damage and increase the probability of electrical hazards such as electrocution. The only way to prevent this from happening is to clean your appliances constantly with a dry, clean cloth.

Aside from cleaning your appliances, inspect their parts for your safety. Make sure that the wires, plugs, and switches are in good, working condition. If not, consider having them repaired or replaced.

Avoid Doing Electrical Chores

Avoid Doing Electrical Chores

It should go without saying that electrical chores, especially outdoor ones, should be put off until the skies clear up. Unless you are a trained engineer, you should stay indoors and away from potentially dangerous electrical systems during a heavy rainfall.

As said before, the season causes moisture, dampness, and humidity and these could interfere with your work. Not to mention that fiddling with electrical systems that are drenched in rainwater is extremely hazardous.

While indoor electrical chores are less dangerous, they should still be performed with extreme caution, so make sure to take safety precautions before doing them. Additionally, avoid touching any electrical part with wet or damp hands as the slightest wetness could cause danger.

Make Sure Your Home is Grounded

Ensure Your Home Is Grounded

When people say they got grounded, it often means that they experienced a slight and non-fatal electric shock from touching a certain electrical part. However, what we mean when we say to get your home grounded is to connect the metallic parts from your appliances, types of machinery, and devices to an earth plate or electrode found underground.

Ensuring that your home is properly grounded lowers the chances of electrocution from accidentally touching an exposed wire, plugging in things or even switching them on and off. The practice may be foreign to you, so try asking an expert for help. Professional electricians should help with earthing or grounding your home and other tasks.

One such item that can definitely help ensure that your home is properly grounded is Meiji’s very own GFCI outlet: built to ensure that your home is grounded without any risk of injury or any life-threatening scenarios, especially during the rainy season!

Key Takeaway

It is important to remember that the rainy season doesn’t just bring cold winds and comforting rain showers but also additional hazards that could cause severe damage to our homes and to ourselves. The danger of handling electrical parts and appliances doubles when heavy rains start to fall, so it is imperative that you tread cautiously and wisely.

Aside from being aware of the risks, you should learn of ways to avoid them in order to guarantee your safety. There are a lot of precautions that are pretty common sense and we’ve avoided those. Instead, what we have here are ways that many people may not know of but are equally crucial nonetheless.

Once you’ve followed the things listed above, you’ll become less prone to electrical hazards and more alert to handle any consequences should accidents happen!

Holiday Inn Express Newport City is a part of Resorts World Manila, the Philippines’ first integrated resort, with world-class thrills ranging from dining, shopping, gaming, cinemas, and live entertainment. Resorts World is well-known when it comes to their high-class hotels, entertainment and gaming. They have four lodging brands in the country- the luxury all-suite Maxims Hotel, five-star Marriott Hotel Manila, Holiday Inn Express and Belmont Hotel Manila. Resorts World is a joint venture with Megaworld; the largest residential developer in the country.

 

Holiday Inn Express recently purchased MGF-250 for all their rooms from Meiji Electric; the leading supplier of the best Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter in the Philippines. Their luxury all-suite Maxims Hotel and five-star Marriott Hotel Manila have also purchased GFCI: MGF-250. Resorts World Manila trusts only Meiji Electric in protecting their clients, guests and employees in line with electrical safety.

 

The best-selling GFCI MGF-250 comes with a New SELF-TEST Feature.  

 

So, what is a Self-Test GFCI Receptacle?

It is a receptacle that regularly tests the ground fault circuit interrupter function by itself, and then cuts off the power to that receptacle when the ground fault circuit interrupter function fails. The UL (Underwriters Laboratories) made it a requirement that all suppliers of GFCI should make them self-testing, effective  June 2015 in order for them to be UL listed, the revision requires periodic automatic monitoring/self-testing of the GFCI’s ability to respond to a ground fault.  According to the Standard, if the device detects a problem during auto-testing, the GFCI must either deny power to the outlet or provide a visual and/or audible indication. This is a pretty cool idea because most people don’t test their regular GFCIs often, or not at all. When a regular GFCI receptacle isn’t tested by the consumer for the ground fault circuit interrupter function, it may not be doing its job correctly, and could cause electrical shock. In short, with this Self-Test feature you don’t need to test your GFCI every month.

 

MGF250

A combination of an International and a Universal Outlet

The MGF250 has a combination of an International and a Universal Outlet unlike other traditional GFCI’s, which are usually  Duplex Parallel Flat Pin convenience outlets ( C.O.’s) with Ground. The MGF250 works on any plug without any need for bulky adaptors. The MGF250 is considered one of the best in the market since it is classified as Class A in accordance with UL943. This is because all four types of Meiji Electric’s GFCI’s have a maximum 6mA sensitivity rating, unlike other GFCIs being sold in the markets which only have 15mA rating or even higher, making those other brands very dangerous for human lives  when used inappropriately.

Important in both homes and business establishments

GFCI’s are very important in both homes and business establishments, as it monitors an electrical circuit and detects even the slightest flow of electricity to a grounded item. A GFCI immediately shuts off the flow of electricity, thus protecting people from electrocution. It is particularly essential to install in areas where people could come in contact with exposed or faulty grounded items inside bathrooms and kitchens.

Ever wondered why some plugs have 2 prongs while others have 3? Well, it is all about safety!  Electricity must flow in an uninterrupted circuit. Electrocutions often occur in homes due to defective products, such as appliances, power tools, and improper wiring. Children are particularly susceptible to electrocution not only because of their never ending curiosity but also because they can sense an electrical current as low as 0.006A (6mA). Faulty installations or repairs can also result in electrocution and are a primary cause of electrical accidents at home.

Take a look at your home outlets for instance, the right smaller slot is for the HOT wire, this is where electricity comes from; the left wider slot is for the neutral wire, this wire completes the circuit and feeds the electricity back into the system.

Implement this idea into a larger power distribution system and you’ve created a huge problem. If excess voltage is applied to the circuit, like a lightning for example, all the excess energy must travel through your electrical network, potentially exploding everything connected to it. To prevent this, a third ground wire is connected straight to your breaker enclosure and is driven straight to the earth. Now when a lightning strikes into your system, the excess energy is directed into the land instead, but we have now created another problem. Before all of this, the only way to be shocked is when you touched both the neutral and hot wires, in that case your body would close the electrical circuit and the voltage would travel through you, from one wire to the other. Now, because of grounding, half of the electrical system is always indirectly connected to you, through your feet. Meaning you only need to touch a single wire or a metal object electrified by one to become an unfortunate circuit. This is why some appliances have the third prong. It is a safety feature for devices with metal cases. It protects the items from wear and tear, aging and faulty manufacturing. A hot wire from within the appliance could come loose and make contact with the metallic case, without the 3rd prong, you could be lethally shocked when touching it. Appliances with this third prong have a wire that connects directly from the metallic case and back to the outlet. Voltage along this path would trip the breaker and cut off the electricity that could potentially kill you.

Meiji Items with Grounding

 

Electrical Safety with Meiji Products

Prevent serious injury or an accident from happening in your home by using Meiji GFCI’s, AVRS (Automatic Voltage Regulator), UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply), Wiring Devices, Extension Sets, and Timers which all have grounding or 3rd prongs.  The whole family of Meiji Electric’s GFCI’s MGU252MGF250GF250 and LG20 are classified as Class A in accordance with UL943. This is because all Meiji Electric GFCI’s have a 6mA sensitivity rating, unlike other GFCIs being sold in the markets which only have 15mA rating or even higher. UL Standard indicates the `let go factor’ of women and children should not be more than 6mA sensitivity rating because anything above this range is where `freezing currents’ start and it may not be possible to `let go.’ The Meiji GFCI is different from conventional receptacles, because in the event of a ground fault, it automatically trips, and stops the flow of electricity to your body, thus preventing serious injury. Meiji GFCI’s will work even without a grounded wire, even if a utility box isn’t grounded, installing a GFCI in it will still protect you (and your tools and appliances) from ground faults. The Electrical Code requires installing a GFCI for all wet areas, this is necessary to avoid ground fault which happens when electricity passes through our wet body before it reaches the ground.

 

 

UB-252

 

 

Our newest addition is the MGU252, the only square GFCI with a combination of 1 international outlet and 2 USB outlets. It is designed for ease of use with all USB-dependent gadgets and devices while protecting you in wet prone areas. For your convenience, we will be giving a FREE custom-made 3’’x 3’’ utility box UB-252 so you don’t need to worry on where to get one.

Electronic devices have become a necessity across almost all generations now, with a majority now owning cell phones, laptops, tablets, smart watches etc. Millennials are leading the way, using electronic devices for a variety of functions, including internet, email, music, games, video and a whole lot of things you could only imagine before. As more and more people use and depend on their electronic devices, Meiji Electric designed the Meiji MGU252, the only Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) that has one international outlet and 2 USB outlets. Aside from the international outlet that accommodates any plug, it allows users to charge 2 separate USB powered electronic devices directly from the wall and eliminates the need of bulky adaptors while giving you the protection from ground fault.

What is ground fault?

Not everyone really understand what this means. Basically, a ground fault is an electrical path between a power source and a grounded surface. Almost all electrical devices and appliances are “grounded” to ensure they can be safely operated by consumers, but devices can still lose their grounding and redirect electrical currents to the nearest channel that provides a path to the ground, which is your body. This can especially occur in wet areas like toilets, bathrooms and laundry areas, wherein your wet hands or body becomes a conductor of electricity. This is why it is important to install the Meiji Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI). The GFCI’s function is to constantly monitor the power current flowing through a circuit, and the moment the GFCI detects a current imbalance, it shuts off the power to that outlet thus preventing serious injury.

 

Ongoing advancements in technology

Meiji Electric being known for providing innovative items, also improves their line of electrical items to ensure convenience and protection in homes and commercial establishments. The Meiji MGU252 not only protects you and your family, it also follows UL standards giving you confidence and assurance of its reliability and durability.

The MGU252 is easy to install and it comes with a FREE custom-made 3’’x 3’’ utility box. Its modern design blends with interior decor, making it suitable for home, office, hotels, meeting rooms, restaurants, airport lounges and more.

If your GFCI gets tripped, you can just press the reset button to restore power to the circuit. It is advisable to test the GFCI monthly to check if it is functioning accurately. It is also recommended that GFCIs be installed in areas where appliances and power tools are used in close proximity to water. They are most often found in kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms, or even out-of-doors or in the garage where electric power tools might be used.
