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.
