Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets are very important when the electrical outlets used are positioned close to wet areas. In other words, GFCI outlets are usually installed in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry areas, outdoors, etc, although it may also be generally used on all outlets for safety. Apart from being an effective precautionary measure in your home, the installation of GFCI outlets is actually required by law. According to the Philippine Electric Code (PEC), Article 2.15 Feeders, all homes must be equipped with GFCI protection for personnel and equipment. One reason for this is that many people get electric shocks in their homes every year.
Meiji Electric leads the market on GFCI outlets not just from the google search box but also from the conveniences experienced by our customers. Meiji GFCI Outlet, Cat. No. MGF250, is the most efficient and effective GFCI outlet for your home and workplace. With its versatility and high-quality performance, great advantages are expected.
The most known advantage of Meiji GFCI Outlet is that it prevents shocks and electrocutions. Meiji GFCI Outlet has a built-in sensor that monitors the inflow and outflow of electricity from an appliance. For example, if a live wire inside your equipment is in contact with the metallic surface of the equipment, then, you will receive a shock if you touch this equipment. However, if the equipment is plugged into a Meiji GFCI Outlet, then the device will notice the change in electrical flow occurring as result of the loose wire, and it will quickly shut down the power. Meiji GFCI outlet can detect current imbalance as low as 0.006 amperes (6 milliamperes) and stops the flow of electricity immediately. Thus, Meiji GFCI Outlets are needed for shock prevention. Although they are slightly more expensive than regular power outlets, this massive advantage makes them well worth the cost.
Sometimes, over a period of time, equipment insulation breaks down. A certain amount of electric current begins to leak into household appliances or other electronic items. If the outer body of the equipment is not made of metal, you may not get a shock, but this constant leakage of current will damage the equipment. In fact, this leakage of electricity is one of the most common reasons why computer hard disk drives fail. With a GFCI outlet, you do not need to worry about this happening. This is because the instant the GFCI circuit detects a leak, it will shut down the circuit. This can help prevent expensive equipment and appliances from getting damaged due to electrical leaks.
MGF250 has a power rating of 20 amperes and 250 volts with a unique combination of international and universal outlets which accepts any type of plug. It also has a safety test button to ensure that the ground fault detection feature accurately functions. On top of that, Meiji GFCI Outlets are made from polycarbonate glossy white finish that is fire retardant and brings style to your home!
