Dual device GFCI outlet box offers shock protection

Reelcraft’s popular line of industrial grade cord reels now feature a new dual-device Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) duplex box to help further protect against the risk of electric shock. Reelcraft’s portable cord reel with dual-device GFCI receptacles is equivalent to a portable GFCI when in use. The dual-outlet box has a GFCI module containing an open, neutral protection feature that allows the GFCI module to trip if a neutral wire is broken, thus reducing the risk of electrical shock. The Circuit Guard GFCI module is rated for 20 amperes and the receptacle can be ordered as 15 amperes or 20 amperes. The updated design satisfies all UL requirements for GFCI’s standard, UL 943, section 6.7.2.1c, which requires open neutral protection for a portable GFCI.
