General Purpose Portable GFCI Bodies & Cords
General purpose portable ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) bodies and cords are electrical devices used with power cords that help protect users from ground faults. They have an integrated circuit breaker that turns off the power when a current overload is detected, helping protect users from electrical burns, shock, or electrocution. They are commonly used in temporary power applications to provide protection where electrical circuits may come in contact with water, such as in garages or outdoors, and a standard GFCI receptacle is not available. Plug-in GFCIs plug directly into a wall outlet and have one or more receptacles that devices plug into. Inline GFCIs are lengths of cord with an outlet plug at one end and one or more receptacles at the other end that devices plug into.
