Protection Without Exception (Part 2)


So what does this mean to the end user? If a circuit breaker with GFCI technology reaches end of life and is no longer providing ground fault protection as a result of failure, it may still be reset and continue to provide unprotected power with no indication required to the end user.

Fortunately, standards have been updated to close these loopholes for GFCI circuit breakers. However, manufacturers will have more than three years to comply with the new standards, meaning many circuit breakers currently in operation and on the market will be unable to provide complete ground fault protection.

Thankfully, electrical contractors don’t have to wait that long to provide complete protection against ground faults.
