Auto Reset (Automatic Rest) GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) plug heads are used in applications such as home appliances and industrial equipment, cleaners, spas, vending machines, ticketing kiosks, change machines, and more. As the name implies, an Automatic Reset GFCI will automatically reset after being tripped once the current flowing back into the device matches the current flowing out of the device (when normal operation of the circuit has resumed). This is useful in applications where the equipment is not in use by a human, and that prolonged downtime to the equipment is potentially hazardous. User Attachable Plug Heads allow you to add GFCI protection to an existing cord by cutting off the existing plug (male) and wiring on the GFCI. Standard amperages are 8AMP, 10AMP, 13AMP and 15AMP. Standard color is black. Standard plugs are NEMA 1-15P and NEMA 5-15P.
Do NOT use with power tools(saws, drills, meat cutters, mixers, or similar) because of the automatic reset function. It should be used in applications that involve refrigerators/freezers or similar.
