A ground fault circuit interrupter, called a GFCI or GFI, is an inexpensive electrical switchgear device that can either be installed in your electrical system or built into a power cord to protect you from severe electrical shocks. Electric shocks can cause severe injury or even death. Even exposure to current as low as 100 ma current for only 2 seconds can cause death. … [Read more...] about GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) – Working, Types, Installing and Troubleshooting
