Hubbell Expands Exclusive Features of Extra Heavy-Duty Industrial Ground Fault Receptacle
Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems is pleased to announce its new Extra Heavy-Duty Industrial Ground Fault Receptacle. The new receptacle now features a corrosion-resistant design that protects critical components from moisture. Internal and exposed parts are nickel plated, and a selective conformal coated printed circuit board (PCB) is applied to critical components and tracks on the PCB, as well. Terminal and mounting screws are stainless steel.

A new triple-wipe contact design includes a nickel-plated high-performance copper alloy, which features excellent electrical and thermal performance under ambient and high temperatures. This makes the Extra Heavy-Duty Industrial Ground Fault Receptacle ideal for demanding applications such as manufacturing facilities, laboratories, hospitals, garages, mobile power applications, and assembly lines.

New rectangular “clear light pipe” indicators provide a visual representation of the device’s ability to provide people protection: green (power), red (a trip), or flashing red (end of life). Oversized buttons make it quick and easy to test and reset the device, even while wearing work gloves. For enhanced protection, a safety “trap door” cam-action design limits improper access to energized contacts without restricting plug engagement.

“In 2003, Hubbell designed and manufactured the industry’s first self-test GFCI receptacle,” says Glenn Murphy, senior product manager for Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems. “Just like its predecessor, today’s newest version—the Extra Heavy-Duty Industrial Ground Fault Receptacle—exceeds UL 943 GFCI standards with patented self-test diagnostics that continuously monitor GFCI functionality through AUTOGUARD® technology. If a fault is detected, internal software runs an algorithm to confirm prior to initiating an end-of-life state. The device also exceeds the UL 943 noise immunity test, indicating an ability to prevent nuisance tripping.”
