Power - Strip with Ground-Fault-Interrupter (GFI / RCD)

Faulty devices like heaters, pumps oder cables may pose serious threats to humans and fishes by introducing electricity into aquarium water. Common automatic circuit breakers will not trigger since the current flow may be far to low. Troptronic powerstrips with integrated ground-fault-interrupter prevent hazardous situations by immediatly interrupting the devices connected to the powerstrip in case of an error.

Troptronic GFI-powerstrips come with an attached groundsensor with enables the ground-fault-interrupter to switch off in 30 Millseconds if the erroneous current exceeds 10 milli amps.
