    Default New GFCI

    I don't get much new construction, and had not seen this until this week. There is a new type of GFCI that sounds and audible alarm when it is tripped. It really made things nice to find the reset point, especially in this giant house I was inspecting. Wish they were all that way.

    A very handy feature to have for a sump pump or freezer.

    Not sure I understand your post Robert.

    The feature talked about is an audible tone upon the gfis tripping to alert to the trip condition.

    Jim, I will apologise again.
    I try to be in front on receptacles including GFCI outlets.
    I have only run across Audible trip alert technology 2 times and enjoy being on top of technology.

    Here is a link to one manufacturer, Leviton.

    Several PDF's to download.

    I have been very ill as of late. I use humor to offset my state of being.
    Please excuse me, members.
    Thanks for the post, Jim.

    The post was a bunch of Vietnamese I think. Jerry reported and Brian swooped in and snatched it out of thread.

    Thanks Brian.
