It’s mainly applied where GFCI protection is required. GFCI stands for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter which cuts off electric power in circuit one sit detects current flowing in the wrong direction or unintended path. It also detects power leaks. GFCIs are often required to be installed in 2 prong receptacles, bathrooms and kitchens. Generally, these are places where water may cause a short circuits. Therefore this appliance can be used in construction sites, kitchens, garages, bathrooms and workshops.
