    Okay but they are still calling it an equipment gfi. I have never heard it called that.. the nec does not use that term either.
    They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
    I can't help it if I'm lucky

    But, how do we distinguish that from 30mA or 100mA ground-fault interruption used for equipment protection. Right or not, Square D and Siemens refer to them as GFI.

    But, has anyone else installed them?
    Square D calls the 30mA verion "EPD" and the 100mA version "EPE".

    They are not cheap.

    Ok, maybe it was Japan since they are all Japanese manufactured. Just going from rusty memory here.

    Why would we require a GFI on split system indoor units?
