You write in you post #30 "Those are not GFCIs. Here those would be GFP at best. GFCIs must have a trip level between 4 to 6 MA".
I asked for clarification on the position # 36, I will be very interested in your answer, maybe you have not seen my post?
I ask you again if you wish.
Indeed, here, when we taking the first screwdriver in hand, we bathed in the differential devices placed at the head of the circuits... It's everywhere and in all forms (instant, delayed, adjustable, etc ...)...
(but we have not electronic differential devices, and not differential 5 or 6 m.Amp).
Can you tell me what is the difference between a differential device, a GFP and a GFCI, please?
I am very curious and I'd like you to teach me something by answering my question I will be very happy.
I thank you in advance,
In the US, GFCI specifically means a device designed for the protection of people. It has a non-adjustable trip setting of 4-6 mA.
GFP is for the protection of equipment the settings vary and are often adjustable.
Now both those devices operate in much the same way but they are not interchangeable.
But why some here are calling AFCIs 'glorified GFCIs' I have no idea. Some AFCI have ground fault detection but in others that has been eliminated.
Like many others I think the AFCI rules should be removed but at the same time I am not ready to join the tin foil hat crowd so strongly represented in this thread.
