The GFCI panel box presented in the MELTRIC catalog as Receptacle/GFCI Combinations, has changed UL status.

Originally classified to meet the UL 943 standard for GFCI protection, a standard change now requires the panel to have a self-checking automatic circuit detection system to remain UL 943 compliant. While the GFCI panel still offers protection from nuisance tripping, it does not include a self-checking option, so it no longer technically meets the UL 943 standard. Because of this change, we can no longer classify the panel as a GFCI product.

The panel box does meet the UL 508A standard as an Industrial Control Panel. Until we find a suitable GFCI panel box replacement, we will continue to use the current box rated to meet UL 508A.

Protection Combinations

MELTRIC DSN Series Switch-Rated receptacles pre-mounted on UL 508A Ground Leakage Protection Panels provide safe electrical connections while the panel detects ground leakage currents in all stages of power conversion equipment. The receptacle/ground leakage protection panel combinations are simple to install and require a minimal amount of connections. Standard configurations are available from 20 A to 100 A and up to 600 VAC.
