Type Y8WSY - 20mA, 20A ground fault and overcurrent breaker
The GFCI is a device that combines overcurrent and short circuit protection with current leakage protection.
The purpose of overcurrent protection is to protect equipment, and protection against leakage is intended to protect people against the risk of electric shock.
In Jacket and blanket heaters, every precaution is taken to avoid these risks. But there may be exceptional circumstances that may produce short circuits or leaks.
This can be for example a very hot liquid overflow, the piercing of the cover or a power cord by a sharp metal object, or simply the disconnection of a conductor due to a bad tightening of electrical terminals. We therefore recommend the use of this device, waterproof, at the head of the power line of the jacket or blanket heater.
