Key features

Is a high speed shut down circuit that provides maximum operator protection. If the circuit detects excessive leakage to ground it shuts down the high voltage in less than 1 millisecond. SmartGFI is automatically activated if the DUT is not grounded. The operator does not need to make the decision whether to activate the SmartGFI.

The ability of a circuit to detect the short duration current spikes normally in the range of 10 microseconds which have peak amplitudes in the milliamp range. These high frequency spikes normally appear on the peaks of the output wave prior to catastrophic or destructive arc breakdown which result in complete failure of the insulation.
