MELVILLE, N.Y. July 19, 2011
The Slim GFCI with Guide Light features a pair of LED lights that automatically respond to ambient light, getting brighter when light levels in a room are low. As with the entire SmartlockPro Slim series, the new device features a slimmer profile than traditional GFCI designs. The overall volume of Leviton’s slim GFCIs are as much as 25 percent less than traditional GFCIs. The slim design addresses one of the greatest challenges in GFCI installation — lack of room to maneuver and install the GFCI in the electrical box.
The device’s unique lens design with edge-mounted LEDs improves light dispersion, and since energy-efficient LEDs are used, there are no bulbs to replace. Adding a built-in light to the GFCI frees outlet space by providing enough light to guide the way so an alternative light source is not necessary.
The new addition to Leviton’s SmartlockPro Slim line meets and exceeds Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and National Electrical Code® (NEC) requirements, including the NEC requirement for tamper-resistance. The SmartlockPro Slim GFCI with Guide Light features Leviton’s patented SmartlockPro Reset Lockout Technology, which prevents the resetting of the device if the GFCI cannot respond to a ground fault. Additionally, the device is equipped with a dual purpose LED indicator that helps signal correct or incorrect wiring during installation, and during typical use, will function as a confirmation that protected power is available.
The SmartlockPro Slim Duplex GFCI with Guide Light is now available through Leviton’s network of retail and electrical distribution locations.
