The PowerSafeTM Electrical Outlet provides electrical safety for the consumer and industrial user through the application of internal electronic circuitry and sensors that detect faults and take the appropriate protective action. Unlike a conventional receptacle, if a device is not plugged into the receptacle, there is no power supplied to the female connectors on the face of the receptacle.
The control unit in a PowerSafe Electrical Outlet continuously monitors the receptacle status. When an appliance or tool is plugged in and calls for power, the PowerSafe Electrical Outlet illuminates a green indicator lamp and switches on the AC power. Once the appliance is switched off, the PowerSafe Electrical Outlet interrupts the flow of electricity. Both halves of the receptacle are monitored and controlled independently. If one side is supplying power, and the other side is not energized, the Control Circuit monitors its status independently.
