MilliAMP is an Equipment Leakage Circuit Interrupter (ELCI/GFCI) designed for electrical equipment and shock protection of sewage pumps, water pumps, heating cables and many other electrical appliances. It is a product that can complement every small pump with special attention to submersibles.
Traditionally, ground fault protection is handled by the electrical trade in the form of a receptacle or circuit breaker normally purchased through reputable electrical distributors only. Heat-Line determined that plumbing / mechanical installers could also benefit from ELCI/GFCI protection devices for pumps and pressure systems of all types, and distributors indicated they would appreciate a new product that would complement the pumps they already sell.
With experience from the electrical side, Heat-Line decided there was an opportunity to develop a product that would provide a much higher level of electrical safety to the entire industry. In order to achieve this, Heat-Line developed a device that is easy to install and not specific to any particular electrical panels or equipment. The MilliAMP MA-10 is a safety and equipment protection device that can be used with any 120 volt appliances up to 20 Amps and or 240 volt appliances up to 16 Amps and is fully CSA approved.
MilliAMP is a GFCI/ELCI equipment protection device designed for many applications including, but not limited to:
- Sewage pumps
- Water pumps
- Heating cables
- Submersible pumps
