GFCI 20Amp Receptacle - Tamper Resistant

UL943 STANDARD IMPROVEMENTS:
Auto-Monitoring or Self-Test Function - This Function allows for periodic, automatic testing of the ability of the GFCI to respond to a ground fault. If the Self-Test Function detects a problem, the GFCI must deny power or provide visual and/or audible indication.
Reverse Line-Load Misfire Function - Repeated - If the line cable is wired to the load terminals of a receptacle GFCI, power to the receptacle face will be denied. This requirement applies to the initial installation and any subsequent re-installation.
