Is a GFCI the same as a TVSS receptacle?

No. 'TVSS' stands for Transient Voltage Surge Suppressor. These devices are different from GFCIs (Ground fault Circuit interrupters). GFCIs help in minimizing risks of shock through electrocution or current leaks to ground through a path outside of intended path. TVSS devices are designed to protect electrical devices from voltage spikes caused in the electrical system. To find more about Eaton's offering of GFCI receptacles, please check:
