What is the difference between a receptacle and an outlet?

Though often used interchangeably, these outlets and receptacles do offer differences between the two. A receptacle refers to the slots where the plug is inserted. An outlet refers to the box where the slots sit. In other words, the receptacle holds the plug, while the outlet provides the current. This means multiple receptacles can fit in a single outlet. The term duplex receptacle, for example, refers to an outlet that holds two receptacles.

What is a GFCI outlet?

A GFCI, or ground fault circuit interrupter, prevents electrical shocks caused by electrical faults. The outlet includes an automatic testing feature that continuously monitors for electrical faults. If it detects a fault, it automatically shuts off power. The test and reset buttons ensure that the outlet works properly and allows you to reset it if it shuts off. The National Electrical Code (NEC) requires GFCI outlets in wet or damp locations, such as kitchens and bathrooms. USI Electric self-test tamper resistant outlets include an End of Life indicator that provides a notification when the GFCI no longer delivers power.

What types of receptacles and outlets are available?

USI Electric products come in different shades, such as white, ivory, and almond, and amp options including 15 and 20 amp. A tamper resistant receptacle duplex outlet includes an outlet safety option by including an internal cover that only opens when someone inserts a plug. This tamper-resistant construction will restrict access from single prong objects such as keys, nails, and other objects. Large test and reset buttons on the GFCI outlets ensure maximum safety.
