fault current protection switch


Explanation:
1. Der Fehlerstromschalter (FI-Schalter) dient vorallem dem Personenschutz. Er soll den Stromkreis unterbrechen, wenn der Strom außer dem durch den Schaltplan vorgegebenen Weg noch andere Wege geht. Er soll zum Beispiel ausschalten, wenn eine leitende Verbindung zwischen dem Gehäuse eines Geräts und dem Außenleiter (Phase) besteht, oder wenn eine leitende Verbindung zwischen dem Außenleiter und der Wasserleitung hergestellt wird. Deshalb müssen alle Metallgehäuse von Elektrogeräten mit dem Schutzleiter verbunden werden.
