line isolation monitor
Explanation:
"A line isolation monitor which monitors ground faults on a normally ungrounded AC power line. "

"A Line Isolation Monitor (LIM) monitors the integrity of an isolated power system. Isolation transformers produce non-grounded power sources. All AC wiring and AC operated electrical devices have the potential for direct resisting capacitance, or inductive leakage currents to occur via the casing of most electrical devices, thus there are small leakage currents. The LIM, also known as the ground fault detector, indicates (in milliamperes) the total leakage from the system. "
