About Receptacles

Receptacles are marked according to its operation including electrical outlets for the residence, commercial and industrial industry. Industrial receptacles are more robust and a better quality than residential, although it comes at a higher cost. When purchasing a receptacle, ensure that it is the correct choice of outlet for the select appliance.

The safe operation of a receptacle requires the correct connection to the line terminals. The conventional receptacle includes a half round hole that receives the ground plug. It is from here that a contact will lead from this hole to the ground circuit of the house, represented by the green wire. This ensures all electrical operations are protected as soon as a light is turned on or appliance plugged into the socket.

Before connecting a receptacle, it is important to determine whether the wires are grounded. In the power off position, ensure that the receptacle has 3 terminal points of different colors. The brass screws are connected to the black wire or hot wires, the silver screws are connected to the neutral wires or white wires and the green screw is connected to the ground wires. Using a wiring diagram can assist in getting your receptacle connected. When looking at the green screw of the receptacle terminal, it should be connected to a metal box or electrical box. If you cannot find this connection, it is important to consult with an electrician to provide the proper grounding for your electrical outlets. When you wish to wire an outlet, connect the black wire to the electrical outlet you want on. This will be found on the top of the outlet.

For safety requirements, the ground fault circuit-interrupter or the GFCI will act quickly should a ground fault occur. It aims to assess the amount of current moving through the circuit conductors.
