GFI receptacles are designed to be used in wet environments. They work by detecting small differences of current between the hot & neutral which could possibly be a short circuit. The GFI can trip faster than a circuit breaker preventing a hazardous electrical shock. Due to the complexity & demand our DVR motors can have on power, the GFI's detect a difference and trip. Rest assured that our equipment is fully tested and safe. Make sure the power cord has not been damaged, the ground prong is intact and the receptacle is properly wired with a minimum rating of 15 amps. Receptacles can be changed provided that they meet the safety requirements imposed by the environment you use them in.
If a GFI outlet is a requirement for your shop, contact the manufacturer of the following product as a possibility for your DVR machine.
