GFCI Tester
 
4 Attachment(s)
This is my design for a GFCI Tester to check the current leakage margin to help analyze nuisance trips.

The box is a Carlon Handy Box

S1 is a C&K miniature Toggle model E107 which is center OFF and momentary in the spring loaded up or down position.

DS1 is a green neon which pulls 1.3 mA. Any color neon can be used but there is variance among colors and models. I tuned my Neon circuit with a bleeder resistor to pull a measured 2.01mA @ 119.5V.
