Sounds nice…BUT remember something. An OCPD ( Overcurrent Protection Device) protects againsts Short Circuit, Ground fault and Overload. There is a difference between a “ground fault” which a standard breaker protects againsts in its own inverse way…just be clear that GFCI and Ground Fault are different things.

It really should read this way…

unlike standard circuit breakers, which guard against overloads, short circuits and ground faults.

Just in case you wanted to know…!!!
