What is the difference between the IEC rated 16201 ID Residual Current Switch and the UL1053 listed 60969 GFP?<br />It seems that they are both IEC61008 and CE Marked. Both are 25 amp, 2 pole, 240 volt, 30 mA.<br />Other than the UL rating, is there any other difference?

Electrical Distribution Equipment

The ID Residual Current Switch has IEC ratings for switching.
The GFP was evaluated by UL only as a ground-fault protection unit and was not tested or certified as a switch.

The GFP is an enhanced version of the ID switch with noise immunity and an environmental protective coating for the electronics which the ID switch doesn`t have.
Since the GFP is required to be protected by a breaker, the user is expected to use the breaker for switching.
