In Argentina we call it "disyuntor diferencial". It may be different in other countries.

Just in case you haven't heard it already...

Welcome to the forum, Lauren! grin

I have worked as an electrician in the past and have heard this phrase used: "interruptor accionado por corriente de pérdida a tierra". However there may be another term that I'm not aware of. I'll ask around and if I learn something more I'll let you know!

I hope that helps. smile

I found "conectar a tierra" in this dictionary for the term "ground".I googled electrical terms in Spanish and came up with some links that did not cover this term.All I could do would be to give you a literal translation that may or may not be correct.
