Shock-Block is a leading supplier of specialty high-current ground-fault protection devices that are used in a wide variety of industrial applications to protect workers from electrical shocks. Littelfuse acquired Shock-Block of Dallas, Texas, in 2008.
Shock-Block’s products, sold under the K-Tec brand, include a line of ground-fault relays and industrial ground-fault circuit interrupters.
The acquisition added ground-fault protection relays and industrial ground-fault circuit interrupters to our product line, providing a strong base for the further expansion of our electrical business. It broadened our capabilities by enabling POWR-GARD® to sell products that protect equipment as well as the people who operate them.
