What is a duplex grounded receptacle?

A duplex receptacle has two devices in a composite assembly on one yoke. It is the receptacle that is what you commonly think of as a receptacle [two places to plug in a lamp...] rather than a single receptacle, which has a place to connect one device. Removing the connecting bar as described in earlier answer merely allows two circuits or separate control of the two devices. original answer: a duplex receptacle is a normal looking receptacle but the little piece of copper bar between the terminal screws on the power side has been broken off and two different circuits feed the two screws- WRONG!


Why can't you change out a switch for a receptacle?

Electrically there is no reason you couldn't if the neutral exists in the switch box. But in a home, a switch is required just inside every door. So other arrangements would have to be made for that. Replacing a switch with a receptacle would mean there is no longer a switch, of course, for the lights. They would either be on all the time or off all the time. If you need a receptacle at this location, consider installing a combination unit with a switch and single receptacle on the same yoke.

What is an electrical isolated ground?

When devices are grounded in most electrical system the grounds are combined without order or separation. The same ground that connects the metal box, the yoke of the electrical device and other devices is the same ground that is used at each outlet. This rarely causes any sort of problem except for sensitive electronics such as hospital equipment, high end computers and high end musical equipment. In an isolated grounded receptacle the ground wire is insulated and comes directly from the panel to the ground connection of the receptacle. This type of grounding should produce less electrical noise on the system.
