Abstract : The patent describes an underwater electrical power-leakage detector comprising a metallic probe for sensing electrical currents. A resistor converts the current from the probe into a voltage which drives a positive and a negative voltage detector. The output of the positive and negative detectors drives power trip relay or an indicator device. The electrical power-leakage detector is housed in a water-tight case.
