I think I already know the answer, but I want to make certain:
With the switch/GFCI combo, can I run one circuit for the switch (controlling an overhead light) and a different circuit on the GFCI (line in and load out to two more receptacles)?
The box I'm working in is a two-gang with two circuits. I need to simplify the profile, so I'm looking to use the combo to accomplish that.
My thought is: connect the two blacks from the switch circuit to the leads on the switch side of the combo. The neutral and ground carry through as they were in the original set up.
Run the LINE hot and neutral to the GFCI LINE side and carry the LOAD side out to the next receptacles.
Am I correct?
Yes, you can run a hot from a second circuit to power the switch separately from the GFCI. Just keep in mind that the switched load will not be protected from ground faults, since the switch mechanism is separated from the GFCI circuit.
