RCD Safety Switch Testing

What is the purpose of an RCD?

An RCD (residual current device) is the industry term for a safety switch. An RCD’s main purpose is to prevent severe electrical shocks from occurring. An RCD acts as a life-saving device; it detects and halts the power in an electrical socket preventing dangerous electric currents and fatal electric shocks. RCD’s are usually located on a switchboard but can be used portably. Every home and workplace should enlist in regular RCD safety switch testing to ensure they are working correctly.

The importance of RCD’s

If your appliance is faulty and your RCD does not trip within the required time, fatal and harmful injuries such as electric shock can occur. Regular RCD safety switch testing can help you avoid dangerous occurrences in your home and workplace.
