A residual current device (RCD), also known as a safety switch or residual current circuit breaker (RCCN), is an electrical device designed to immediately cut off the supply to electricity when an earth fault is detected.
RCDs are able to detect when electricity is flowing down a path it shouldn’t be, such as to earth or through a person, and can automatically and immediately cut off the electrical supply, minimising harm and preventing electrocution caused by faults and fires.
What are the Benefits of a Residual Current Device?
RCDs can provide protection from electric shock and electrocution, reducing danger. As well as being affordable to purchase and simple for a licensed electrician to install, the devices possess high rates of reliability, ensuring your safety when working with electrical tools or appliances.
