What is an RCD on the New Fuse Boards?
An RCD, or residual current device, is a life-saving device which is designed to prevent you from getting
a fatal electric shock if you touch something live, such as a bare wire.
RCD Fuse Board
It can also provide some protection against electrical fires.
RCDs offer a level of personal protection that ordinary fuses and circuit-breakers cannot provide on old fuse boards.
What does an RCD do?
An RCD is a sensitive safety device that switches off electricity automatically on you fuse board if there is a fault
An RCD is designed to protect against the risks of electrocution and fire caused by earth faults and cuts
the power on the fuse board.
appliance overheats causing electric current to flow to earth.
How does it work?
An RCD constantly monitors the electric current flowing through one or more circuits it is used to protect on your fuse board
If it detects electricity flowing down an unintended path, such as through a person who has touched a live part, the RCD will switch the circuit on the fuse board off very quickly, significantly reducing the risk of death or serious injury.
An RCD Protected Consumer unit
Can provide protection to individual or groups of circuits.
A fixed RCD provides the highest level of protection as it protects all the wiring and the sockets on a circuit and any connected appliances.
Remember – Although RCD protection reduces the risk of death or injury from electric shock it does not reduce the need to be careful.
Have your wiring checked at least once every 10 year to ensure the safety of you, your family and your home.
If you find a fault with your wiring, or an appliance, stop using it immediately and contact a registered electrician. Save our contact details to your phone:
