RCD Testing

Professional RCD electrical testing service

An RCD or Residual Current Device is a safety device which disconnects a circuit when it detects an imbalance of the electric current. RCD's are very sensitive and will activate within 10 to 50 milliseconds of current leakage. This ceases the flow of electricity through a person's, body reducing the risk of serious injury or even death. RCD's can also help prevent fire due to appliance and wiring faults.
