RCD testing is a safety measure that’s required by law in Australia. Residual Current Devices (RCDs) are safety devices installed to prevent electrocution. Also sometimes referred to as safety switches, in the event of an electrical fault, they’ll immediately shut off all supply of electricity. Often saving individuals from severe consequences, these innovative devices are tripped whenever they detect harmful levels of electricity leaking to earth — meaning there might be a defect in the circuit or the appliance connected to it. Without a functional RCD in your workplace, you not only risk legal penalties but are gambling with the safety of you and your employees.
Your RCD is only of use to you if it’s working correctly. These devices must be checked on a regular basis to ensure this. At Euphoric Utopia, we offer safe and affordable RCD testing services for businesses and individuals. This process involves using specialised equipment to simulate an electrical defect, and intentionally tripping the switch. The equipment will then measure the response time to within 1/1,000th of a second. Once compared to the national maximum allowed trip time, your RCD can be deemed satisfactory or unsatisfactory.
