RCD Testing

An RCD or Residual Current Device is a safety device which disconnects a circuit when it detects the electrical current is not in balance.  RCD’s are very sensitive and will activate within 10 to 30 milliseconds stopping the flow of electricity. If maintained correctly an RCD can not only help to prevent fire due to appliance or wiring faults, they save lives. Thermal Scanners help clients to ensure their RCD’s are compliant and tested in line with the Australian Standard AS/NZS 3760:2010.

Thermal Scanners is able to carry out all your RCD Testing requirements and upon completion, issues you with a Comprehensive Report and Compliance Certificate.

  • A Push button test is used to test that the RCD is operational.
  • A Trip Time test uses a Plug in RCD test device and measure for “trip time” in accordance with Standards.
