Not only poor quality components can age and wear out quickly, all pieces of equipment can face risks such as shocks, burns and ageing too, over the years. That’s why high sensitivity RCDs are now compulsory to protect :
  • All socket outlets
  • All appliances located in bathrooms

RCDs operate in electrical installations by measuring the intensity difference between live and neutral conductors, thus actually detecting the current flowing through the human body. If this current reaches the 30mA limit, the RCD trips within a few milliseconds, so preventing injury or worse. Users of electrical equipment are protected.

One RCD can protect all sockets and bathroom equipment. The neutral conductor must run through the RCD because it operates by comparing the current in the live conductor with the current in the earth conductor.
