RCD - Residual Current Device
Also known as a safety switch or an RCCB, these devices protect a user from an ongoing electrical shock by 'opening the circuit' and disconnecting the current.
Generally there are two trip times available.
- 10mA which will trip within 40ms - used in the Medical Industry and in industry to protect workers with pacemakers
- 30mA which will trip within 300ms - standard used in other situations.
We can supply an RCBO as a standard accessory which will integrate with most of our PDUs. (RCBO's have both an RCD and integrated over-current protection.) This would replace the existing circuit breaker in a PDU configuration.
To align with Electrical Safety Victoria (ESV)'s recent ruling we supply the following RCBO integrated into our PDUs,
- NHP: M6RCBDxx30CAN - Data Sheet - (where xx is the current rating: '10' = "10A')
Other options available on request. Click here for a list of ESV approved RCBOs.
