How RCDs Work and The Importance of RCD Testing in Perth

RCDs work by monitoring the current flowing in the electrical circuit and comparing the current in the live and neutral wires. If there is an imbalance, it indicates that some of the current is flowing through an alternative path, such as through a person’s body. The RCD will then trip and cut off the power supply to prevent the current from flowing and causing harm.

RCD electrical testing ensures that RCDs are functioning effectively to provide adequate protection against potential electrical hazards. By scheduling regular RCD testing, you can reap the following benefits:

Failure to conduct RCD testing can increase the risk of electrical hazards and accidents, resulting in property damage and potential harm to your family, employees, or customers. Non-compliance with regulatory requirements can also result in penalties, fines, and legal consequences.

At Hiscocks Electrical, our experienced electricians provide thorough residential and commercial RCD testing in Perth to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and minimise the risks and costs associated with electrical accidents and malfunctions.

Ensuring Optimal Electrical Safety Through Our Range of RCD Tests

Our comprehensive RCD testing services include a range of tests to ensure the proper functionality and optimal electrical safety of your RCDs. Our suite of RCD tests includes:

  • Trip time testing: to measure how long it takes for the RCD to trip after a fault current is detected.
  • Current rating testing: to check that the RCD can handle the maximum current it is designed for.
  • Insulation resistance testing: to measure the resistance of the insulation around the electrical circuit and ensure proper functionality.
  • RCD ramp testing: to gradually increase the current and determine the RCD’s tripping point.
  • Push-button testing: to simulate a fault current and verify that the RCD will trip and cut off the power supply.
  • Portable RCD testing: to check the functionality of RCDs in temporary electrical installations, such as construction sites.

It’s not recommended to test your own RCDs, as specialised equipment is required to simulate a fault current and properly test the RCD’s functionality. Only a qualified electrician should perform RCD testing.
If your RCD fails the test, the electrician may recommend repairs or replacement of the faulty RCD. They may also conduct further testing to identify any underlying issues with your electrical system.
The duration of RCD testing can vary depending on the number of RCDs that need to be tested and the complexity of the electrical system. However, most RCD testing can be completed within a few hours.
Yes, RCD testing can be done on older electrical systems. However, the electrician may recommend additional checks or repairs if the electrical system is outdated or not up to current safety standards.
