RCD Installation & Maintenance

RCD Installation & Maintenance | All Hours Electrical 24/7

All Hours Electrical are experienced in checking properties for smoke alarm and RCD compliance in accordance with the relevant codes including installation and testing for correct operation. We have put together a package for our clients to provide scheduled maintenance and testing of smoke alarms and RCDs.

RCD Installation & Maintenance

Overseas research indicates that the primary cause of failure in RCDs is ingress of dust and moisture which can cause the moving components to stick or to operate slower than intended. The research also shows that regular testing, by pushing the “test” button, is effective in improving reliability.

Energy safety recommend that property managers remind their tenants to push the “test” button on RCDs every three months and notify them if the RCD does not operate. While this simple test moves the contacts and aids reliability it does not test the operating time of the RCD.

AS/NZS 3760:2010 recommends an appropriately trained, qualified or experienced person carries out their own push-button test along with an operating/disconnection time test at least once every two years (for residential properties). When tested at its rated sensitivity an RCD must trip within 300 milliseconds (for a 30mA RCD), which is much less than the critical section of the cardiac cycle, therefore significantly reducing the risk of death or injury.
