Why RCD testing services in Auckland are important

With regular professional RCD testing services in Auckland, you, your staff or your family are kept as safe as possible from electric shock. Along with that, your home and work premises are protected against fire which can be caused by faulty equipment.

What are RCDs? Residual currency devices (RCDs) are the industry term for what are known as safety switches. They’re small electrical devices that a qualified electrician installs in your switchboard. If none have been installed at your premises, then that’s the first thing you need to do.

RCDs are able to detect electrical faults and once detected, instantly trip and cut the power off. They prevent electrical shocks and circuits from overheating and catching fire. You can see just how vital they are as safety measure and even a lifesaving one.

It’s important to remember is that RCDs can also develop faults like any other type of electrical equipment. This is why the testing of RCDs is critical.

This specialised testing is only a job for a fully trained professional.
