Why RCD testing services in Hamilton are important
It is only with regular professional RCD testing services in Hamilton that you, your employees and your overall workplace can be truly safe from electric shock. The other thing to remember is that these specialised testing services help ensure your home and work premises are protected against faulty electrical equipment causing a fire. It is such faulty equipment that are found to be the cause of many fires throughout New Zealand.
This might all sound simple but you could be wondering what RCDs are? What are commonly called safety switches are referred to in the industry as Residual current devices (RCDs). These are small but critically important electrical devices that are installed in your switchboard by a qualified electrician.
If you haven’t had an RCD installed at your place, then that’s the first thing you should do.
How do RCDs work?
These special devices detect electrical faults and if one is detected, they instantly trip and cut the power off. It’s an essential way to prevent both electrical shocks and circuits from overheating and catching fire. It’s easy to see how vital they are as safety measure and a proven lifesaving measure.
There is something else that you need to remember because, as with any other type of electrical equipment, RCDs can develop faults of their own. This is why testing RCDs is so important.
This specialised testing needs to be performed by a fully trained professional.

If RCD’s aren’t functioning properly they’re not just unworkable, they’re actually dangerous. You are relying on them to perform. A faulty RCD means you, your staff and your premises are unprotected.

Fully functional RCDs will disconnect or trip in less than 25 milliseconds. One second is the equivalent of 1000 milliseconds, so 25 milliseconds is truly lightning speed. That’s why they need to use professional RCD trip time tester services.
