RCD Testing Services in Brisbane, Qld

ENC Solutions Today can test both portable and fixed RCDs, which are also known as ELCBs and the Safety Switch.
The RCD Trip Time is a measurement of how long it takes the RCD to respond when a dangerous situation occurs. The RCD Test Instrument simulates a fault, and records the operating time of the RCD in milliseconds (ms). This test therefore demonstrates how quickly the RCD will respond to a dangerous situation. RCDs generally respond in under 30ms, however up to 40ms is acceptable under certain circumstances.
During the RCD Ramp Current Measurement, the RCD Test Instrument simulates an earth leakage current (which represents a dangerous fault), however this time, the instrument starts the leakage current gradually, and “ramps” the current up over say 15 seconds. The test instrument then records the earth leakage current in milliamperes (mA) at which the RCD trips. This test demonstrates how sensitive the RCD is in detecting a dangerous situation. Generally, RCDs must respond at 30mA or less, although some special RCDs are set to respond at either 10mA or 100mA

Intervals for testing specified electrical equipment

The type of work being performed determines how often specified electrical equipment is tested. Specified electrical equipment is defined by section 97 of the Electrical Safety Regulation 2013 as electrical equipment with a current rating of not more than 20 amps*. Specified electrical equipment also includes cord extension sets and electrical portable outlet devices (EPODs). *For service or office work, specified equipment is limited to equipment that is moved during its normal use for the purpose of its use.

The table below outlines the maximum interval between tests.

Note: there are specific requirements on a hire company for inspecting, tagging and testing hire equipment.

Intervals for testing Type 1 and Type 2 safety switches
