This residual current device is the sensible solution for providing protection whilst using any type of electrical power tool. Tested to standards BS1363 and IEC61540, the unit is suitable for use in both domestic and industrial situations with a maximum operating current of 16 amperes and load rating of 3840 watts. Designed to be wired in-line between the appliance and the mains plug with a rated trip current of 30mA and a trip speed of 30ms, the device ensures that both you and your powertool are permanently protected. Featuring a test and reset button, this RCD will provide complete confidence against lethal electrical shocks.
The unit simply fits between the power tool and the electrical socket buffering the electrical supply from the user. If the lawnmower cuts the cable or the drill goes through a cable, the power supply is instantly cut off so that no injury is suffered.
