RCD & RCCB
RCD means residual current device and it is a safety component which is usually installed into a fuse box as a breaker. It is also sometimes referred to in the industry as an RCD consumer unit. RCD products are specially designed to protect against damage to your appliance in the event that there is a fault with the power supply or current. An RCD will trip if an issue is detected and will cut the power immediately. RCD products are available in a variety of amp ratings and types to suit any requirements. These products are one of the most important safety devices for electrical projects both in commercial and home environments as they are designed to protect against electrical shocks as a result of earth leakage. RCCB stands for residual current circuit breaker and these products act as the same component, but without offering the protection against overload.
