What is an RCD Safety Switch?

Residual Current Device safety switches work by breaking the electrical circuit, preventing electric shocks and serious harm. They provide added protection when using electrical devices. The use of RCD safety switches has become compulsory in many parts of Australia.

At Metropolitan Electrical Contractors we offer a wide range of RCD safety switches. We will inspect your home so we can make sure the correct safety switch is chosen and installed for your home.

All you need to know about RCD Safety Switches. Metropolitan Electrical Contractors provides some useful answers to some frequently asked questions below.

A residual current device (RCD) safety switch reacts to any imbalance in your electricity circuit, shutting off your power supply at the switchboard.

It’s triggered in about 0.3 seconds which prevents electrocution. Without a safety switch you would be at risk of serious electric shocks, or even fire, because of faulty wiring or an overloaded system.

What exactly causes an imbalance in a circuit? There are several reasons why your safety switch has tripped, including:

  • Overloaded power outlets or power boards
  • Faults in the wiring
  • An appliance fault (fridge, oven, charging cable, etc)
  • Wiring impacted by leaking pipes, a leaking roof or other water
  • Defective or faulty safety switch

Yes, legislation states that a safety switch is a requirement in all new homes.

Regulators recommend each individual circuit should have its own RCD safety switch. For example, one each for lighting, hot water systems and air conditioning. An individual safety switch on each allows you to better detect what the cause of a trip was.

When a safety switch goes off, it’s not necessarily a major emergency. When a switch does go off, firstly go and turn it back on. If it stays on, all is good. If you cannot turn it back on, some further investigation is needed.

If you can’t turn you safety switch back on, you can troubleshoot various appliances throughout the home by unplugging them, then trying the safety switch again. If you still cannot get the power back on then the issue could be faulty wiring, or just something an electrician has to fix.

That’s when you call Metropolitan Electrical Contractors. We have experienced, local electricians on call 24/7 so you can rest easy when an RCD safety switch goes off.
