RCD’s, also known as Residual Current Devices or Safety Switches, are required to be tested in Canberra businesses. Testing of RCD’s involves two testing to be conducted per year. The first test is a Push Button Test to ensure that the internals react in a timely manner with no delay to the test facility. An Electrician or Licenced technician can perform the Yearly test which can be completed in two ways, with or without an Electrician. An Electrical with an observer, who is trained in switchboard rescue, can remove the switchboard covers and access all relevant test points efficiently to perform the required testing. A non-electrician or Licenced technician will use an RCD Test meter to determine if the RCD phases react to below 300ms.
