The Type A DP RCD Switched Socket (Residual Current Device) is an important safety device that is designed to protect individuals from electrical shocks or electrocution caused by residual currents. This device is suitable for equipment with electronic components, such as IT equipment, and can detect both AC residual current and pulsating DC up to 6 mA. The Type A RCD is a passive or latching type device that will automatically reset after a power outage, without the need for manual resetting.
One of the key features of the Type A DP RCD Switched Socket is its tripping current (IΔn) of 30mA. This means that the device will trip and cut off the power supply when the current flowing through the circuit exceeds 30mA. This helps to protect individuals from potentially fatal electric shocks by quickly disconnecting the circuit. The trip time at IΔn is 40ms, which is fast enough to provide adequate protection for users.
Type A RCD.
Its suitable for installation in a wide range of settings, including residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. The device comes with outboard rockers, which make it easy to operate and ensure that it is always visible to users.
The Type A RCD is a double pole switch type device, which means that it is capable of disconnecting both the live and neutral conductors. This provides an extra level of safety and ensures that the device is fully compliant with relevant safety standards. The device also comes with dual earth terminals, which makes it easy to connect to an earth conductor.
The device is also compatible with a wide range of wiring configurations, which makes it suitable for use in a variety of settings.
Its fast tripping time, dual pole switch, and dual earth terminals make it a reliable and efficient safety device that is suitable for a wide range of applications. With its easy installation process and outboard rockers, the Type A RCD is an ideal safety device for residential, commercial, and industrial settings.
