Residual-current Device - Testing

Testing

RCDs can be tested with the built-in test button to confirm functionality on a regular basis. RCDs if wired improperly may not operate correctly and are generally tested by the installer to verify correct operation. Use of a solenoid voltmeter from live to earth provides a external path and can test the wiring to the RCD. Such a test may be performed on installation of the device and at any "downstream" outlet.

    Bourbon’s the only drink. You can take all that champagne stuff and pour it down the English Channel. Well, why wait 80 years before you can drink the stuff? Great vineyards, huge barrels aging forever, poor little old monks running around testing it, just so some woman in Tulsa, Oklahoma can say it tickles her nose.
    John Michael Hayes (b.1919)

    Now I see that going out into the testing ground of men it is the tongue and not the deed that wins the day.
