What is an RCD? A residual-current device (RCD), or as it is more commonly known as a 'Safety Switch' is an electrical wiring device that disconnects a circuit whenever it detects that the electric current is not balanced.
Or in Simpler terms its the little switch in your switchboard that protects you and your family from harm if there is a problem with an appliance or the electrical installation of your home or workplace.
What if my switchboard doesn't have an RCD? Many switchboards are the old ceramic fuse types, especially in older inner city areas like Essendon and Flemington and even out further such as Doncaster and Greensborough. Melbourne Wide Electrical can protect your family by upgrading your switchboard to full RCD protection. Its the only way to have full confidence that your family is safe from electric shock and appliance failure.
