Welcome to this simple page on RCD devises and protecting your pets and family from electrocution and electrical fires.

1). I will start off with what the words RCD stand for and why you need them if you use any form of electrical or electronic devise in the home, office or even Animal shelters or were ever electricity is being used RCD stands for (Residual Current Device).

2). Many electrical fires are caused by earth leakage current due to faulty wiring or electrical equipment going wrong. In fact, leakage current of 250 milliamps or less can start a fire. Yet normal protection devices will not detect such low current levels. However, RCD's will trip out and greatly reduce the risk of an electrical fire.
