Eaton has published a new white paper entitled ‘Protecting man and machine against damaging residual currents’. The paper outlines the functions and types of Residual Current Devices (RCDs), and demonstrates how machine builders can improve both reliability and safety, while saving time and money for themselves and their customers during export of equipment.

It is the first white paper from the power management company in a series of three discussing the subject of RCDs. It offers useful guidance for machine and system builders seeking to understand the issues involved in selecting and installing RCDs. It also reviews the devastating effects of an electrical current on the human body, the functioning of RCDs, their installation and role within an overall protection strategy.
