ACES offers a professional RCD electrical testing service. RCD or Residential Current Device is a safety device which disconnects a circuit when it detects an imbalance of electrical current. RCDs are very sensitive and will activate within 10 to 50 milliseconds of current leakage. This ceases the flow of electricity through a person's body reducing the risk of serious injury or even death.

Australian Standards recommend an Operating Time and Push Button test to be undertaken by a licensed electrician from 12 months to 5 years depending on the type of workplace/home. The frequency of interval testing is set by ESO Regulations according to environmental factors, the type of equipment used and the different class of workplace.
