Why machine builders should consider digital RCDs

Why machine builders should consider digital RCDs

Eaton has published a white paper entitled ‘Increase uptime using digital RCDs’, which discusses the advantages and benefits of applying digital technology to residual current devices (RCDs). Their advanced monitoring and pre-warning capabilities allow machine builders to improve both reliability and safety, while saving time and money for themselves and their customers during export of equipment.

The white paper is the second in a series of three exploring residual current topics. It shows that with the correct implementation of RCDs, machine builders can enhance the performance and safety of their equipment, ultimately leading to increased productivity for their customers. Digital technology can deliver vital data to service personnel, allowing them to perform preventive maintenance and minimise machine downtime.

Digital RCDs are the optimum choice for machine builders, combining protection functionality with digital features. Unique in the circuit protection market, they continuously measure residual currents and display their status locally with pre-warning LEDs; as well as remotely via potential-free outputs. Protection status is always available at a glance, thereby reducing maintenance costs and unscheduled call outs. This enables service teams to react promptly to problems and keep system downtime to a minimum.
