    100mA RCD TT Question

    I am replacing a TP isolator for a 4 pole 100mA RCD. The existing install is such with incoming cables at the top snd tales to the dis boards at the bottom. Am I right in thinking that for this application orientation of in and out on the RCD will not matter? Checking manufacturers details and...

    Tripping times for a 100mA RCD?

    Could anyone confirm if we test 100mA RCD's at x5? There is a lot of information on the web that says you only test at x1 but Table 3a in appendix 3 clearly shows a max disconnection time for a 100mA RCD at x5 to be 40ms. Thanks all.

    Fitting a 100ma RCD on Solar PV to solve nuisance tripping.

    A solar PV system keeps tripping the 30ma B curve RCD (at dawn). The system is a TNC-S and the cabling to the inverter is surface mounted SWA. Is there any reason to not swap the 30ma main switch out for a 100ma ?

    Static Caravan 100ma OK ?

    Just been to look at a single static caravan on a farm, they are looking for a EICR to be done. Incoming supply is TNCS. 80amp DP protected 10mm 2core SWA running 100 meters or more to a outdoor box under caravan containing a 100ma rcd and 16amp mcb, where it has been TTd fine. From this runs...

    Classification code for 100ma TT 3036

    Hi all, carried out an EICR recently on a caravan. System is a TT with 4293 100ma main switch then into a 3036 board. All wiring tested ok with just a few damaged accessories to change. RCD tested ok but its not time delay. Should I be recommending additional 30ma RCD protection for circuits (in...

    Hi all, Can anyone clarify whether it is O.k to remove a 100mA type s (time delay) Rcd which is upfront of a ammendment 3 splt load 30mA Rcd protected db, and replace it with a isolator? I can't seem to find a reference in the regs book. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    TT System 100ma S Type Housing

    Hi, Got a Domestic TT system which needs a new 100ma S Type RCD. What are your thoughts on this being placed in an Insulated or metal enclosure? It is not in an external meter cupboard so falls under 421.1.201 (within domestic). Thanks,

    100mA RCD on PME system

    I am going to a job this afternoon, new shower circuit. I noticed yesterday that the Wylex CU has a 100mA S-type RCD as the main switch and all the circuits are on 30mA RCBOs. PME system as far as I could tell (certainly not TT). Didn't give it much thought then, but was thinking about it...

    100mA rcd main switch

    Folks, I've just been at a job with a MEM split board with the sockets coveted by a 100mA, 100A main switch. The installation is 15 years old. Was 100mA ever acceptable in a domestic installation of this age? I'm beginning to doubt myself! Cheers.
