Residual Current Circuit Breakers are aimed at protecting an individual from the risks of electrical shocks, electrocution andfires that are caused due to faulty wiring or earth faults.
RCCB is particularly useful in situations where there is a sudden earth fault occurring in the circuit.
In such situation, in absence of an RCCB in the circuit, an earth fault may occur and the person is at the risk of receiving an
However, if the same circuit is protected with RCCB, it will trip the circuit in fraction of a second thus preventing the person
from receiving an electrical shock. Therefore, it is a good and safe practice to install RCCB in your electrical circuit.
