Testing Earth Leakage Devices

The ELCB or ELR should switch the power off


without delay.
Warning, Should the circuit breaker fail to switch
the power off the unit is faulty and it shall be
replaced without delay.
Using the K5410 connect the Primary of the
connector block to L2 of the power of RCD, and
the Secondary of the connector block to L1 of
the load of RCD
Select the tester to auto ramp
Pressdown turn and lock the orange test button
and wait for the RCD to trip
Check and record the tripping value mA
Restore the tripped RCD and close up the panel

Procedure to test an ELCB or ELR on a 230


volt single phase circuit supplying socket
outlets
Notify the relevant persons about the test and
request them to switch off all equipment that will
be effected by the power interruption.
Locate the ELCB or ELR that needs to be tested
and press the test button on the ELCB or ELR.
The ELCB or ELR should switch the power off
without delay
Warning, Should the circuit breaker fail to switch
the power off the unit is faulty and it shall be
replaced without delay.
Note: Provided the device operated correctly
when the test button was pressed, a second test
to proof earth path continuity shall be conducted
in the following way.
Using the K5410 connect the Primary of the
connector block to the Neutral of the power of
RCD, and the Secondary of the connector block
to the Line of the load of RCD
Select the tester to auto ramp
Pressdown turn and lock the orange test button
and wait for the RCD to trip
Check and record the tripping value mA

Warning, Should the circuit breaker fail to switch


the power off during the second test, earth
continuity is poor and need to be re instated.

SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
Whenever a test is conducted to prove the
functioning of an ELCB or ELR, personnel should
take extra care not to touch any live points that
might have been exposed for the purpose of the
test.
Test probes and the testing device should be of
the approved type and should not be used unless
it is in a sound condition.
Only a competent person shall conduct an earth
path continuity test.
The test method and the test criteria should be
clearly understood by all the personnel involved
before the test is conducted.

K.

PROHIBITIONS
Do not attempt to make measurement in the
presence of flammable gasses. Otherwise the
use of the instrument may cause sparking which
can lead to explosion.
