    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies essential safety requirements for residual current devices for approval and test purposes. It is intended to be read in conjunction with AS 3100.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Specification applies to residual current devices and residual current relays (of the current-operated type), with a rated residual current not exceeding 300 mA, designed for operation at low voltage, having a rated load current not exceeding 100 A a.c., and intended to isolate supply or initiate a tripping signal in the event of a current flow to earth in the protected circuit, in excess of a predetermined level.This Specification does not apply to residual current units whose design is dedicated for use with a (particular) circuit-breaker, other than a miniature overcurrent circuit-breaker as defined in Appendix A of AS 3111.NOTE: It is intended that residual current units associated with circuit-breakers rated in excess of 100 A, either integrally or as an added unit, be covered by a separate Standard.It is not intended that this Specification apply to residual current devices or other earth-leakage devices for the protection of supply authority distribution systems, or for protection of equipment in mines covered by AS 2081.
