Can I use a timer with this unit to turn power on and off to an external IP66 socket?

Asked by: Gringo53
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This Masterplug RCD Adaptor is an Active (non-latching) type so it will trip if the power supply is cut. If you were to plug a timer into the adaptor, however, this would not cause it any problems.

is this RCD correct for a plug and play hot tub. IP44 requirement

Asked by: biddies
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This Masterplug RCD Adaptor is not specifically designed or manufactured to be waterproof, so can only claim a rating of IP20. It is unlikely that you will find a portable style Safety RCD which is rated IP44 or higher, you would perhaps be better off looking at a weatherproof double socket with integrated RCD protection.

How is this "non-latching" ?

This is described as "non latching". Surely it is mechanically latched, and will therefore stay on when there is no electrical supply; but turn off in the event of an earth-fault, and remain off until reset by the button,
Asked by: ripov
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The Masterplug `portable' Safety RCD Adaptors and Plugs use an electromagnet to keep them in their reset state instead of a mechanical latch, so they will act as if tripped by a fault if power to them stops at any time, this is considered to be safer for instances where the connected equipment has a high likelihood of being fitted with blades or other cutting parts and so could be harmful to health if it reactivated unexpectedly after a power cut.

Please elaborate "Added protection against electric shock". How does it protect? I have RCD fitted at main board. Thank you.

Asked by: Sursingh
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. Consumer Unit RCDs have a different set of requirements for trip speed, and in some cases have a higher tolerance for fault current. A `portable' Safety RCD plug or adaptor must trip for a 30mA fault level within 40mS, whereas consumer unit Safety RCD devices can have a fault level of 100mA in some cases and have an allowance of up to 300mS to trip in.
