Rated 4 out of 5 by Installs easy, fiddly clips Next day initial delivery after ordering online. Front cover retaining clips are fiddly to open (no instructions), but one clip was already broken on delivery. Returned to local Screwfix shop and replacement delivered within a day. Easy to install and does exactly what it says - 20 year guarantee offers complete reassurance. 21 Jun 2012

Answer: 
In the latching or Passive units the RCD will remain closed, once set, and will only trip when a hazardous earth fault occurs. If the unit loses supply - perhaps in a power cut - it will stay latched, making it particularly useful in commercial applications, such as controlling refrigeration units.

Non latching or Active units also trip when the power supply is lost, so they are useful for domestic applications - like controlling garden and power tools - where a sudden restoration of power might pose safety problems.
