13 Sep Is Your Earth Leakage Tripping You Up?
Know What An Earth Leakage Fault Is and How Dangerous It Might Be To Your Family?
When you are working you will want to know more about the different kinds of electrical safety devices you have available as a contractor.
One of those that you may not know about and really need to explore is be the earth leakage fault tester and what this does, but also how dangerous it will be to operate.
Once you know about this, it will be easier for you to know more about the danger you could have from the electricity being tripped due to leakage and what you should be doing when you do discover one of these as being an issue.
Now what is the Earth Leakage Fault Detector and what is it going to do?
Well, this is a product that is going to provide a reading for the different electric circuits that are in the Earth and mainly used around places that are going to be holding electrical items.
This is because the safety circuit will kick in when the voltage is detected and causing a lot of change in the system that is going to make it impossible for people to protect the circuits they have around the item.
As far as the danger levels you will find that it is going to be dependent on the amount of voltage that is coming out of the ground.
If it is not enough you will not have any problems however in South Africa with 220 volts the cover might get charged with current and give you a possibly life threatening shock, so better safe than sorry.
However, if you are looking at the item getting tripped you will find that it is going to protect the sensitive electrical equipment that could be damaged if the breakers are not tripped.
When you work with electrical items, you need to make sure you have the proper protection in place.
By knowing about the earth leakage fault meters and how dangerous these earth leakages are, it will be easier for you to find out why you would need to have these in place.
