To mitigate electrical risks, our products and solutions use insulation materials that can withstand high temperatures and moisture and ensure mechanical resistance. They are fully compliant with standards and certifications by government-run quality authorities.

Securely bonding each metal-housed appliance to earth with protective wire prevents such electric shocks. The protective device (MCB or RCD) trips as soon as the metal housing is energised.

    The hazard

    When insulation is damaged inside a machine, its protective casing comes into contact with a live part. The metal casing therefore also becomes live. If a person touches the machine, they will suffer an electric shock.

    The solution

    Protection against indirect contact can be provided by a circuit breaker if protective earth (PE) is cable-linked to the power source (TN System). If a dangerous current is detected, the circuit breaker trips. The sensitivity of the protection device must be calculated according to the impedance of the earth connections.

You can protect your customers by keeping potentially hazardous elements away from water points. The use of equipotential bonding between conductive parts and water pipes as well as high-sensitivity residual current devices is also a best practice.

RCDs operate in electrical installations by measuring the intensity difference between live and neutral conductors, detecting the current flowing through the human body. An RCD allows for immediate disconnection in the event of an electrocution risk.
  • Default Alternative Text

    Normal circumstances

    The socket outlet is energized. If an electrical device is plugged in, current flows from the source and back to the device, inside the supply system.

    Go to the next slide to see the hazard.
  • Default Alternative Text

    The hazard

    In case of flooding, water may rise up to the socket and penetrate it. A person standing in the water can suffer an electric shock caused by an additional current flowing through the water and back to the supply system through the earth.

    Go to the next slide to see the solution.
  • Default Alternative Text

    The solution

    The protection device detects a difference between phase current and the neutral current. If the current leakage reaches the danger level of 30 mA, the residual current circuit breaker trips immediately.
