Selecting the correct RCD with your EV Charger

EV Charging poses a few interesting different challenges to our circuit protection design in the home. RCD selection is among the hardest, as it can vary based on the type of install and the size and brand of the EV charger we are looking to install.

In this video @william.winter looks at some of the key factors that surround RCD selection when installing an EV charger on a domestic property.

Things such as RDC-DD devices, what amperage the RCD should be, the maximum mA rating and more.

To top it off, there is also an amazing giveaway this week, with a bundle from our latest BLK EDITION Merch drop.
