    The 17th Edition Use of RCD's Explained
    It's important to understand that the 17th Edition differentiates between installations depending on the user.

    E.g. the regulations talk of "installations not under the
    supervision of skilled or instructed persons" and "socket
    outlets for general use by ordinary persons"
    This type of installation requires "Additional Protection" by use of 30mA RCDs on many circuits that have not previously
    needed protection by RCDs.

    Considering most domestic installations have a few
    socket circuits, a few lighting circuits a couple of bathroom
    circuits amongst others and, if all of these have been wired
    in the traditional manner, with twin & earth cable beneath
    the plaster surface, its difficult to come to any other
    conclusion than every circuit requires 30mA protection
    as well as protection by MCBs.

    However, it's important to ensure that a single fault
    does not cause inconvenience, danger or other hazards
    therefore more than one 30mA RCD will be required.

    For example a fault on the shower should not plunge the
    bathroom into darkness at the same time.

    There are many types of property to consider from
    bed-sits to multi storey town houses.
    Dwellings with one bathroom to larger properties with two
    bathrooms and en- suites.
    Each will require its own design considerations.

    There are many types of equipment to consider too.
    Some that can be grouped together onto one RCD like in
    a split load board but, there are other items of
    equipment that may require a dedicated supply such as
    smoke alarms, burglar alarms, warden call, door entry etc.

    Alp Electric Limited can supply a variety of consumer units and devices that will help the designer and installer to meet these new regulations.
