230V Power Lead Adapter With Circuit Breaker & RCD
The 230V Power Breaker is an adaptor that safely connects the vehicle mains cable to a 10amp home socket.
Power Lead Adapter with Circuit Breaker & RCD
This power lead adapter is an essential piece of equipment for any motorhome, caravan or RV. It safely connects a caravan & motorhome power lead to a household 230V socket. Additionally, it is designed with an RCBO which protects life and overload on a circuit (overcurrent and short circuit).
An RCBO (Residual Current Breaker with Overcurrent) is used where there is a need to prevent overload on a particular circuit at the same time as preventing anyone getting a shock that has the potential to kill them. An RCBO will normally have two circuits for detecting an imbalance and an overload but use the same interrupt method (breaker or trip). It works in a similar way to an RCD measuring the current on the live and neutral conductors. If they are not equal it suggests there is current leakage to earth, e.g someone is touching the live conductor of a light as they are attempting to change a light bulb – the RCBO will break the circuit or trip.
An RCBO also works as an MCB (Mains Circuit Breaker). In this operation, it is designed to interrupt a current overload in a circuit. RCBOs are rated both by the normal current that is expected to carry, and the maximum short-circuit current that they can safely interrupt. A short circuit is an abnormal low-resistance connection between two nodes of an electrical circuit that are meant to be at different voltages, for example, if a liquid causes a connection between the live and neutral terminals of a plug.
Independently tested and certified, it meets the applicable electrical standard: AS/NZS 3190:2011 “Approval and test specification – Residual current devices (current-operated earth-leakage devices)” which includes portable RCDs. Must be used solely for it's intended purpose.
