Does immediate disconnection always make sense?
Especially in the production process, unplanned disconnection of installation parts usually leads to production stoppage as well as equipment damage and jeopardise not only the process reliability but also the quality of the goods to be produced. The result is unforeseeable additional costs for companies.
Therefore, it is important not only to interrupt the power supply with suitable protective devices when residual currents are actually present, but also to detect emerging residual currents at an early stage. Because only those who keep a permanent eye on their electrical installation can react in time without the protective device disconnecting. For this purpose, a combination of residual current monitoring and residual current protective device is suitable, e.g. MRCDs (Modular Residual Current protective Devices) from Bender.
