General Information about RCD Tests
5.2 General Information about RCD Tests
The contact voltage UB and the trip time t required
by the RCD to disconnect the subsequent current
circuit from the mains represent important measurement units for the asessment
of an RCD.
The contact voltage represents the voltage present during an insulation error between two simultaneously touchable components.
At a measuring circuit without probe, available
voltages between PE and earth can influence
the measurement.
a) the maximum allowable value for the contact
voltage (25V/50V) may not be exceeded within
any system during tripping at nominal residual
current.
b) the RCD must trip within a time limit of 300ms.
The task of an residual current device (RCD) consists in switching off a system within a defined time
period after an error prior the contact voltage reaches the permissible limit value of 25V / 50V.
The system testing should be started by carrying out
a visual inspection, in particular of the protective
earth connection.
Before using the N-conductor as probe check
that all neutral points have low ohm resistance
to the main neutral line. A available voltage of
the N conductor to the arth can influence the
measurement.
The measuring function uses the N-conductor as a
probe. Check first the connection between the neutral point of the distribution system and earth before the test is started. A possible voltage between
the N-conductor and earth may influence the measurements.
Leakage currents by preconnected loads can
influence the measuring
1. Within the IT system, the protective earth conductor doesnot have to be connected with the
PEN but with the protective earth connection.
2. The protective earth conductor must be connected to the PEN prior to the RCD within the TN system.
3. An insulation measurement as described in Section 5.2 must be performed. In particular it must
be proved, that there is no connection between N
and PE following the RCD.
4. Proof regarding the low impedance connection of
equipotential bonding conductors in compliance
with Section 5.4 must be available.
Attached loads or operating supplies which
contains capacitors or circulating machines
can elongate the trip time.
Time-delayed residual current devices trip at
nominal residual current within 130…500ms,
for double nominal fault current within
60…200 ms. Such RCDs are implemented as
main residual current protection devices
(please refer to IEC 61008-1) and are marked
with the symbol “ S ”.
The protective earth must be free of external
voltage for the RCD test. However if an extraneous voltage is present, the instrument only
indicates the voltage VC having been generated by the measurement. The measurement interruption caused by excess of UL by VC is only
generated by the actual voltage present between the neutral conductor (N) and the protective earth (PE).
Any test and measurement procedures in circuits equipped with residual current devices
should only be performed after having consulted the operator terminals (data processing
systems, material processing, motors, etc.).
Prior to testing, we recommend all loads are
switched off as they could falsify the measurement result.

Starting of RCD Test
5.2.1 Information regarding RCD testing
The instrument TELARIS RCD Analyzer allows the
measurement of trip times for standard RCDs and
selective RCDs for different residual currents. Additionally, the ground resistance and the contact
voltage can be measured without RCD tripping. The
additional ramp function allows determination of
the exact residual current and trip time. The instrument is equipped with an automatic RCD function
to carry out fully automatic RCD tests.
Table 1 and 2 informs about the type of current to be selected and about multiplication factors of nominal residual current.The multiplication factors may not be selected within all
measurement functions and are in these cases
disabled for the user.
The nominal residual current selection also allows selection of selective RCDs (not possible
for RCD TEST I∆/ta/UB). When selecting the
selective RCD, the symbol "S" (7) appears on
the display.
To carry out a complete socket test, the contact
electrode PE (21) must be touched. If the symbol socket error (4) appears, a PE error is present.
If many measurements are carried out interrupted only by short breaks, the built-in overtemperature protection of the RCD Analyzer
might respond, and the thermometer symbol
(15) appears on the display. Subsequent measurements can only be carried out, once the instrument has cooled down and the thermometer symbol has gone out, thus avoiding any
instrument damage. Any tests at nominal residual currents 10mA / 30mA may be started
even if the thermometer symbol is on, as these
currents do not lead to a heating up of the instrument.
I∆N:
If the RCD trips during testing, the socket error
symbol (4) is displayed. This symbol is also
displayed if the RCD is not in order and an incorrect tripping has been caused!
I∆N:
I∆N:
If the instrument is switched off using function
selection switch or if the instrument automatically switches off due to the automatic power
off function, the pre-set nominal residual current value is maintained. Parameters such as
phase position (0°, 180°), current type (AC, DC
Plus, DC) and the nominal residual current
multiplication factor are reset to the standard
(default) values (0°, AC, x1).

5.2.4
Starting RCD Test with “RCD Tripping,
Function Auto”
For this test, the trip current I of the RCD is measured. The contact voltage VC is measured during
the preliminary test at a current of 40%I∆N. The
RCD test is resumed after the successful preliminary test at a residual current, rising in steps of 10
% from 40 % I∆N until maximum 140 % I∆N. The
presently active residual current is indicated on the
display and in the event of the RCD tripping the trip
time of the RCD is meausured. The contact voltage
VC is evaluated for the trip current I .
The method of the rising test current is not necessarily binding in compliance with VDE, however represents a useful aid during trouble
shooting.
Test and measurement instruments within networks being protected by RCDs should only be
used after agreement with the final instrument
user (DP systems, process technology, motors, etc.).

smaller than 300ms. When performing standard
test at I∆N.
If the RCD already trips at 50 % I∆N or not at
all at a residual current value higher than 100
% I∆N, the RCD is faulty or the incorrect nominal residual current has been selected. The attention symbol (1) is displayed and the symbol
for exceeding the limit (2) is indicated together with the trip current (tRCD) display
If trip time tRCD of RCD exceeds 300ms, the measurement value for an trip time is displayed as

Maintenance / Battery Replacement
9.0 Maintenance
When using the instrument in compliance with the instruction manual, no special maintenance is required.
9.1 Cleaning
If the instrument is dirty after daily usage, it is advised
to clean it by using a damp cloth and a mild household
detergent.
Prior to cleaning, ensure that the instrument is
switched off and disconnected from external voltage supply and any other instruments connected
(such as EUT, control instruments, etc.).
10.0 Battery Replacement
If the battery symbol
appears in the display, proceed with battery replacement.
Prior to battery replacement remove the instrument from all measurement circuits.
The right order of the batteries is shown on the
inside of the battery compartment.
Batteries with reversed polarity can lead to instrument destruction. Furthermore, they may
explode or ignite.
Only use batteries as described in the technical
data section type 6LR61.
Switch off the instrument.
Loosen screws on the instrument rear.
Remove battery case cover (by slightly knocking
the instrument in the palm of the hand).
Remove discharged battery.
Insert new battery by respecting the correct polarity.
Replace battery case cover and tighten screws.
Instrument is operational.
Never use acid detergents or dissolvants for cleaning.
19
English
8.0 Energy Management
Approximately 5 minutes after last key operation, the
instrument switches off automatically (auto-poweroff). To switch the instrument on again, turn rotary
switch from the „OFF" position to the desired function.
If the batteries are almost completely discharged, the
battery symbol (5) appears. The instrument continues functioning without necessarily respecting the
specifications.
If the batteries continue to be used and discharged,
the instrument switches off at a point when the minimum battery voltage level is reached and may not be
switched on again.
Battery Replacement / Calibration Interval
Never try to disassemble a battery cell. Never
throw a battery into open flames as this could lead
to an explosion. Never subject batteries to humidity.
Please consider your environment when disposing of used batteries. They belong in a rubbish dump for hazardous waste. Generally
speaking you may return your batteries to the
point of sale.
The appropriate regulations concerning return,
recycling and disposal of used batteries must be
respected at all times.
If the instrument is not used over an extended
time period, we recommend to remove the battery. In the event of instrument contamination
caused by leaking battery cells, the instrument
has to be returned for cleaning and verification
to our factory.
11.0 Internal fuse
The internal fuse protects the instrument from
overload or wrong operation/use. The fuses can
trigger, if tensions > 600 V AC/DC are connected
to the instrument.
The fuse is inside the instrument, the instrument
must be opened for the exchange.
The fuses can only be replaced by returning the
instrument to the factory or to an authorized sales
repair service.
Exclusively use fuse of voltage, current and breaking capacity values in compliance with the
technical data section.
20
11.1 Indication in the display at defect fuse
If the instrument is correctly connected to the
mains and before the measurement displays the
symbols attention (1) and UB > UL (3), the internal fuse has blown.
The fuse must be replaced and the measurement instrument then checked by returning the instrument to
the factory or to an authorized sales repair service.
12.0 Calibration Interval
To obtain the specified measurement result accuracy the instrument should be regularly calibrated by
our after sales service. We recommend a calibration
interval of one year.
