Residual current operated circuit-breakers without integral overcurrent protection for household and similar uses (RCCB's) - Part 1: General rules - Supplement 1: Operating instructions for the use of RCCB according to DIN EN 61008-1 (VDE 0664-10)

Title (German)

Fehlerstrom-/Differenzstrom-Schutzschalter ohne eingebauten Überstromschutz (RCCBs) für Hausinstallationen und für ähnliche Anwendungen - Teil 1: Allgemeine Anforderungen - Beiblatt 1: Anwendungshinweise zum Einsatz von RCCB nach DIN EN 61008-1 (VDE 0664-10)


The aim of this Supplement is to provide persons dealing with the planning, erection and maintenance of electrical installations with information for the construction and function of residual current devices and operating instructions for their use and application. These operating instructions deal with residual current devices (RCDs) with rated voltages not exceeding 440 V a.c. and rated currents not exceeding 125 A, intended principally for protection against shock hazard for household and similar uses. They provide the user (for example, electrician and electrical planner) with additional information on the choice and application of RCDs within the framework of installation regulations. The responsible committee is Subcommittee UK 541.3 "Fehlerstrom-Schutzeinrichtungen" ("Residual current devices") of the DKE (German Commission for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies) at DIN and VDE.
