Adapter for Standards Compliant Testing of Portable Protective Devices

Adapter for standards compliant testing of type S and K PRCDs by simulating faults per DIN VDE 0701-0702, VDE 0661, BGI / GUV-I 608 and manufacturers’ specifications.
  • discontinuedAdapter for Standards Compliant Testing of Portable Protective Devices

According to DIN VDE 0661, portable protective devices are circuit breakers which can be connected between power consuming devices and a permanently installed electrical outlet by means of standardized plug-and-socket devices. They offer the increased levels of protection provided by protective measures utilized in electrical systems for the prevention of dangerous shock current as defined in DIN VDE 0100-410.

These portable protective devices serve to protect persons from electrical accidents in the low-voltage range from 130 to 1000 V, and consequently have to be suitable for commercial use. The SPE-PRCD (switched protective earth - portable residual current device) is available in different variants. Amongst other possibilities, they can be installed like an extension cord between a power consumer (as a rule a power tool) and en electrical outlet.
