Re: How type A and AC RCD technology works?

The internal design of type AC or type A RCD typically consists of the following core components

 

• a summation current transformer,

• an electronic circuit for signal processing (filtering and/or tripping decision),

• a trip unit,

• a latching mechanism

• electrical contacts.
