RCD Testing & Installation Services In Brisbane & The Gold Coast

Industrial Power and Automation provides RCD testing services for commercial and industrial clients across South East Queensland. Our skilled electricians use the latest technology to provide you with efficient and cost-effective solutions.

Our management software can log your assets and keep a detailed record of their service history, as well as send reminders when the next inspection is due. This leaves you to focus on what’s important, running your business.

If you are a business owner it is your obligation to ensure the safety of your workplace, and that includes regular testing of your electrical equipment. Queensland workplace health and safety states testing intervals from 3 months to 5 years depending on which industry you operate in.

A residual current device (RCD), commonly known as a safety switch, is a device that prevents dangerous electrical shocks from occurring.

Residual current devices need to be regularly tested to ensure they remain in correct working order as they will only provide ongoing protection if operational.

Our RCD testing includes:

After our testing is completed, any faulty items are reported immediately, and repairs are arranged if required. All test results are fully documented and supplied upon completion.

The frequency of their testing is outlined in AS/NZS 3760 Table 4. This table outlines the in-service safety inspection, testing method and frequency.

We also offer compliance testing services. This ensures your equipment is always in compliance with safety standards.

Our other compliance testing services include:

Emergency Light Testing

Emergency and exit lighting must be inspected, tested, and maintained in accordance with the AS/NZS 2293 Standard. Commercial emergency lighting and exit lighting systems are governed by the law.

All emergency and exit lights must undergo a 90-minute discharge test of the battery every 6 months as stated under the AS2293.2 Standard. Records of all tests and the subsequent actions taken must be kept for compliance purposes.

Test and Tagging

Test and tag is the process of inspecting and testing electrical equipment for safety in accordance with the test & tag frequencies outlined in the AS/NZS3760 Standard.

The process for test and tag is completed in two stages. First the equipment is visually inspected for any damage, then it is electrically tested to ensure there are no internal faults.

Thermal Imaging – Infrared Thermography

Thermal imaging can find hot spots caused by loose connections and defects in components. It detects problem areas so that failure or damage can be avoided ahead of time.

Industrial Power and Automation uses the latest technology in scanners which can detect electrical faults often missed by traditional methods of testing.

We are certified in Thermographic Scanning and our qualified technicians are recognised by the Australian Institute for Non-destructive Testing (AINDT).
