The REDs and the REDtest, REsidual current Device recloser, is made up of a residual current device and a recloser. The REDs and REDtest REsidual current Devices offer the following functions: bb protection of people against direct and indirect contacts bb protection of installations against insulation faults bb disconnection of on-load electric circuits, already protected against overloads and short-circuits bb automatic restart after insulation monitoring of the downstream circuit. REDtest provides the following additional functions: bb automatic and periodical test of the device, without breaking downstream circuit (REDtest). Only used on TT and TN-S earthing grounding systems.

Operation
REDs
The REDs operates in the residual current device mode, without automatic restart, when the sliding cover is open, i.e. to the right in the Auto Off position (Fig. 1). The automatic restart mode and the Autotest are activated, when the sliding cover is closed, i.e. to the left in the Auto On position (Fig. 2).

Test
Fig. 1

d This is only possible in manual mode, i.e. sliding cover open in the Auto Off
position. You can then manually test the device by pressing the Test key. The downstream installation is then temporarily broken. You must then manually reclose the RED by activating the O-l lever to power supply the downstream circuit.

REDtest

LED 2 LED 1

bb The REDtest carries out automatic testing of earth leakage protection every months. The test consists in opening and reclosing the REDtest, during which time continuity of supply of the downstream installation is guaranteed. Autotest: after checking installation insulation, the REDtest monitors its residual current device, without breaking the downstream power supply (bypass by bypass contact).

REDs
If the circuit is faulty, the switch is prohibited from reclosing. After a time delay of 15 minutes, the downstream circuit insulation is rechecked. There are then two possibilities: bb the installation is still faulty (the resistance to earth is lower than Rd): in this case a new check will be carried out in 15 minutes. bb the fault was temporary and has disappeared (the resistance to earth is higher than Rdo): the recloser automatically recloses the REDs.
