Now I feel better protected
on 23 January 2017
This review is for the Masterplug ARCDKG Safety RCD Adaptor
Reason for buying
I bought a couple of these to fit to a couple of greenhouse bar heaters rated at 55 and 120 watts, though the RCD plug will handle 13A and a FAR higher wattage draw than I'm using them for. I wanted protection against a heater developing a fault, or worst case a fire. these give me the peace of mind.
The units are small enough, and have the standard "test" and "reset" buttons on them. There is a small window on the front, which will go orange when the plug is in an operational state. The orange shown is not a light, but more a sliding piece of card or plastic, and can be quite hard to see through the limited sized window.
The plug does get warm near the top during use, but is not hot by any means.
It is difficult to say that it would trip when a fault occurs, as heaters are working fine, so I can't comment on it's effectiveness. I hope, as it is made by Masterplug(a well known and recognised brand), that it will do the job when needed. That's why I chose the Masterplug over other(maybe cheaper) models.
Thanks for reading. This is my experience with the RCD to date. If anything occurs, I will update this review accordingly.
