How to Wire an RCD?

Answer

An RCD, also known as a residual current circuit breaker (RCCB), is a device that disconnects a circuit whenever it detects imbalance between an energized conductor and the return neutral conductor. As most RCDs, have wiring diagrams printed on their sides, it would be prudent to use specific manufacturer's instructions to guide you.

You need to connect the neutral wire to the left hand side of your Rcd and the live wire on to the right hand side. Some Rcd brands can be wired in the opposite way with the neutral wire on the right and you need to read the manual provided in its package carefully. The gadget usually has a sticker on how the connections are supposed to be made.
