What is a Push-button test?
Any person can perform the push button test; however before that person performs the test they must be deemed competent.
The push-button test is to ensure that the RCD will trip when there is an earth leakage, and break the electrical circuit protecting the individual from suffering an electric shock, or electrocution. When you press the test button, and the RCD has detected an imbalance, the on/off switch will jump to the “off” position.
The test button will only test the RCD if an electricity supply is connected.
