xEffect FRCmM Type F residual current circuit breaker

The xEffect Type F residual current circuit breaker is a special variant of the Type A breaker with modified frequency characteristics. The Type F RCD complies with IEC/EN 62423 and provides safe and reliable protection against sinusoidal residual currents and pulsating DC fault currents. It can also handle residual currents with mixed frequencies up to 1 kHz (10, 50, 1,000 Hz) as per IEC/EN 62423.

xEffect FRCmM Type F residual current circuit breaker
Nominal Currents
of 16 to 100 A
According to
IEC/EN 62423
Residual Currents
30, 100 and 300 mA

Core features

  • Detection of mixed frequencies for increased protection in applications with 1-phase frequency converters
  • Reduction of nuisance tripping thanks to
    - time-delayed tripping
    - increased current withstand capability > 3 kA
  • Higher load rating for DC residual currents up to 10 mA
  • For fault current/residual current protection and additional protection
  • Wide range of nominal currents
  • Comprehensive range of accessories
  • Contact position indicator
  • Fault current tripping indicator
  • Transparent designation plate
  • Residual current devices
  • Compatible with the other devices from the xEffect series, which can be connected by means of a standard busbar
  • Twin-purpose terminal (lift/open-mouthed) at top and bottom
  • Can be positioned on busbar at top or bottom
  • Free terminal space despite installed busbar
  • FRBmM-1N universal tripping signal switch (also suitable for FAZ) can be retrofitted
  • Z-HK auxiliary switch can be retrofitted
  • Contact position indicator red - green
  • Time-delayed types suitable for use with standard fluorescent lamps, with or without electronic ballast (30mA-RCD: 30 units per phase conductor; 100mARCD: 90 units per phase conductor)
  • The installation position does not affect the functioning of the device
  • Since tripping does not depend on the mains voltage, this RCD is suitable for “fault current/residual current protection” as well as “additional protection” within the meaning of the applicable standards
  • Mains connection at either side
  • The 4-pole device can also be used for 2- or 3-pole connections
  • Type F: Increased protection in applications with 1-phase frequency converters; higher load rating with DC residual currents up to 10 mA
  • Increased protection in applications with 1-phase frequency converters thanks to the detection of mixed frequencies
