xPole PFIM Type F residual current circuit breaker

Eaton offers a complete range of compact residual current devices for fault current/residual current and additional protection in residential and small commercial applications. Type F circuit breakers are a special variant of type A devices with modified frequency characteristics. This Type F RCDs 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 of up to 1 kHz (10, 50, 1,000 Hz) as per IEC/EN 62423.

xPole PFIM Type F residual current circuit breaker
Compliant to
IEC/EN 62423
current withstand capability
3 kA
DC residual currents
up to 10 mA

Core features

  • Increased protection in applications with 1-phase frequency converters thanks to the detection of mixed frequencies
  • Reduction of nuisance tripping thanks to
    - time-delayed tripping
    - increased current withstand capability > 3 kA
  • Higher load rating with DC residual currents up to 10 mA
  • Comprehensive range of accessories
  • Contact position indicator
  • Automatic re-setting possible (with autorecloser)
  • Compatible with the other devices from the P 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
  • Z-A universal tripping signal switch (also suitable for PLS and PKN) 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)
  • The installation position does not affect the functioning of the device
  • Line voltage-independent tripping
  • Mains connection at either side
  • The 4-pole device can also be used for 2- or 3-pole connections

Reliable protection for machines

These products provide an optimal system and additional protection against residual earth leakage currents for a wide range of applications by offering different tripping characteristics to cater for various electrical systems and components that can generate. Available in a comprehensive range of nominal current values and with optional accessories.

Suitable type

Tripping is line voltage-independent. Consequently, the RCD is suitable for “fault current/residual current protection” and “additional protection” within the the meaning of the applicable installation rules.

Increased protection in applications

Increased protection in applications with 1-phase frequency converter due to the detection of mixed frequencies and higher load capacity with smooth DC fault currents up to 10 mA.
