Tripping occurs when the charger is disconnected from the power supply. This can happen for a number of reasons, but the most common are:
MCB: A Miniature Circuit Breaker.
RCD: A Residual Current Device.
RCBO: A combined Residual Current Breaker with Overload. RCBO is an MCB and RCD together in one device.
Residual Current: A current that flows briefly after voltage is reduced to zero due to the momentum from the charge.
Inrush Current: Momentary current surge when an electrical device is turned on. Also known as input surge current and switch-on surge.
Tripping can occur for your own protection, so always make sure you consult a competent electrician. We recommend contacting your installer who will be able to attend and investigate further.
Do remember, it is advised to test all RCDs every 6 months. This can be done simply by pressing the ‘test’ button, but ask your installer for a demo if you’re unsure.
