Don’t take our word for it – here’s what other app users say:
Great app!!! I have been using this app for a few years now and I can not fault it, it’s easy and convenient to use and rather than having to overthink and take you away from the everyday job it saves time.
I downloaded this app last year and it was great very handy, There was an issue with the software but the developers was extremely helpful and went out of their way to fix this issue, I’ve recently downloaded the updated version and can honestly say it’s gold excellent stuff.
Handy app just made better thank you. The Mccb max zs sheets are so useful.
I couldn’t find a Zs reading for a breaker so I brought this app and I’m very impressed by it. Will be very handy on site for doing periodic’s.

MCCB EARTH FAULT LOOP IMPEDANCE
This Max Zs Values app contains many manufacture BS EN 60947-2 MCCB Zs tables, select 60947-2 MCCB Devices option to see the full list of manufactures, select a manufacture to view the MCCB Zs tables.
Print Zs Tables:
Once you have found the BS EN 60947-2 MCCB Zs table you were looking for you can then print the desired Zs table directly from your mobile device.

Electrical Protective Devices Acronyms
- MCB = Miniature Circuit Breaker
- MCCB = Moulded Case Circuit Breaker
- ACB = Air Circuit Breaker
- AFDD = Arc Fault Detection Device
- ELCB = Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker (obsolete)
- RCD = Residual Current Device
- RCBO = Residual current operated Circuit Breaker with Over-current protection
Once you have selected a protective device use the Rating column to select your device rating and hit the “Get Results” button to calculate the maximum permitted Zs value for your selected protective device and rating combination.

Max Ze Values
EXTERNAL ZE | DSO MAX ZE VALUES
The maximum permitted Ze depends on the earthing system type, TN-C-S = 0.35 Ohms, TN-S = 0.8 Ohms.
DSO = Distribution System Operator, previously known as DNO.
DNO = Distribution Network Operator, previously known as REC.
REC = Regional Electric Company.
Zs in TT Earthing Systems
RCD MAX ZS FOR TT SYSTEMS
Satisfying the maximum permitted earth fault loop impedance values in a TT earthing system may not be possible due the the higher Ze readings in a TT system. BS 7671 table 41.5 offers alternative maximum permitted Zs values for TT earthing systems, other regulations may also apply.
RCD TT Options
RCD OPERATING CURRENT:
- 30 mA
- 100 mA
