    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies procedures for the safety inspection and testing of low voltage single phase and polyphase electrical equipment, connected to the electrical supply by a flexible cord or connecting device. It also include procedures for the safety inspection and testing of: Residual current devices (RCDs) except those within the scope of AS/NZS 3003 and NZS 6115; and Portable inverters that generate or produce low voltage.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies procedures for the safety inspection and testing of low voltage single phase and polyphase electrical equipment, connected to the electrical supply by a flexible cord or connecting device, and that(a) Is new equipment placed into service for the first time;(b) Is already in-service;(c) Has been serviced or repaired;(d) Is returning to service from a second-hand sale; or(e) Is available for hire.This Standard also specifies procedures for the safety inspection and testing of(f) Residual current devices (RCDs) except those within the scope of AS/NZS 3003 andNZS 6115; and(g) Portable inverters that generate or produce low voltage.Typical examples of equipment covered by this Standard are:(h) Portable equipment, hand-held equipment and stationary equipment, designed forconnection to the low voltage supply by a supply cord, an appliance inlet or pins forinsertion into a socket-outlet (see Figure G1);(i) Cord sets, cord extension sets and outlet devices (also known as electrical portableoutlet devices (EPODs), or power boards);(j) Flexible cords connected to fixed equipment in hostile environments;(k) Portable power supplies (includes power adaptor/plug-pack, both of the safety isolatingtransformer and switch-mode type);(l) Battery chargers including those for commercial or industrial use;(m) Portable and transportable heavy duty tools such as high pressure washers and concretegrinders.
