Inverter standard AS/NZS4777.1 has been amended BUT is not being implemented until cited in regulation in NZ until mid 2017. The current inverter standard is still applicable in NZ. Some lines companies may insist on using the new standard. Should this occur please contact SEANZ.
New battery standards from Standards Australia/NZ are being developed and the DRAFT will be availabe in April 2017 for consultation. The standard attempts to take account of a number of risks (given developments with some battery powered devices) through various mitigation techniques as the safety factor is important as is the practical component of battery implementations. All submissions will be considered by the EL042 RES committee who finalise the standard. SEANZ encourages all members to have their say - download the DRAFT and make comment as this affects all members.
