Draft of AS/NZS 5033:2014 Amendment 1

09 November 2017 - A draft of AS/NZS 5033:2014 Amendment 1 has just been released for public comment.
This amendment requires that all DC isolators used on a PV system are of type DC-PV2. This is a new type of DC isolator specifically designed for PV applications.
