New Australian Standards requirements for solar DC isolators

Solar DC isolators have been reclassified as Level 3 Equipment under the Electrical Equipment Safety System in recent changes to Australian Standard AS/NZS4417.2:2018. The change means that from 1 July 2018 all solar DC isolator must be tested and approved for use in Australia before they can be sold.

The Electrical Safety Regulator has determined that these changes do not apply in the Northern Territory at this stage.
