Low Voltage Conference - Sydney

Low Voltage Conference - Sydney

5th Australian Low Voltage Conference - Overview

The highly anticipated 5th Australian Low Voltage Conference is scheduled to take place in Sydney on the 20th and 21st of September. This event is to be held at the Novotel Darling Square, Sydney.

The conference will review the AS/NZS 3000:2018 standard, also known as the  Australia-New Zealand Wiring Rules and the recent release of Amendment 3 in May 2023. Demonstrated by Australian case studies, discussions will centre around the application of the standard, the latest amendments and their impact on the industry. For installations falling within the scope of this standard, adherence to its provisions is mandatory. Engineers involved in electrical system planning, design, installation, and maintenance must possess a clear understanding of the various requirements specified within the standard.

In addition to addressing the AS/NZS 3000:2018 standard, the conference will provide invaluable insights into the latest developments and best practices concerning arc flash hazards and isolation safety issues. Contrary to common misconceptions, arc flash risks are not limited to high voltage equipment. In some cases, low voltage systems can possess higher arc flash energy levels due to longer fault clearing times associated with high prospective energy level faults.

This event aims to foster a safer working environment by promoting awareness, compliance, and the adoption of best practices in the field of electrical installations.
