Switchboard Testing - AS/NZS 61439

Coinciding with the release of the new Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 61439, B.E.Switchcraft embarked on a series of tests at the TUV Rheinland Australia Pty. Ltd. High Power Laboratory in Heidelberg, Victoria and Austest Laboratories Pty. Ltd., 2/9 Packard Ave Castle Hill NSW and Austest Laboratories Pty. Ltd., 12 Newfield Rd Para Hills West SA.

BE Switchcraft has been performing tests since 1968 and these play an influential role in our adherence to the standards of the day and our own rigorous design and construction processes.

For us, making sure our customers are receiving the very best long term solution is at the core of the way we work and our proactive role in testing to the new Standard is another example of this.
