BE Switchcraft - Switchboard Compliance to AS/NZS 61439

Australia Standard, published in May 2016

BE Switchcraft has been performing tests since 1968 and these play an influential role in our design and construction processes. These tests are the foundation of our switchboard design and enable us to manufacturer a high quality, fully compliant product.

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 (AS/NZS 61439:2016) is another example of this.

Coinciding with the release of the new Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 61439:2016, B.E. Switchcraft embarked on a series of tests at:

TUV Rheinland Australia Pty. Ltd.

High Power Laboratory in Heidelberg, Victoria.
Austest Laboratories Pty. Ltd. 2/9 Packard Avenue, Castle Hill, NSW.

Austest Laboratories Pty. Ltd. 12 Newfield Road, Para Hills West, SA.
