Extension Leads - Australian Industrial 3 Phase & Single Phase Leads
Australian Industrial Three Phase and Single Phase Extension Lead.
The EEC Australian Standard Industrial three phase and single phase extension leads are available in 3 ranges.
The “light” extension lead has the shortest maximum length allowed from the outlet to the appliance.
These light duty extension leads are recommended for indoor use or short duration outdoor applications where the ambient temperature is below 40°C.
For extended use outdoors or in environments with high ambient temperatures use the Heavy extension leads.
(Intermittent use: Ambient temperature above 40°C below 45°C)
The “heavy duty” extension lead is suitable for indoor, outdoor and harsh environments.
The “heavy duty” extension lead has a larger diameter cable and longer maximum allowable length from the outlet to the appliance than the “light duty” lead.
For indoor, outdoor and harsh environments.
The “construction” lead has a larger diameter cable and longer maximum allowable length from the outlet to the appliance than “heavy duty” leads.
The “construction lead” is suitable for use on sites that:
- Long runs with few outlets.
- If the lead is connected to a temporary site power board a that is a long distance from the local distribution board,
- Where voltage drop is a consideration (either the machine is a considerable distance from the main distribution board or has high starting current).
*For the calculation of the maximum extension cable length, the outlet is assumed to be 25m from the distribution board and the extension lead length is additional.
