116 - ANNEX B - LIST OF VARIATIONS BETWEEN THIS STANDARD AND IEC 742:1983

Specifies essential safety requirements for approval and test purposes. It contains general requirements and particular requirements for specific transformers.

This Standard is applicable to stationary or portable, single-phase or polyphase, air cooled isolating and safety isolating transformers, associated or otherwise, having a rated supply voltage not exceeding 1000 V a.c. and rated frequency not exceeding 500 Hz, the rated output not exceeding:(a) For isolating transformers: (i) 25 kV.A for single-phase transformers. (ii) 40 kV.A for polyphase transformers.(b) For safety isolating transformers: (i) 10 kV.A for single-phase transformers. (ii) 16 kV.A for polyphase transformers.The no-load and rated output voltages do not exceed:(A) For isolating transformers, 1000 V a.c. and 1000 +2 V unsmoothed d.c.(B) For safety isolating transformers, 50 V a.c. r.m.s., or 120 V ripple free d.c. between conductors or between any conductor and earth.Rated values, appropriate to each type of transformer, are indicated in Chapter 2 and Chapter 3.NOTES:This Standard is applicable to those isolating transformers used when the installation rules call for the separation of circuits for the supply of equipment (for example, shavers, portable tools and lawn mowers) or of certain parts of the circuit. This Standard is applicable to safety isolating transformers used for the supply of circuits for safety extra-low voltage equipment (for example, toys, bells, portable tools and handlamps). This Standard applies to transformers associated with specific items of equipment, to the extent indicated by other Australian or Australian/New Zealand Standards. This Standard is applicable to dry type or encapsulated transformers. It is not applicable to transformers filled with oil, sand or similar substances. In locations where special environmental conditions prevail, particular requirements may be necessary in accordance with AS 3000 in Australia and with the Electricity Regulations in New Zealand.
