Review of Australian Standards. To keep abreast of progress in industry, Australian Standards are subject to periodic review and are kept up to date by the issue of amendments or new editions as necessary. It is important therefore that Standards users ensure that they are in possession of the latest edition, and any amendments thereto. Full details of all Australian Standards and related publications will be found in the Standards Australia Catalogue of Publications; this information is supplemented each month by the magazine The Australian Standard, which subscribing members receive, and which gives details of new publications, new editions and amendments, and of withdrawn Standards. Suggestions for improvements to Australian Standards, addressed to the head office of Standards Australia, are welcomed. Notification of any inaccuracy or ambiguity found in an Australian Standard should be made without delay in order that the matter may be investigated and appropriate action taken.

This Standard was issued in draft form for comment as DR 86009.

PREFACE
This standard was prepared by the Associations Committee on Electrical Installations for Outdoor Sites Under Heavy Conditions (Including Opencast Mines and Quarries) to supersede AS 3007, Part 11982. It is essentially identical with IEC 6211* which was prepared by the corresponding IEC Technical Committee, i.e. TC 71. Where this standard deviates technically from IEC 6211 by way of different or additional requirements, this is indicated by a rule in the margin against the clause, or part thereof, affected. A summary of such technical variations is given in the Annex. The Australian Committee (EL/33) has actively participated in the work of IEC TC 71 which has as its objective the development of uniform and internationally acceptable rules for the safe use of electricity in opencast mines, quarries, stockpiles and the like. Such applications present particularly onerous conditions for the electrical apparatus and systems, including continual alteration of the location of the apparatus and systems, extension of the operational area, and adverse environmental conditions. Because of the size of the plant and the need for mobility, supply is frequently at high voltage over long distances, by means of trailing cables. This should be compared with other industries where the electrical installations are generally fixed. The AS 3007 series specifies requirements for the installation and operation of electrical apparatus and systems in the abovementioned locations, with the object of ensuring the safety of persons, livestock and property. AS 3007.1 (this standard) outlines the scope of the composite standard and provides definitions for some of the terms used. AS 3007.2 specifies the measures which are required for protection against electric shock in normal service from direct contact with live parts; for protection against electric shock from parts which may become live in the event of a fault (indirect contact); and for protection against the effects of overcurrent resulting from overload or short circuit conditions. AS 3007.3 specifies general requirements for the equipment and ancillaries associated with the electrical installation. AS 3007.4 sets out the requirements which are specific to particular installations, together with any exemptions from the general requirements of AS 3007.2 and AS 3007.3 which apply for such installations. AS 3007.5 sets out the normal operating procedures which should be carried out to ensure the safety of personnel. The AS 3007 series recognizes several types of power supply system and specifics the protective measures which are necessary for each system. Requirements for the protection of personnel from indirect contact (see Section 2 of AS 3007.2) are based on the concept of permissible voltage versus time limits, which take into account the pathophysiological effects of electric current passing through the human body, the typical industry conditions, and the probability of persons being in contact with the plant. In this and other respects the AS 3007 series differs in approach from the practically evolved requirements of AS 3000, SAA Wiring Rules. It will therefore be necessary for the regulatory authorities concerned to clearly delineate the respective areas of application for the AS 3007 series and for AS 3000.

ANNEX

SUMMARY OF TECHNICAL DEVIATIONS BETWEEN THIS STANDARD AND IEC 621-1 Clause 1.1. Items (e), (f) and (g) of the corresponding clause in IEC 621-1 have been omitted (and subsequent items redesignated) as the equipment described is not specifically covered in the IEC 621 series and is unlikely to be dealt with in the future. Clause 3.25. The words but, by convention, not a PEN conductor have been deleted from the end of the definition since, under certain installation conditions, PEN conductors carry neutral currents and hence must be regarded as a live part. Clauses 3.39 and 3.40. These are additional definitions taken from IEC 71-1. Clause 3.43. The definition has been simplified in order to make it more easily understood.
