Posted By Topic: Location of switch to gas meter

Jan 21 2014 08:16

Am trying to get some information on the allowable distance between an isolating switch (in this case for a Heat Pump) and a gas meter.

I am struggling to find any information on minimum distances etc.

Can anyone help me. The scenario I am in is a isolating switch for a Heat Pump located approximately 1m above the gas meter and about 250mm to the right.

The information you require in contained in AS/NZS 3000 + amendments 1 and 2 clauses 4.18 and 4.19 AND the amended citation for AS/NZS 3000 in the ESR 2010 + amendments 1, 2 and 3 in schedule 2.

Alec, Fig 4.11, surely?

Quite right, Fig 4.11 not 4.10 (and the revised clause as pr schedule 2, not the 4.18.3 as published.
