AS/NZS 3000 WIRING COLORS

AS/NZS 3000 WIRING COLORS

(OP)
We are shipping a packaging machine to Australia.  This is my first experiance with thier wiring code.  Does anyone know where I cane find the color codes for Australia?  I have the AS/NZS 3000 book but I don't see anything refering to 24 VDC wiring.

RE: AS/NZS 3000 WIRING COLORS

To tell you the truth, I'm not aware of a specific colour code for 24V DC wiring.

I've seen a number of different systems in use, from red & black (much the same as 24V DC vehicle systems), to brown and grey (with either polarity depending on where you get it from). Each has its advantages and disadvantages, depending on the installation and what other equipment is installed in the vicinity.

Red & black isn't really ideal without lots of labelling as it can also be used for 240V AC. Same goes for the three phase colours.

Is it a specific order where you can ask the customer what their standard is?
