"2018 could well be a historic year in the development of international electrical engineering, with the Netherlands setting the tone: from 230 Volt alternating current (AC) to 350 Volts direct current (DC) .The new core colors for DC are red, white and blue. This and more has been recorded in our country in the very first NPR 9090 for DC installations, which appears alongside the familiar low voltage standard NEN 1010.
