1.3.5
These requirements do not anticipate additional construction, performance and marking considerations for LED equipment used in end-applications where subject to weather (outdoor use), installed in air handling spaces or in other environmental air spaces (plenums), or used in fire rated installations. LED equipment with such end-applications is subject to additional evaluation per applicable standards.

1.4
In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the Sstandard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

1.5
The values given in SI units are the units of record for the purposes of this Standard. When used, the values given in parentheses are for information and comparison only.

This standard applies to cable-pulling lubricants (compounds) and the testing and analysis of their interaction with wire and cable. Cable-pulling lubricants are used to lower the friction on cables when they are installed (pulled) into conduits, ducts, or directionally bored holes. These lubricants and/or their residues are in direct contact with the cable exterior covering and may remain so for the life of the cable. Cable-pulling lubricants shall be compatible with the cable. They shall not interfere with the function of any component of the cable system that they contact.

Compatibility of cable-pulling lubricants with cable covering is the only subject of this standard. Other important performance criteria for cable-pulling lubricants such as friction reduction, toxicity, combustibility, and so on are not discussed.

This standard uses accepted cable performance standards whenever possible. Relevant standards are cited in the text and listed in Clause 2 and Annex A.

This standard is applicable to ac contactors applied at voltages in the range of 1 501V to 15kV, and metal-enclosed contactor-based controllers, control centers, and other control assemblies and associated equipment applied at voltages in the range of 751V to 15kV, designed for operation at frequencies of 50 or 60 Hz on three-phase systems. These requirements cover equipment intended for use in ordinary (nonhazardous) locations and installed in accordance with the applicable local installation codes and standards (see Annex A, Item 1). These requirements, as modified by the applicable national standards for fire pump controllers, also cover fire pump controllers (see Annex A, Item 2).

This standard also includes requirements for controllers intended for service entrance applications. (See 5.204 and Annex A, Item 3.)

This standard also includes requirements for equipment incorporating solid state switching elements intended for starting, stopping, regulating, controlling, or protecting heating and other resistive loads, having ac voltage ratings in the range of 1 501V to 15kV.

This standard does not cover:

a) equipment for use in classified (hazardous) locations as defined in the applicable installation codes or standards;
b) components contained in contactors and contactor-based controllers for which individual component standards exist; and
c) auxiliary low voltage control assemblies (see Annex A, Item 4).

This standard also includes requirements for reduced-voltage solid state controllers. It does not, however, cover equipment consisting solely of electronic or solid state devices, circuits, or systems, nor does it cover electronic variable speed motor controllers (power conversion equipment). This standard does not cover controllers using only solid state devices in the main circuit.
