1 Scope

1.1
This Standard applies to electrically operated, general-purpose valves* and safety valves* that are intended to be used in ordinary locations in accordance with the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, for the control of fluids (e.g., air, gases, oils, refrigerants, steam, water, etc.), and rated 600 V and less.

* For convenience, the shorter term “valve” is used where the same requirements apply to both general-purpose and safety valves.
 

1.2
This Standard applies to electrically powered mechanisms that are designed to provide the signals needed for monitoring valve operation from a remote location and to electrically powered valve actuators*, that are designed to be fitted to valves.

* For convenience the term valve includes valve actuator unless otherwise stated.

1.3
This standard applies to self-contained electro-hydraulic* actuators both linear and rotary type. 

*The above type of actuators are electrically operated and use hydraulic fluid as a driving medium.  The above can be operated in conjunction with a remote signal.

1.4
This Standard contains requirements for electrical features of valves and requirements for mechanical features of valves that affect their safe operation.

1.5
With respect to construction and tests of electrical features, the requirements of this Standard complement those of ANSI Z21.21/CSA 6.5.

1.6
Electrically operated damper actuators are evaluated to the requirements of CSA C22.2 No. 24.

1.7
This Standard does not contain requirements for mechanical and operational features that do not directly affect the safe operation of a valve.

1.8
This Standard does not apply to water valves of connection size larger than 2-inch pipe size or pressure rating above 1600 kPa (232 psi) for valve bodies of thermoplastic material.

1.9
The values given in SI units are the units of record for the purposes of this Standard. The values given in parentheses are for information and comparison only.

1.10
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 standard; “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 (nonmandatory) to define their application.

1 Scope

1.1 This standard applies to enclosures for electrical equipment intended to be installed and used in non-hazardous locations in accordance with the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, CSA C22.1, the provisions of the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70, and the provisions of Mexico's Electrical Installations, NOM-001-SEDE, as follows:

a)     Enclosures for indoor locations, Types 1, 2, 5, 12, 12K, and 13; and

b)     Enclosures for indoor or outdoor locations, Types 3, 3X, 3R, 3RX, 3S, 3SX, 4, 4X, 6, and 6P.

1.2 This standard covers additional environmental construction and performance requirements for enclosures. The general requirements for enclosures are contained in CSA C22.2 No. 94.1, UL 50, and NMX-J-235/1-ANCE (See Annex B, Ref. No. 10) or the end-use product standards that are to be used in conjunction with this standard.

1.3 This standard does not cover the requirements for protection of devices against conditions such as condensation, icing, corrosion, or contamination that may occur within the enclosure or that may enter via conduit or unsealed openings.

1.4 Where an individual product standard contains requirements that are at variance with those of this standard, the requirements of the individual product standard take precedence.

1.  Scope

1.1 

This Standard establishes steady-state voltage operating ranges at point of connection for AC power systems in Canada. It serves to provide guidance:

a) To national committees on utilization and control equipment for establishing standard ratings of such equipment on a basis coordinated with power system voltages;

b) To power system designers so that new systems will be designed to accommodate standard ratings of equipment and devices;

c) To power system operators and to electrical energy users for determining suitable voltage performance and the need for corrective measures, with respect to existing systems, to accommodate current designs of equipment and devices; and

d) Towards a uniform system of voltage selections in the country without any suggestion that each utility will supply every voltage listed.  The establishment of standards on this basis is aimed at future development towards more uniformity on a national basis.

This Standard includes nominal voltages and supply steady-state voltage ranges at point of connection under both normal and extreme operating conditions. 

This standard does not cover voltage operating ranges at utilization points. (See Clause 6 for details)

1.2

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 standard; “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.

1.1 Scope and object

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 (non-hazardous) 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 a-c voltage ratings above 1500 V, up to 15 kV.

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 full-voltage controllers using only solid state devices in the main circuit.
