1 Scope

1.1 This Standard applies to nonmetallic or composite mechanical protection tubing (MPT), and nonmetallic, composite or metallic fittings, and clamps used for the support, routing and mechanical protection of conductors, wires, and cables. The MPT, fittings, and clamps are intended to be used to interconnect separate component assemblies or consoles of electrical devices, such as robotics, medical or X-ray equipment. The mechanical protection afforded the internal wiring contained within the tubing is considered equivalent to the protection provided by a type SJT flexible cord. Mechanical protection tubing (MPT) may be submitted without fittings, clamps, etc.

1.2 The MPT, fittings, and clamps covered by this Standard are not intended for use as a wiring method in accordance with NFPA 70, National Electrical Code (NEC), and CSA C22.1-12, Canadian Electrical Code (CE Code), Part I and NOM-001-SEDE Standard for Electrical Installations..

1.3 This Standard does not include standard trade sizes. The MPT, fittings, and clamps from different manufacturers are not interchangeable unless the combination of MPT, fittings, and clamps are determined to be in accordance with this Standard.

This part of IEC 61869 is a product family standard applicable to instrument transformers with digital output. The product standard is composed of IEC 61869-1 and IEC 61869-6, in addition to this standard and the relevant product specific standards in the IEC 61869 series (Part 7, Part 8, Part 12, Part 13, Part 14, and Part 15).

This standard defines requirements for digital communications of instrument transformer measurements. It is based on the IEC 61850 series, UCA international users group document Implementation guideline for
digital interface to instrument transformers using IEC 61850-9-2, and the relevant parts of IEC 60044-8 that are replaced by this standard. It includes additional improvements including the IEC 61588 network based time synchronization.
