1 Scope

1.1

This Standard applies to newly produced pool heaters (see Clause 3, Definitions), hereinafter referred to as pool heaters or appliances, constructed entirely of new, unused parts and materials, for heating non-potable water stored at atmospheric pressure, such as water in swimming pools, spas, hot tubs and similar applications:

a)    for use with natural gas;

b)    for use with manufactured gas;

c)    for use with mixed gas;

d)    for use with liquefied petroleum gases;

e)    for use with LP gas-air mixtures;

f)     for installation in applications intended to temper the entire flow of the primary circulating pool loop water prior to re-entering the pool; and

g)    for installation in applications for pool heaters intended to temper a portion of the primary circulating loop water diverted through the pool heater by mechanical means, and then re-enter and mix with the primary circulating loop water prior to entering the pool.

1.2

This Standard also applies to pool heaters intended for installation at a distance less than 5 ft (1.52 m) from the inside surface of a pool or spa, hereinafter referred to as close proximity heaters (see Clause 3).

1.3

This Standard also applies to pool heaters for indoor installation with draft hoods which are factory equipped with automatic vent damper devices (see Clause 3, Definitions), hereinafter referred to as vent damper devices.

1.4

This Standard also applies to pool heaters of other than the direct vent type which are factory equipped with electrically operated or mechanically actuated automatic flue damper devices (see Clause 3, Definitions), hereinafter referred to as flue damper devices.

1.5

If a value for measurement as given in this Standard is followed by an equivalent value in other units, the first stated value is to be regarded as the specification.

1.6

All references to psi throughout this Standard are to be considered gage pressure unless otherwise specified.

1.7

Clause 7 contains provisions that are unique to the United States

1.8

Clause 8 contains provisions that are unique to Canada.

1.9

Special construction provisions applicable to a water heater designed for use with an optional listed conversion kit are outlined under Annex D.

1.10

Clause 2, Reference publications, contains a list of standards specifically referenced in this Standard, and sources from which these reference standards may be obtained.

1.11

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user shall 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. Scope

1.1

This Standard applies to gas hose connectors (See Clause 3, Definitions), hereinafter referred to as connectors. They are conduits for conveying gas and depend for gas-tightness on the wall structure of the hose material. Such connectors are:

newly produced and constructed entirely of new, unused parts, and materials; and

equipped with a fitting at each end provided with standard taper pipe threads.

1.2

Connectors covered by this Standard are intended for:

connection of portable outdoor gas-fired appliances to the gas supply piping;

use in unconcealed outdoor locations;

use only in locations where they will not be likely to be subject to excessive temperatures [above 200°F (93.5 °C)];

use with natural gas , manufactured gas, mixed gases, propane and LP gas-air mixtures; and

use on gas piping systems having fuel gas pressures not in excess of 1/2 psi (3.45 kPa).

1.3

All references to psi throughout this Standard are to be considered gauge pressure unless otherwise specified.

1.4

Annex A contains provisions that are unique to Canada.

1.5

Clause 2 contains a list of standards specifically referenced in this Standard and sources from which these reference standards may be obtained.

1.6

This Standard contains SI (Metric) equivalents to the yard/pound quantities, the purpose being to allow the Standard to be used in SI (Metric) units. (IEEE/ASTM-SI-10 is used as a guide in making metric conversion from yard/pound quantities.) If a value for a measurement and an equivalent value in other units, the first stated is to be regarded as the requirement. The given equivalent value may be approximate. If a value for a measurement and an equivalent value in other units, are both specified as a quoted marking requirement, the first stated unit, or both, shall be provided.

1.7

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user shall 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 Scope

1.1 

This Standard Document outlines a PV module testing protocol for quality assurance programs. It is intended to be used by banks, developers, independent engineers, and manufacturers as a publicly available document reflecting industry best practices for module quality assurance and reliability testing. This Document is intended to be a stand-alone document that does not interact with other safety or qualification standards such as the UL 1703, IEC 61730, and IEC 61215. It is possible that some testing in this Document might duplicate testing in the UL 1703, IEC 61730, and IEC 61215 safety and qualification standards. However, market practices as they currently exist might require independent quality assurance and reliability testing and due diligence by parties not associated with the safety and qualification testing.

1.2 

The individual test legs in the protocol of this Document are derived from existing tests in safety, qualification, and reliability testing described in existing IEC documents and the NREL Photovoltaic Module Qualification Plus Testing, and may be updated over time as new test legs and protocols are validated and published. The test legs in this Document are designed to reproduce failures that have been observed in the field or potentially could be seen in the field. Test leg durations have been carefully considered to avoid accumulated exposures greater than those that might be reasonably expected in actual deployment scenarios. This Document is intended to be used across PV module technology types.

1.3 

This document may be potentially used for the:

a) evaluation of comparative reliability among different module manufacturers or designs;

b) evaluation of comparative reliability among different module bills of materials (BOMs);

c) diagnosis of potential problems with new module manufacturing equipment or facilities through comparison with equipment and facilities that are known to yield expected results; and

d) provision of data for ongoing quality monitoring programs after product validation.

1.4

Although the test protocol laid out in this document has been designed to reproduce failures that have been seen in the field or potentially could be seen in the field, the test protocol is not intended for a service lifetime prediction study. At the time of publication of this Document, there is no consensus in the PV community on how the results of the specific IEC tests or test sequences, which the protocol in this document uses as building blocks, relate quantitatively to the acceleration factors of different field failure modes. As such, efforts to derive field degradation rates from the lab test results may lead to incorrect conclusions.
