Draft Scope/Description:

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.
