Draft Scope/Description:

1.1 These requirements apply to low-voltage AC power circuit breakers as follows:

a)     Stationary-mounted or drawout-mounted types,
b)     2-pole, 3-pole, and 4-pole constructions,
c)     Manually operated or power operated, and
d)     With or without electromechanical or solid-state type trip device.

Note: In the United States, with respect to the national installation codes, equipment operating at or below 1000V AC nominal, 1500 V DC is considered low-voltage equipment.  In Canada, with respect to national installation codes, equipment operating at or below 750 V is considered low voltage equipment.

1.2 These requirements apply to drawout-mounted type low-voltage AC integrally fused power circuit breakers, consisting of low-voltage AC power circuit breakers with integral fuses.

1.3 These requirements apply to low-voltage AC fuse draw-outs consisting of fuses in a drawout assembly intended to be connected in series with a low-voltage AC power circuit breaker to form a fused circuit breaker.

1.4 These requirements apply to general purpose type DC power circuit breakers.

 

1.5 These requirements apply to equipment intended for use in ordinary locations in accordance with Annex A, Ref. No. 1.

1.6 These requirements are intended to supplement and be used in conjunction with the:

a)     Standard for Low-Voltage AC Power Circuit Breakers Used In Enclosures, IEEE C37.13 (see Annex A, Ref. No.7),
b)     Standard for DC (3200 V and below) Power Circuit Breakers Used in Enclosures, IEEE C37.14 (see Annex A, Ref. No. 8),
c)     Standard for Metal-Enclosed Low-Voltage (1000 Vac and below, 3200 Vdc and below) Power Circuit Breaker Switchgear, IEEE C37.20.1 (see Annex A, Ref. No. 9),
d)     Test Procedures for Switchgear – Low-Voltage AC Power Circuit Breakers Used In Enclosures, ANSI C37.50 (see Annex A, Ref. No. 10), and
e)     Conformance Test Procedures for Switchgear – Metal-Enclosed Low-Voltage AC Power Circuit Breaker Switchgear Assemblies, ANSI C37.51 (see Annex A, Ref. No. 11).

1.7 These requirements apply to equipment rated 1000 V or less nominal, 1058 V maximum AC and 1500 V maximum DC.

1.8 This Standard does not apply to molded-case circuit breakers.

1.9 These circuit breakers are intended for installation in circuit breaker enclosures, switchboards (switchgear), panelboards, and the like. Drawout-mounted devices are intended for use with specific adapters or receiving equipment. The acceptability of the combination of a circuit breaker with respect to any overall enclosure will be determined when the complete product is considered.
