b) Type 1A rated up to 8.3 A and from 30 V to 600 V ac or dc, or both;

c) Type 1B rated from 8.3 A up to 200 A and up to 30 V rms (42 V peak);

d) Type 2 rated from 8.3 A up to 31 A and from 30 V to 600 V ac or dc, or both;

e) Type 3 rated from 31 A up to 200 A and from 30 V to 600 V ac or dc, or both;

f) Type 4 rated from more than 200 A up to and including 1000 A, and up to 600 V ac or dc; and

g) Type 5 rated less than 31 A and from over 600 V up to and including 6000 V ac or dc, or both.

Note: As there is a great variety of applications for products covered by this Standard, their use should be evaluated with the design and construction of the end use application and cannot be solely judged by the requirements of this Standard.

This Standard does not apply to

a) appliance plugs covered in CSA C22.2 No. 57;

b) general use receptacles, attachment plugs, and similar wiring devices covered in CSA C22.2 No. 42;

c) industrial type, special use attachment plugs, receptacles, equipment power inlets and outlets, and connectors covered in CSA C22.2 No. 182.1; or

d) industrial locking type attachment plugs, receptacles, and connectors covered in CSA C22.2 No. 182.2.

attachment plugs, receptacles, and similar wiring devices intended for use in hazardous locations covered in this standard shall also meet the requirements of CSA C22.2 No. 159 as applicable.

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.
