The products of the Industrial Automation Control Products and Systems Section are identified in NEMA Standards Publication Nos. ICS 1, ICS 2, ICS 3, ICS 4, ICS 5, ICS 6, ICS 7, ICS 8, and ICS 10.
This publication is intended as a guideline only, and cannot cover all possible variations and combinations of specific equipment.

A preventive maintenance program is not intended to cover reconditioning or major repair, but should be designed to reveal, if possible, the need for such actions in time to prevent malfunctions or unsafe conditions during operation.
