The present Mexican standard was developed by the CT 23 Electrical Accessories (Wiring Devices) from the Comité de Normalización de la Asociación de Normalización y Certificación, A.C., CONANCE, with the collaboration of the electrical manufacturers and users.
This standard was reviewed by the CSA Subcommittee on ICCM01-Nonmetallic Conduit, Tubing and Fittings under the jurisdiction of the CSA Technical Committee on Wiring Products and the CSA Strategic Steering Committee on Requirements for Electrical Safety, and has been formally approved by the Technical Committee. This standard has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
These requirements cover liquid-tight flexible nonmetallic conduit in the 3/8 – 4 (12 – 103) trade sizes of Type LFNC-A (Layered), Type LFNC-B (Integral), and Type LFNC-C (Corrugated) constructions. The conduit is intended for installation in accordance with the National Electrical Code (NEC), the CE Code, Part 1, and the Mexican Electrical Code, NOM-001-SEDE. The values in parentheses are metric trade designators of conduit.
Conduit covered by this Standard is intended for use in wet, dry, or oily locations at a maximum of 60°C (140°F), unless otherwise marked. (See Section 6.)
Fittings for liquid-tight flexible nonmetallic conduit are covered in UL 514B, CSA C22.2 No. 18.3, or NMX-J-017-ANCE.
