This is the fourth edition of C22.2 No. 13, Transformers for oil- or gas-burner ignition equipment, one of a series of Standards issued by CSA Group under Part II of the Canadian Electrical Code. It supersedes the previous editions published in 1962, 1954, and 1935. Previous editions of this Standard also included requirements for transformers for luminous-tube signs and cold-cathode interior lighting. These products are now covered by CSA C22.2 No. 255, Neon transformers and power supplies.
