This Standard applies to temperature-indicating and -regulating equipment* for voltages up to and including 600 V between conductors and intended for general household and industrial use in nonhazardous locations, in accordance with the Rules of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I (CEC, Part I).
* For convenience, the shorter term equipment is sometimes used in this Standard.
This Standard applies to electrical control equipment for air conditioning, heating, lighting, cooling, refrigeration, cooking appliances, safety controls, and other similar appliance controls.
This Standard does not apply to dimmers and extra-low-voltage equipment other than safety controls and room thermostats with heat anticipators.
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.
