This is the first edition of CSA C22.2 No. 267, Armoured segmented power and communication assembly (ASPCA). It is part of a series of Standards issued by the Canadian Standards Association under the Canadian Electrical Code, Part II.
For general information on the Standards of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part II, see the preface to CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 0, General Requirements - Canadian Electrical Code, Part II.
This Standard is considered suitable for use for conformity assessment within the stated scope of the Standard.
This Standard specifies the construction and testing of armoured segmented power and communication assembly (ASPCA) composite cable systems suitable for emergency applications rated up to 600 V.
Note: Systems can include power conductors, optical fibers, coaxial cables and fittings (connectors and boxes), intended for installation in accordance with the rules of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, on systems having nominal voltages of 600 V or less.
This Standard applies to fire-resistant-rated, armoured, thermally-insulated, strain-relieved, multi-conductor, segmented, power and communications cable systems, rated up to 600 V and intended for use in industrial and commercial applications.
In CSA standards, 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.
