This harmonized standard was prepared by the Association of Standardization and Certification (ANCE), CSA Group, and Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL). The efforts and support of Technical Harmonization Committee 70/31 are gratefully acknowledged.
This standard is considered suitable for use for conformity assessment within the stated scope of the standard.
The present Mexican standard was developed by the CT CDI Control y Distribución Industrial from the Comité de Normalización de la Asociación de Normalización y Certificación, A. C., CONANCE, with the collaboration of the enclosures manufacturers and users.
This standard was reviewed by the CSA Integrated Committee on Enclosures, under the jurisdiction of the CSA Technical Committee on Industrial Products and the CSA Strategic Steering Committee on Requirements for Electrical Safety, and has been formally approved by the CSA 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.
This standard applies to enclosures for electrical equipment intended to be installed and used in nonhazardous locations in accordance with the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, CSA C22.1, the provisions of the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70, and the provisions of Mexico's Electrical Installations, NOM-001-SEDE, as follows:
a) Enclosures for indoor locations, Types 1, 2, 5, 12, 12K, and 13; and
b) Enclosures for indoor or outdoor locations, Types 3, 3X, 3R, 3RX, 3S, 3SX, 4, 4X, 6, and 6P.
This standard covers additional environmental construction and performance requirements for enclosures. The general requirements for enclosures are contained in CSA C22.2 No. 94.1, UL 50, and NMX-J-235/1-ANCE (See Annex B, Ref. No. 10) or the end-use product standards that are to be used in conjunction with this standard.
This standard does not cover the requirements for protection of devices against conditions such as condensation, icing, corrosion, or contamination that may occur within the enclosure or that may enter via conduit or unsealed openings.
Where an individual product standard contains requirements that are at variance with those of this standard, the requirements of the individual product standard take precedence.
