Industrial Control Equipment
1.1 These requirements cover industrial control devices, and devices accessory thereto, for starting,
stopping, regulating, controlling, or protecting electric motors. These requirements also cover industrial
control devices or systems that store or process information and are provided with an output motor control
function(s). This equipment is for use in ordinary locations in accordance with the National Electrical Code,
1.2 These requirements cover devices rated 1500 volts or less. Industrial control equipment covered by
these requirements is intended for use in an ambient temperature of 0 – 40°C (32 – 104°F) unless
specifically indicated for use in other conditions.
