UL Standard for Safety Sheathed Heating Elements
|Publication Date:||31 March 2015|
These requirements cover metal-sheathed heating elements intended for use in appliances and equipment that comply with the requirements for such appliances and equipment.
The main body of this standard covers requirements for sheathed heating elements rated 600 volts or less. Supplement SA covers cartridge-type sheathed heating elements that do not incorporate a bend in the sheath, rated between 601 and 15,000 V.
These requirements do not cover heating elements for use in equipment for use in hazardous locations as defined in the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70.
Wherever the terms heating element and element are used in these requirements, they are intended to mean a sheathed heating element as defined in 2.4.
