Page Count: 101
scope:

These requirements cover fixed and stationary power converters, power-converter systems, and accessories having a rated nominal input of 120, 120/240, or 240 V, alternating current and a nominal output of 60 V or less, direct current. Additionally, a power converter may have a rated nominal input of 12 - 60 V, direct current. These converters are intended for use within land vehicles where not directly exposed to outdoor iconditions and are intended to be employed in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70.

These requirements also cover fixed, stationary and portable power inverters and power-inverter systems having a dc input and a 120 or 240 V ac single phase output or up to 600Y/346V three-phase output. These inverters are intended for use within land vehicles where not directly exposed to outdoor conditions and are intended to be employed in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70.

These requirements also cover converters/inverters that are additionally intended to charge batteries. Batteries intended for use with these systems are lead acid batteries or lithium based batteries, and the batteries are intended to comply with applicable battery standards and be provided with protective measures for discharging and charging. These products are not intended to provide protection to these batteries unless specifically included and evaluated as part of a system.

Power converters supplied by AC circuits covered by Part I of this standard are intended for connection to established 15- and 20-A branch circuits within a recreational vehicle.

Power-inverters and converters supplied by DC circuits covered by Part I of this standard are intended for connection to a nominal 12 to 60 V dc battery supply.

Converters and inverters incorporating provisions for the connection of less than three line-voltage branch circuits are investigated under the requirements in Part I of this standard.

A power-converter or power-inverter system is intended for direct connection to a power-supply assembly. A system for connection of three or less line-voltage branch circuits, not including the main disconnect, may optionally be evaluated in accordance with the requirements in Part II of this standard, or with the applicable requirements for a Class CTL panelboard in the Standard for Panelboards, UL 67. Power converter systems and power inverter systems also employ circuitry as described in 1.4 and 1.5.

A power-converter or power-inverter system provided with more than three line-voltage branch circuits, not including the main disconnect, is investigated to the applicable requirements for a Class CTL panelboard in the Standard for Panelboards, UL 67.

Converters and inverters incorporating provisions for the connection of more than three line-voltage branch circuits are judged under the requirements in Part I of this standard and the applicable requirements for a Class CTL panelboard in accordance with the Standard for Panelboards, UL 67.

Each pole of a multiple-pole circuit breaker is a separate circuit.
