Pad-Mounted Equipment-Enclosure Integrity for Coastal Environments
|Publication Date:||15 May 2014|
This standard covers conformance tests and requirements for the integrity of above-grade pad-mounted enclosures intended for installation in coastal environments containing apparatus energized in excess of 600 V that may be exposed to the public including, but not limited to, the following types of equipment enclosures:
- Pad-mounted distribution transformers
- Pad-mounted capacitors or inductors
- Pad-mounted junction enclosures
- Pad-mounted metering equipment
- Pad-mounted switchgear
- Pad-mounted voltage regulators
This standard does not cover installations that are under the exclusive control of electric utilities and that are located in such a manner that access to the equipment is controlled exclusively by the utility.
The purpose of this standard is to describe the requirements for a comprehensive integrity system for padmounted enclosures providing long field life with minimum maintenance and positive safety features.
