UL Standard for Safety Flexible Cord and Fixture Wire
|Publication Date:||15 October 1997|
Section 1 effective July 2, 1998
These requirements cover fixture wires, hoistway cables, and flexible
cords for use in accordance with the National Electrical Code.
An elevator cable that contains one or more optical-fiber members is
limited (see 8.6) to carrying optical energy that has been ruled not
hazardous to the human body.
These requirements do not cover armored cords or assemblies of flexible
cords or fixture wires with fittings or wiring devices of any sort (such as cord sets, power-supply cords, and Christmas-tree and decorative-lighting outfits, which are covered in requirements separate from this standard) nor do these requirements cover any type of wire or
cord for use at a potential higher than 600 V.
These requirements do not cover the optical or other performance of any
optical-fiber member or group of such members. See 8.6.
A product that contains features, characteristics, components,
materials, or systems new or different from those covered by the requirements in this standard, and that involves a risk of fire or of electric shock or injury to persons shall be evaluated using appropriate additional component and end-product requirements to maintain the level of safety as originally anticipated by the intent of this standard. A product whose features, characteristics, components, materials, or systems conflict with specific requirements or provisions of this standard does not comply with this standard. Revision of requirements shall be proposed and adopted in conformance with the methods employed for development, revision, and implementation of this standard.
