ASME A17.5 pdf download Elevator and escalator electrical equipment
The requirements of this Standard apply to the following electrical equipment for elevators, escalators,moving walks, dumbwaiters, material lifts, and elevating devices for persons with physical disabilities(platform lifts and stairway chairlifts):
(b)motion controllers;(coperation controllers;(d) operating devices; and
(e) all other electrical equipment not listed/certified and labelled/marked according to another product
safety standard or code.
The equipment specified in this Standard is intended for installation in accordance with the CanadianElectrical Code, Part l (CSA C22.1) and the National Electrical Code(NFPA 70), whichever is applicable.Note: Controllers, i.e.,motion, motor, and operation controllers, are defined in CSA B44 and ASMEA17.1.
The electrical equipment covered by this Standard is intended
(a) to be connected to supply circuits at a nominal system voltage of 600 V or less;(b)for internal voltages that are not more than 15oo v; and
(c) for use in non-hazardous locations in accordance with the rules of the applicable electrical codes.
The object of this Standard is to reduce the risk of injury to persons and damage to property from fire andelectrical shock by presenting requirements for the proper design, the good construction, and the highquality of work of the equipment listed in Clause 1.1.
This Standard does not apply to devices that are rated for connection to extra-ow-voltage Class 2 supplycircuits as defined in the applicable electrical code.
Note: Extra-low-voltage circuits are circuits that have a voltage of not more than 30 v rms or 42.4 V peak.1.5
In CSA Standards,” shallmis used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged tosatisfy in order to comply with the standard; ” should” is used to express a recommendation or that whichis advised but not required; “may”is used to express an option or that which is permissible within thelimits of the standard; and ” can” is used to express possibility or capability. Notes accompanying clausesdo not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause isto separate from the text explanatory or informative material. Notes to tables and figures are consideredpart of the table or figure and may be written as requirements. Annexes are designated normative
(mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
SI (metric) units are the primary units of measure in this Standard. The yard/pound (imperial) units in the
text have been directly (soft) converted from the SI units.
