    1 Scope

    1.1 These requirements cover indoor use cord and plug connected, relocatable power taps (RPT) rated 250 V AC or less and 20 Amperes or less. A RPT may include an integral Class 2 power supply with an integral lead and/or connector(s) output. RPT are for use as a movable power supply connection for cord and plug connected electrical utilization equipment in accordance with the National Electric Code, NFPA 70.

    1.1.1 A cord and plug connected product as described in 1.1 with less than three receptacle outlets and provided with a Luminaire is covered under the Standard for Portable Electric Luminaires, UL 153.

    1.2 A cord and plug connected product as described in 1.1 with less than three receptacle outlets that employs an electromagnetic interference filter is covered under the Standard for Electromagnetic Interference Filters, UL 1283.

    1.3 A cord and plug connected product as described in 1.1 with less than three receptacle outlets that employs a surge protective device (SPD) is covered under the Standard for Surge Protective Devices, UL 1449.

    1.4 A cord and plug connected product as described in 1.1 that employs ground-fault protection is covered under the requirements for portable GFCIs in the Standard for Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupters, UL 943.

    1.5 This standard does not cover RPT intended for use with medical equipment.

    1.6 A RPT may employ an integral cord reel for the supply cord and attachment plug. A cord reel provided with pull out receptacle outlets or cord connectors is covered under the Standard for Cord Reels, UL 355.

    1.7 These requirements do not cover RPT’s with work surfaces or surfaces intended to support weight loads other than as specified in 3.11 for the storage of hand-held electronic devices and charging equipment such as a cell phone, cell phone charger and the like.

    1.8 These requirements cover RPT’s provided with isolated secondary circuits.

    1.9 These requirements cover RPT’s provided with batteries located in isolated secondary circuits. See UL 1363 Supplement sb – Relocatable Power Taps Incorporating Batteries.

    1.10 A product that has a battery backup feature or other uninterruptible power supply equipment located in the Primary Circuit shall comply with the applicable requirements in the Standard for Uninterruptible Power Supply Equipment, UL 1778.

    1.11 A RPT with three or more receptacle outlets may employ a Light Emitting Diode (LED) Luminaire.
