    1 Scope

    1.1 This Standard applies to direct plug-in nightlights not exceeding 10 W input, for indoor use only, in non-hazardous locations and intended to be used in accordance with the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, CSA C22.1, and the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70. Light source types include incandescent candelabra base lamps, non-replaceable lamps, [fluorescent, neon, or light-emitting diode (LED) type] or electroluminescent panels.

    1.2 These requirements cover direct plug in nightlights for insertion into a parallel slot receptacle rated 125 volts maximum.

    1.3 These requirements do not cover:

    (a) cord-connected luminaires;

    (b) nightlights with more than one receptacle;

    (c) direct plug-in devices with other primary functions, such as room deodorizers, insect repellers, or rechargeable flashlights; or

    (d) direct plug-in devices utilizing plasma light.
