1.1 These requirements cover electrically operated general purpose and safety valves rated 600 volts or less and intended for the control of the fluids specified in 1.2. Electrically operated valves, other than automotive fuel valves, covered by these requirements are intended to be used in other than hazardous locations as defined in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70.
1.2 Electrically operated valves for use in dispensing devices are intended for use with one or more of the following:
a) Gasoline formulated in accordance with the Standard Specification for Automotive Spark Ignition Fuel, ANSI/ASTM D4814;
b) Gasoline/ethanol blends with nominal ethanol concentrations up to 25 percent ethanol (E25), consisting of gasoline formulated in accordance with the Standard Specification for Automotive Spark Ignition Fuel, ANSI/ASTM D4814, when blended with denatured fuel ethanol formulated to be consistent with the Standard Specification for Denatured Fuel Ethanol for Blending With Gasoline For Use as Automotive Spark Ignition Engine Fuel, ANSI/ASTM D4806; or
c) Gasoline/ethanol blends with nominal ethanol concentrations above 25 percent formulated in accordance with the Standard Specification in item (b) or formulated in accordance with the Standard Specification for Ethanol Fuel Blends for Flexible-Fuel Automotive Spark Ignition Engines, ANSI/ASTM D5798, as applicable.
1.3 These requirements cover valves whose coils are powered by a Class 2 (low-voltage) source. Valves incorporating a high-voltage transformer with a low-voltage secondary as an integral part of the valve assembly, are also covered by these requirements.
1.4 These requirements do not cover valves for use with fluids other than as specified in 1.2.
1.5 These requirements do not cover valves employing electrical parts, including coils, switch contacts and resistance elements, located in the flammable gas containing compartment of a valve. Valves constructed as such shall comply with the requirements in the Standard for Intrinsically Safe Apparatus and Associated Apparatus for Use in Class I, II, and III, Division 1, Hazardous (Classified) Locations, UL 913.
