  • SCOPE

    1 Scope

    1.1 These requirements cover household, industrial, and commercial sealing, wrapping, and marking equipment rated at 600 volts or less for use in unclassified locations in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70, such as laminators, label makers/applicators, stamping machines, taping machines, wrapping machines, shrink tunnels, bag sealers, bag tying machines, heat sealing irons, and vacuum packaging machines.

    1.2 These requirements also cover cord-connected units with an integral cigarette lighter connector assembly, or a direct current (DC) input jack for being powered from a separate Vehicle Battery Adapter.

    1.3 These requirements do not cover appliances and equipment that are covered by individual requirements that are separate from this standard, such as soldering irons, ink-jet printers, or photographic film printers.

    1.4 These requirements do not cover appliances and equipment that are intended for use in marine or aircraft.
