CSA C22.1HB-09

CE code handbook, an explanation of rules of the canadian electrical code, part 1

Published in 2009 by Canadian Standards Association (CSA). This Handbook provides background information on the reasons behind the requirements in the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, and gives an explanation of each Rule in plain, easy-to-understand language. The Handbook is intended to provide a clearer understanding of the safety requirements of the Code.

The content of this Handbook is not meant to form a code of mandatory requirements. The mandatory language (“shall”) that is used in the CE Code, Part I, has not been used here. Care has been taken to ensure that the intent of the Code Rules is clear to the users of the Handbook. However, users of the Handbook must not under any circumstances rely on it to determine the current requirements of the Code. As always, reference

must be made to the Code itself and any local amendments. CSA does not assume responsibility for any errors or omissions resulting from the information contained in this Handbook.

The Rules in the CE Code, Part I, are divided into two groups. Sections 0 to 16 and 26 are considered General Sections, and the other Sections supplement or amend those General Sections. Therefore a requirement in the supplementary Sections takes precedence over a general requirement. For example, * Rule 12-1008 requires three threads to be engaged when making a threaded connection, whereas Rule 18-106 requires five threads to be engaged when making a threaded connection in a Class I, Zone 1 area. * Section 4 permits the use of aluminum conductors, but Rule 32-100 does not allow aluminum conductors to be used in fire alarm systems.

CIE 184:2009

Indoor Daylight Illuminants

This standard was published by CIE (Commission Internationale de L’Eclairage; International Committee for Lighting) in January 2009, and has 22 pages.

The CIE recommended daylight illuminants in 1967. These daylight illuminants contained ultraviolet radiation in proportions as found in natural outdoor daylight. Indoors this daylight is filtered by the transmission of the window glass; therefore it became necessary to define spectral power distributions also for the indoor daylight phases. The TC recommends adoption of two indoor daylight illuminants ID50 and ID65, that correspond to the phases of daylight of about 5000 K and 6500 K

The publication is written in English, with a short summary in French and German. It consists of 22 pages with 5 figures and 2 tables. correlated colour temperature. Tables of the spectra are provided at 5 nm intervals from 300 nm to 780 nm, along with the rationale for their development and detailed comparison with existing daylight illuminants.

CGA S-1.3, 8th edition

Pressure Relief Device Standards-Part 3-Stationary Storage Containers for Compressed Gases

This 35 page standard was published by Compressed Gas Association (CGA) in December 2008.

The purpose of this standard is to complement the requirements of various regulations, codes, standards, or specifications applicable to storage containers for compressed gases. In case of conflict, the requirements of the regulations, codes, standards, or specifications of the authorities having jurisdiction over such containers shall apply. It is recommended that containers fabricated after December 31, 1995, use PRDs that meet the requirements of this edition of CGA S-1.3.
