1.1.1 Equipment covered by this Standard
This Standard applies to UNINTERRUPTIBLE POWER SYSTEMS (ups). The primary function of the us for this Standard is to ensure continuity of an alternating power source. The UNINTERRUPTIBLE POWER SYSTEM may also serve to improve the quality of the power source by keeping it within specified characteristics. This Standard is applicable to movable, stationary, fixed, and built-in uis for distribution systems up to 600 V
a.c. This equipment is designed to be installed in accordance with the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, CSA C22.1, or the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, and, unless otherwise identified, the Standard for the Protection of Electronic Computer Data-Processing Equipment, ANSI/NFPA 75.
This Standard specifies requirements intended to ensure safety for the OPERATOR and, where specifically stated, for SERVICE PERSONNEL.
This Standard is intended to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons from installed equipment, both as a single unit or as a system of interconnected units, subject to installing, operating, and maintaining the equipment in the manner prescribed by the manufacturer.

Wherever there is a conflict between the requirements of this Standard and the AD, the requirements of this Standard will prevail.
Engine-driven d.c. power generators intended to provide backup power for the battery supply circuit of ui’s units are investigated for compliance with the requirements of UL 2200, and CSA C22.2 No. 100.
UPS that employ hospital grade components identified by the markings “Hospital Only”, “Hospital Grade”, or a green dot on the BODY of the component, or otherwise implying suitability for medical use, are evaluated to the requirements of this Standard and CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 60601 -1/UL 60601 -1.
