UL 2238:2019 Cable Assemblies and Fittings for Industrial Control and Signal Distribution.
1.1 These requirements cover devices intended for inter-connection of equipment, sensors, and actuators in remote-control, signaling, and power-limited circuits. Included are cable assemblies and fittings, feeder-tap cable systems, feed-through connectors, multi-outlet fittings, panel-mount fittings, and splitters. These devices are not intended for disconnect means. These devices are rated not more than 60 A and not more than 600 V.
1.2 This standard also contains Supplement SA — Short Circuit Current Rated (SCCR) Cable Assemblies and Fittings for Industrial Control and Signal Distribution.
1.3 Unless otherwise noted, all devices are intended for indoor use.
1.4 These devices are for use on alternating current, direct current, or both.
1.5 The cable assembly fittings and panel-mount fittings are intended to be installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s installation instructions. The cable assembly fittings are intended to be assembled or molded on flexible cord.
1.6 Each type of device covered by this standard is described in generic terms where practicable. Reference to use locations identified in the National Electrical Code or specific applications are omitted unless they are required for the identification of the device type. Such additional information is included in the applicable standards for the end-use product involved or in markings for the device.
1.7 This standard does not cover male-to-male cable assemblies with the exception of Class 2 circuits.
