सीएसए SPE-1000 विकले जात सामान्य विद्युत उत्पादने एक-वेळ मंजुरी आदर्श कोड आहे, स्थापित, किंवा कॅनडा मध्ये ऑपरेट आणि कॅनेडियन विद्युत कोड आवश्यकता पालन नाही. सानुकूल अंगभूत आहेत उत्पादने, सुधारित, किंवा जगाच्या इतर भागांमध्ये हा निकष फिट शकते आयात. This program is only valid for the Canadian market and allows for up to 500 units, मॉडेल प्रति, per Inspection Body (आयबी), per year This model code addresses the product construction, खुणा, and test requirements and is not meant to replace full certification. Special Inspections to SPE-1000 are only performed on a complete systems or subassemblies (म्हणजे. control panels) and cannot be performed on a component (म्हणजे. switch or relay). As per Canadian regulations, Special Inspections should only be performed by Inspection Bodies who are accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC)and authorized to label the products.
Products within the CSA SPE-1000 scope:
Industrial Control Panels, Automated manufacturing, Semiconductor fabrication, Luminaires, Switchboards, Robotics, Heating and Cooling, Generators, Distribution Systems, any Mobile Equipment that have electrical components, आणि अधिक.
Examples of Tests performed:
Based on the construction, one of main mandatory tests required for every electrical product within SPE-1000, is the Dielectric Strength Test, also known as Hi-pot test. For equipment rated 250vac or less, 1000 Vac Test voltage is applied to the product for one minute, without a breakdown between live parts and exposed non-current carrying metal parts and between live parts and accessible extra low voltage secondary circuits. The other test that can be performed on the product are Temperature test, Leakage current test, Strain Relief test and Flame test. If the unit is installed outdoor, it will also have to be tested for a Rain test for a duration of 90 मिनिटे.
Special Inspection is the way to go if:
- Product needs quick approvals
- For limited quantities or batches
- Product has been “Red Tagged"
- प्रमाणपत्र व्यावहारिक नाही,
- Product has already been shipped and/or installed
- Testing the market and may not continue production
- Modifying already certified products
If the above scenarios sound familiar, you may need an SPE-1000!
