Description

Foreword

The Canadian Electrical Installation Standards™ (CEIS™) have been adopted from the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) National Electrical Installation Standards™ (NEIS™) in the United States. These NEIS™ have been reviewed by a Canadian technical committee assembled to Canadianize the standards by referencing the requirements of Canadian Standards Association (CSA) C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code, Part I (CEC, Part I) and the methods used for electrical installations across Canada and to find opportunities to harmonize with the United States, where possible.

CEIS™ are intended to improve communication and consistency among designers, engineers, general contractors, specifiers, purchasers, and suppliers of electrical construction services. They define a minimum baseline of quality and workmanship for installing electrical products and systems. CEIS™ are intended to be referenced in contract documents for electrical construction projects. For this standard, the following language is recommended:

General work practices for installing and maintaining busways should be in accordance with CECA 408-2011, Standard for Installing and Maintaining Busways.

Use of CEIS™ is voluntary, and the Canadian Electrical Contractors Association (CECA) assumes no obligation to or liability for users of this publication. Availability of a CEIS™ on any given subject does not preclude any member or non-member of CECA from specifying or using alternative construction methods permitted by applicable regulations. CEIS™ should be considered best practice standards for the electrical contracting industry.

Scope

Products and Applications Included
This standard describes the installation and maintenance procedures for feeder and plug-in busways and accessories rated 750 V ac or less and 100 A or more. It also covers periodic routine maintenance procedures for busways and special procedures used after adverse operating conditions such as short-circuit, ground fault, or immersion in water.

Products and Applications Excluded
This standard does not cover lighting busways, trolley busways, cablebus, metal-enclosed busways, or busways rated greater than 750 V ac.

General requirements for installing electrical products and systems are described in CECA 1, Standard for Good Workmanship in Electrical Construction. Other CECA Canadian Electrical Installation Standards™ (CEIS™) provide additional guidance for installing particular types of electrical products and systems.
A complete list of CECA CEIS™ is provided in Annex B.
