3 Definitions
3.1 For the purpose of these requirements, the following definitions apply.
3.2 CONDENSATE PUMP – A pump intended for use with equipment to facilitate the removal of watercondensate.
3.3 CORD-CONNECTED PUMP – A pump intended to be connected to a branch circuit supply bymeans of flexible cord and an attachment plug.
3.4 DEEP-WELL PUMP – A permanently installed, submersible or nonsubmersible pump intended tobe used for pumping water from a well for irrigation and other agricultural purposes; for domestic,municipal, and industrial water supplies; and the like.
3.5 EFFLUENT PUMP- A pump intended to pump liquid forms of waste mixed with water.3.6 ENCLOSURE -That part of the product that:
a) Renders inaccessible all or any parts of the equipment that may otherwise present a risk ofelectric shock and/or
b) Retards propagation of flame initiated by electrical disturbances occurring within.
3.7 FIELD-WIRINGTERMINAL – A terminal to which power supply (including equipment grounding) orcontrol connection will be made in the field when the product is installed as intended. lf the wire to beconnected to the terminal is provided as part of the unit,and a pressure terminal, connector, solderinglug, soldered loop, crimped eyelet, or other means for making the connection is factory-assembled tothe wire, it is not a field-wiring terminal.
3.8 FOUNTAIN PUMP – A pump intended for use with a fountain.
3.8.1 INDUSTRIAL USE – Pumps intended for industrial use are those with constructions meeting thefollowing parameters:
a) Are intended to be field installed in accordance with Article 430 of ANSI/NFPA 70,NationalElectrical Code (NEC);
b) Are intended for three-phase supply sources; and
c) Where the motor overtemperature protection required by Part Ill of Article 430 of the NEC isintended to be provided by a separate overload device or control.
