|Proposal for New Ratings
In January 1999 Amerace proposed that additional ratings be added to C22.2 No. 180. Specifically, we proposed 4 new ratings, 65W, 150W, 300W and 500W, all at 6,6/6,6. The intent was to provide a full range of ratings for almost any available fixture or other load such as signs. In response CSA International (formerly CSA) reactivated the Subcommittee on Underground Transformers for Airport Runway Lighting with the intent of considering Amerace's proposal. The proposal was circulated on November 4, 1999. To review the proposal, click.
As of January 25, 2000, we were informed that no comments were received from the subcommittee by the deadline of December 2, 1999, so the proposal was deemed acceptable.
The revised standard was published September 6, 2000. Amerace proceeded with an RFQ to CSA International for certification of the 65W, 150W, 200W and 500W transformers. Unfortunately, the estimated price for these approvals was far in excess of what can be recovered by possible sales. Indeed, we consider the amount totally unreasonable, to the point where any future certification risks being non-viable.
