(2) Other Class 1 Power Sources
To comply with the 1000 volt-ampere limitation of 725.41(A), the maximum output (VAmax) of power sources other than transformers shall be limited to 2500 volt-amperes, and the product of the maximum current (Imax) and maximum voltage (Vmax) shall not exceed 10,000 volt-amperes. These ratings shall be determined with any overcurrent-protective device bypassed.
VAmax is the maximum volt-ampere output after one minute of operation regardless of load and with overcurrent protection bypassed, if used. Current-limiting impedance shall not be bypassed when determining VAmax.
Imax is the maximum output current under any noncapacitive load, including short circuit, and with overcurrent protection bypassed, if used. Current-limiting impedance should not be bypassed when determining Imax. Where a current-limiting impedance, listed for the purpose or as part of a listed product, is used in combination with a stored energy source, for example, storage battery, to limit the output current, Imax limits apply after 5 seconds.
Vmax is the maximum output voltage regardless of load with rated input applied.
