This article covers "Metal-Clad Cable," as listed by UL under that heading in the Guide Card information [see discussion at 110.3(B) for details]. This section defines the type of cable assemblies covered by this article (Fig. 330-1). The definition for metal-clad cable—"a factory assembly of one or more insulated circuit conductors with or without optical fiber members enclosed in an armor of interlocking metal tape, or a smooth or corrugated tube"—makes this category the successor to former Type ALS and Type CS cables.
