43Pumps and CompressorsNote-This group excludes pumps and compressors designed for use on individual types of equipment, such as engine fuel pumps, aircraft propeller feathering pumps, fork lift operating pumps, compressors for operating gun turrets, and vehicular brake system compressors. Also excluded are items specially designed as or for use on fuel dispensing equipment. The FSC indexes and structure will govern the classification of these items permitted classification in a single class only.

49Maintenance and Repair Shop EquipmentNote-Specialized equipment which is designed for automotive maintenance and repair, and which is also used for the maintenance and repair of nonautomotive vehicles or equipment, will be classified in Class 4910. Jigs, fixtures, and templates used in conjunction with maintenance and repair shop specialized equipment are classified in this group. However, jigs, fixtures, and templates used in conjunction with metalworking machinery are classified in Group 34.

58Communication, Detection, and Coherent Radiation EquipmentNote-Excludes oscillator items which should be classified in FSC 5955 or 5963; fiber optic items which should be classified in Group 60; electronic modules as defined under Class 5963; and electrical cable, cord and wire assemblies, harnesses and sets, related to FSG 58 equipment (see FSC 5995). In Group 58, more than in any other group, it frequently happens that the same name is listed as an index entry in each of several classes. In addition, that name may also appear as an entry in groups other than 58. Each such entry refers to a distinctly different part or assembly, even though the different items have the same name. The listing of the same names in two or more classes indicates that, in one form, the part or assembly covered by the name is applicable to the equipment covered by one class, and in another form is applicable to the equipment covered by another class. For example, the item name CODER, AUDIO FREQUENCY is applicable to two distinctly different assemblies, one of which has an application in cryptologic equipment, covered by Class 5810, and the other in radar equipment covered by Class 5840. Consequently the name CODER, AUDIO FREQUENCY is an entry under each of the two classes. When an item identification bears a name which is indexed under more than one class of Group 58, or in Group 58 and in some other group, the item will be classified in the same class as its next higher assembly in the manner described in the Federal Logistics Information System (FLIS) Procedures Manual, DoD 4100.39-M. Also excluded from this group are data transmission and communications equipment such as terminals, sensors and other devices designed for use with a configuration of ADPE.
59Electrical and Electronic Equipment ComponentsNote-Mounting hardware, included in classes of this group, includes such specially designed items as brackets, holders, retainers, etc. Excluded from classes in this group are such hardware items as screws (Class 5305), bolts (Class 5306), studs (Class 5307), washers (Class 5310), rivets (Class 5320), and other common items indexed to specific classes, other than in Group 59. The FSC indexes and structure will govern the classification of items used on or with mounting hardware cited above.
60Fiber Optics Materials, Components, Assemblies, and AccessoriesNote- Fiber Optics is a general term used to describe the function where optical energy (i.e., light/laser driven rays) is guided to another location through fiber(s). This group includes Fiber Optic items such as parts, materials and devices used for communications, data transmission, or illumination, Excludes Imaging devices under FSG 65 (medical); hand tools under FSG 51; and electrical, electronic and optical instruments under FSG 66 (instruments).
