Spanish term or phrase: canalización fija
This is a warning statement for the installation of a machine - from Spain.
The entire phrase is, "no está prevista para ser connectada a una canalización fija"
I would like to know if my assumption is correct, or what your thoughts are.
I think it means, "It is not intended to be connected to a fixed wiring"
Thank you for your help!

fixed installation

CANALIZACIÓN FIJA. Canalización instalada en forma inamovible, que no puede ser desplazada

A fixed installation means one or several types of apparatus that - when installed - is intended for permanent use at a pre-defined location.

2004/108/EC, Fixed Installations, and equipment intended for them

2004/108/EC is the 2nd Edition of the EMC Directive, and one of its major differences from the first edition 89/336/EEC is that it includes specific requirements for what it calls “Fixed Installations”, and for equipment that is sold directly for them (and not available to just anyone).

Fixed installations are defined in 2004/108 as: “A particular combination of several types of apparatus and, where applicable, other devices, which are assembled, installed and intended to be used permanently at a predefined location.” This covers all installations from the smallest residential electrical installations through hotels, public buildings, entertainment venues and factories to national infrastructure (e.g. electrical, telephone, road and railway networks) and includes all commercial and industrial installations.
