    A duplex in a horizontal box right on the dividing line could be considered to have one receptacle IN each space. :)

    I am imagining an "occupancy sensor" for an outdoor sign that only lights it up when there is someone around to see it. The range needed might be difficult, and the results startling. :angel:

    Since both receptacles of a duplex are in the same place, some will argue that it is only one receptacle outlet. (The idea being that the word must be there for a reason.

    Because the secondary resonant magnetic circuit is pumped by a saturated core, harmonics can come through at a higher amplitude than the fundamental.

    680.25(B) [2011] is fairly clear about the insulated EGC part, but there is some controversy about the mention of one end being at the service panel. If there is a subpanel between the pool panel and...

    Oh, no! is it not that simple. You can still have the discussion in their equivalent of MH about whether you mount it with one ground up and one ground down or one ground down and one ground up. :)

    But, even though the NEC reason behind it no longer exists, we are still required to follow labelling instructions, right?

    The Kable wires are insulated (clear plastic). There are some bridging parts that appear to be uninsulated though.

    On the other hand, I do not see a prohibition against putting in an AFCI breaker on a circuit and leaving for existing two wire receptacles in place.

    Since the Kable (TM) brand of low voltage lighting uses two open (but insulated) conductors which are bridged by the individual fixtures, I can see two potential problems.

    For me the clue that resolves the apparent two-breaker vs. one two pole breaker contradiction comes in the fact that the sentence refers to the disconnect being sized to the rated load.

    The breaker needs its own neutral pigtail to get power for its electronics.
    Whether it makes a difference to AFCI sensitivity whether you connect the load neutral to the breaker I do not know. I...

    If the X0 is floated, how can current get back to it via the case?
    Or do you mean that the neutral is connected to the X0 but not bonded to EGC at the transformer?
