    I he is just questioning why he reads 115.7 volts instead of 114 if the primary voltage is 456.

    The alarm issue is under voltage not over voltage from what I can tell, and apparently it is...

    Usually rated for full 5 amps, but often they will say X amps (inductive), X amps (resistive) so type of load supplied needs consideration. Some contacts may have a tungsten filament rating as well.

    I'm not too concerned about the need for a fire extinguisher, but is funny.

    Have you measured voltage while normal loads are operating?

    If you have a poor connection you may find it faster to find it if you apply a temporary heavy load and monitor voltage, 1000-1500 watt...

    It would have to be over 1800 watts to need more then a 15 amp circuit. I don't know if I have ever seen one over 1800 watts.

    I agree, on the stop enabling them. If they are a decent person they...

    I agree, but with a wind turbine we could have a metal pole being used as a raceway for conductors - in that case I don't see an issue with using the pole as the EGC.

    That was for removal my comment was on repairing what was in the OP, probably just needs a little cleaning to get it back to about the condition it was in before this incident.

    I see a problem, but not going to waste my time on it either.

    It also doesn't effect how I intend to make my installs - they will still be 1-1/4 from the face of the framing member.

    But why make it more confusing with the word "wood" in the title of (A)? Why does 330.17 not include 300.4(B)? Seems about as pointless to me as having the word "wood" in the title of (A).
