    I have used the online White Book and the Code Correlation data base from some time and this new page is a great improvement. The code section search is very handy at times.

    I have no idea what they should be called. Extraneous bonding jumpers?

    Assuming that the switch leg is connected to a load and the load is still connected to its neutral, I would not expect this to be an issue caused by the use of a high impedance meter.

    I have no idea what those conductors are, but they are not EGCs.

    Many of the GFCI rules apply to cord and plug connected equipment because it is more likely that the EGC connection to the equipment could be comprised than when the equipment is hard wired.

    I don't have an older code book handy, but I think that the older codes required that the EGC be green, but stopped short of prohibiting the use of green for ungrounded conductors.

    There is nothing in the NEC, but there are enforceable voltage drop rules in the energy codes that have been adopted in some areas. A 12 amp load on #14 at 50' is approaching a 3% drop, but I am not...

    Once you have picked the fuse size, you just use the disconnect that the fuse will fit in. If you are using a 20 amp fuse, you would use a 30 amp disconnect. The common disconnect sizes are 30, 60,...

    I really don't understand why this and some similar rules are even in the code. The code does not apply to the manufacturer and I fail to see how a cord and plug connected portable device is...

    We have to be careful here...what the code calls a "common neutral" is not really how most use that term in the field. A neutral for a multiwire branch circuit is not a "common neutral" as far as...

    Maybe the cord wasn't but the plug on the cord was. That black stuff on the receptacle is part of the plug...it melted.
    In my opinion, this is a plug receptacle connection problem and not a wire...

    That happens with the enforcement of every subjective rule in the code book. How can any subjective rule be enforced without "making up a rule"?

    Many of us believe that Cat 5e cables are covered by Article 725 and not 800, but it doesn't make any difference as 725.24 says the same thing as 800.24.

    I submitted a public input to remove that requirement. There is no technical reason for it. The GEC in no more important for electrical safety than is the EGC.

    It is a subjective rule, and I would likely give it a red tag if there was less than 15" of space between the duct work and the box cover.

    I don't think any of the meters made in the last 10 or 15 years do that. I believe they all have ratchets that only let them spin so that they count up. Of course if they are back fed they don't...

    314.29 applies, but it is a subjective rule without out a specific space required. It would be my opinion that the box in question is in violation of 314.29.

    In my opinion the only code that has ever prohibited using a single conductor as both the EGC and the GEC was the 2011 code. The 2014 exception to 250.121 puts us back exactly where we were before...
