    Why would you look to google when you need to be looking in the NEC???
    He has told us that the product is not a listed product and the rules in the NEC do not permit the use of temporary lighting...

    That is not something that I would even think about doing while the conductor is live.

    Wait until Southwire sees that unauthorized use of their trademarked term:)
  5. Poll: That has only been a code requirement for two...

    That has only been a code requirement for two code cycles so the vast majority of the existing are probably not grouped.

    You are probably correct...it appears I did not read the question correctly.
  7. This is not a question about how to do electrical...

    This is not a question about how to do electrical work so I am approving the post.

    In general the NEC does not change between code editions. Sometimes there TIAs (tentative interim...

    First you have to know how to find out if the circuit is a MWBC. If you don't know how to find that out, then you should shut down the panel feed.:)
  9. Rules like this that has a "safety"...

    Rules like this that has a "safety" substantiation are almost never removed from the code.
    As far as the advantages of MWBCs, yes I fully agree, but because of the "handle tie" rule, many designers...
  10. If it is going to be easy to operate one breaker...

    If it is going to be easy to operate one breaker at a time, why have the rule. Just go back to the older codes when this was not a rule.

    The rule also as an "anti-green" effect. Because of...

    If you leave it as an ungrounded system and the installation is under the rules in the NEC, you will need a ground detector per 250.21(B).

    I have three comments.

    First, while it is very clear that the code requires the grounded conductor of a corner grounded system to be identified per the rules in Article 200, I have never seen...

    Why should that become a code rule placing a burden on the "real" electricians?

    The handle tie rule accomplished exactly the opposite of what it was intended to do. That is there are more...

    I don't see a need to add the word adjusted. You are required to adjust the "table" values to find the "ampacity" of those 9 current carrying conductors in the raceway. You may also be required to...

    Yes that is a hazard, but I have seen a lot more open service neutrals than I have open feeder neutrals.

    I agree that the NEC cannot require the utility supplier to change their installation.

    I have read that proposal and even had an e-mail discussion with Mike about the rule. We just don't agree on the issue.

    Augie,
    My problem is that the second building is electrically no different from a service and not only are parallel paths not prohibited at services, they are actually required by the code rules. ...

    Are we talking about a phone that is connected to some type of an alarm system or about a phone that a person would pick up and it would auto-dial 911?
    If it is the first then most 911 centers...

    I think you can make a case that having the receptacle below the counter top is a safety issue.

    I think that there is more than on brand of UL listed "pop-up" receptacles for kitchen counter use available now. Maybe it is time to prohibit any receptacles below the counter top.

    I always thought that too until I had a discussion about that on another forum. He told me to try it and I was very surprised how little force it takes to break a solvent welded PVC conduit joint. ...

    Tom,
    I agree that there are a lot of compounds out there that are much the same as the T&B product and that will do the same job, but those companies have not paid to have their compounds tested as...

    As Peter said, the outside metal underground water pipe and the service grounded conductor are actually connected in parallel. It is normal to have current on the GEC that is connected to the water...

    Panelboards and load centers are the same thing under the NEC. The NEC does not require that the enclosure be a listed item. I would have no issue with installing new "guts" in any existing...
