Can a 120vac outlet be mounted in its own box "within" a Fire Control Enclosure?
The 120vac outlet is used to power a low voltage (16vdc) transformer for a seperate, but intergal part of the Fire System.
I'll bite. Per the NEC yes if the receptacle is mounted to a box with the supply cable or conduit brought in through the KO in the side or back of the Fire System panel with a connector or fitting through both the panel and box KO with the locknut inside the receptacle box.
However there may be something in the fire system code that may prohibit this.
We install a seperate enclsure to house the outlet and transfomer.

Since the question was asked, I've had two different instances at two seperate sites. In both cases, the Electrical inspector's (State and City) had no issue or questions regarding it.
Thanks for the replies!!
