    SQL Receptacle?

    I came across a reference to a SQL receptacle while doing some training. Anybody ever see one of these in the wild? Use one?

    Apparently 314.27(E) was written to accommodate this new receptacle type.

    I'm sure I just saw a photo of one of those in the 2017 NEC handbook a couple of days ago.

    Not sure where its at now - its not under receptacles or luminairies?

    Edit: There it is on page 24 under the definition of a receptacle.

    If these become a routine "thing", the name is going to annoy me. Being a former computer professional, SQL will always mean Structured Query Language.

    In the wild? No.

    The closest to that has been handling the demo unit that was passed through the room at the last continuing education class over a year ago.

    And my question is who is going to replace their ceiling fixtures on a regular basis?

    I'm sure I just saw a photo of one of those in the 2017 NEC handbook a couple of days ago.
    Hmmm, wonder how much it cost the manufacturer to get them included?
