    Lighting controls

    currently we have a building that has 7 contactors controlled by a single control circuit of 277V ( photocell time clock ) contactors have distinct purpose ( one low voltage lighting , one high voltage lighting and emergency exc. My question is , is this acceptable and where can i find related information in the code book?

    It's a design issue, not a code issue. There is no code reference. I remember working on a K Mart that had the lights on the entire sales floor controlled by one 200A contactor.
    If you don't think too good, don't think too much.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean. Look at 700.12(F).
