    NEC Art 393, Problematic?

    Suspended ceiling tiles are often already a PITA the put back in due to improperly installed support wires, fixtures, fixture whips, etc. With the newer systems we are seeing coming out, including a new article in the NEC (Art 393) does anyone have any experience putting these systems in?

    I can just see this making it more problematic putting the tiles in due to the amount of LV components that are attached directly to the grid.

    Thoughts?

    Gads!

    I gotta pay more attention, I didn’t even know about that new article.

    I'd like to see the support wire reduced, too. Since the new LED lay ins are so light weight.
