    Re: Outlets Per Breaker

    Somebody should probably mention that Charlie.

    The code minimum is sort of meant for convenience outlets where there aren't really any planned loads.

        Let's see if we can come to a conclusion pertaining to the number of receptacle outlets allowed on a branch circuit. There is NO limit for the number of recept outlets supplied by general purpose or small appliance branch circuits installed in DWELLING UNITS. For OTHER than dwelling units, the calculated load for receptacle outlets is 180 volt-amperes for each recept on a single yoke or strap.

            John,
            It may have taken 4 pages of posts but I think that you've summed it up very well.

              ok ok ok

              Someone look up in the code where if you run a 20 amp circuit and have one device attached. The device must be rated equal to atleast the overcurrent (breaker) rating.

              Now that's in the code. Here is states 1 outlet.

              Great discussion though.

                I'm not sure what your question is Bigjohn but I think the answer is in 210.23(A) through (D).

                Edit: left out an important word.

                  I see what your question is.

                  210.21.(B)(1) Single Receptacle on an Individual Branch Circuit. A single receceptacle installed on an individual branch circuit shall have an ampere rating not less than that of the branch circuit.

                    Big john,

                    you said in your post:

                    a 20 amp circuit and have one device attached
                    this could be one 15 amp duplex receptacle. As Physis had stated only a single receptacle would be required to be rated for 20 amps. A 15 amp duplex would also satisfy this section.

                      Physis,

                      Other than dwellings 13 recpts. on a 20a circuit. That's why this Forum is so Great,I started in this trade in 1968 and never left it,and now in 2005 I just find out,13 recpts. on a 20a circuit.

                        Frank, this forum is so definately indeed a great place.

                        I've brought up a recent situation where I somehow became responsible (I was never actually responsible) to sort of bring a commercial property occupant up to speed on his code compliance. I don't really do much commercial either.

                        I was rather amazed at how prepared and informed I was to deal with something like this. This web site and two books, one, the 2002 NEC, is my only source of knowledge.

                        This is most certaily a great place. :cool:

                            Physis,

                            The thing of it is all I do is comm/indst type work.There are blueprints for all the work,so it has never really been an issue.It's ironic that I never even heard the rule in all that time. Been fun talking with ya,later

                                That's exactly what I said. A post said a 20 amp circuit with one device. IMO one device means that it's on one yoke. A duplex is one device. If that device were a duplex receptacle than it could be a 15 amp duplex.
