    2008 Challenge question

    There is one section in the 2008 NEC that will require the removal of abandoned line voltage conductors/wiring methods. Can you find it?

    Ryan,
    Are you saying this is a new rule for the 2008 code? There was one in the 2005 code.

      Hmm...perhaps there are two sections then. The one I am refering to is new.

        I'll take 390.7 for $1,000, Alex.

        Edit to add: OOops, that's not new.

                    I usually take these challenges, but I have not purchased the '08 yet, as in NYS we will not refer to that document for another 3 years. And NYC will not refer to it for another 2 years (I found out about NYC today from the "top dog").

                      I heard a rumor to the effect that the State of Washington is considering not adopting the 2008 NEC at all, ever. The normal course of events would have had it adopted in July of 2008. I will therefore wait a while before I buy my own copy. So you will have to keep this challenge open until then, or I'll sue you for discriminating against NW residents! :grin:

                        640.6(C), but that's not line voltage... ditto for 645.5(F)

                        I give up...

                          How about 725.25.

                          This requires that the abandonded portion of Class2, Class 3, and PLTC cables be removed or identified for future use.

                          Class 3 circuits can have voltages as high as 150 volts.

                            Don will be very happy.

                              Chris, you're on the right track, sort of. It has nothing to do with Class 3 circuits, however.
