Re: Outlets Per Breaker
A 15 amp duplex can be used when there is a 15 amp circuit,IMO the reason for this article was to stop 15 amp receptacles to be used on a 20 amp dedicated circuit like lets say a fridge.In that case a single 20 or a 20 amp rated duplex is required..All to common in residental trim outs.15 amp duplexes throughout the home.Fridge might have been dedicated depends on rough crew,trim crew installs a duplex and on final AHJ reads panel legend (fridge) and sees a 15 a duplex Haven`t let him down yet.Oh and by the way he does go back and spot check me,hate to think of what might be if I didn`t hold up to my endOriginally posted by infinity:
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.BigJohn67, Infinity:
210.21.(B)(1) Single Receptacle on an Individual Branch Circuit. A single receptacle installed on an individual branch circuit shall have an ampere rating not less than that of the branch circuit. This means a single receptacle, NOT A DUPLEX recept.
