2014 Code Changes 200.4(B)

Categories: News & Stuff

This weeks change comes from Chapter 2, article 200.4(B) identifying neutral conductors.  This change is for all enclosures not just in a panelboard.  So when you run several circuits with neutral through a Junction box remember to identify them, so we know which circuit the serve.

New Product GFCI/AFCI outlet

Categories: News & Stuff

During my trip out on Black Friday I found a new product that should help solve some of the problems I have run into out in the field.  The product is a GFCI/AFCI receptacle outlet, both 15 and 20 ampere.  Thought this may help with the problems of, “How do I get AFCI protection there”.  Check out the link below to see this new outlet.

Both Eaton and Square D have retro kits for replacing old panels.  Some of these kits are guts only or the whole panel fitting in an old small space.

See the attached link to Eaton retro kit, I will post the Square D one when I find it.

Code Change missed.

This weeks Code change comes from section 210.52(E)(3) outlets on Balconies, porches, or decks.  In the 2008 Code it was required to be at 20 square feet before requiring an outlet on a balcony, porch or a deck.  In the 2011 NEC they took out the 20 square foot requirement and now mandate an outlet on any size balcony, porch or deck.
