The NEC has been published since , and in that time the code and its accompanying National Electrical Code Handbook have undergone radical restructuring to reflect the latest electrical and wiring technologies. The edition of the NEC has been revised to include important changes such as: NFPA Date de parution: Bon de commande BO Librairie technique. Code Postal:. Rue de Capri.

The NFPA recovers part of its code development costs by selling code books. However, they do make available a limited-use online copy of the NEC. Unfortunately, the NFPA intentionally makes this free online version difficult to find and use.
If the free online version were easy to use, no one would download the books!
I tell you how to access the free version below. It tells Google that this information was valuable for us to publish! Most libraries will have every recent version of the code on their shelves, and you can make photocopies of the sections you need for your job. It worked great, and our wall oven is installed to code specifications!
Because of the reputation of these listing agencies, the "authority having jurisdiction" or "AHJ" — as they are commonly known usually will quickly accept any device, appliance, or piece of equipment having such a label, provided that an end user or installer uses the product in accordance with manufacturer's instructions and the limitations of the listing standard.
However, an AHJ, under the National Electrical Code provisions, has the authority to deny approval for even listed and labeled products. Likewise, an AHJ may make a written approval of an installation or product that does not meet either NEC or listing requirements, although this is normally done only after an appropriate review of the specific conditions of a particular case or location. The Code has user-friendly features to aid the reader in seeing changes.
Revisions or additions to the articles from the version are highlighted in gray shading.
For circuits defined as low voltage, in some jurisdictions, there is no requirement for licensing, training, or certification of installers, and no inspection of completed work is required, for either residential or commercial work. Low voltage cabling run in the walls and ceilings of commercial buildings is also typically excluded from the requirements to be installed in protective conduit. In more recent terms, the upper cutoff for what is considered low is approximately 50 Volts, with most computer network equipment operating at 48 Volts DC or lower, and not requiring special training to connect or use.
Although low voltage cabling does not require inspection or training to install in some jurisdictions, it is still important for installers to be aware of specific electric code safety rules such as how to correctly penetrate building fire barriers and use firestop putty intumescents to prevent a low voltage cable from reducing building fire protection and increasing the risk of injury or death for building occupants.
Access to such safety information is typically restricted and limited access by the electrical industry itself so as to only permit licensed professionals to learn the NEC rules and educate themselves. Ten important items in Article have been summarized in a codebook. Aluminum wiring is listed by Underwriters Laboratories for interior wiring applications and became increasingly used around due to its lower cost.
Prior to , however, the aluminum wire used was manufactured to conform to the series aluminum alloy, but this alloy was eventually deemed unsuitable for branch circuits due to galvanic corrosion where the copper and aluminum touched, resulting in poor contact and resistance to current flow, connector overheating problems, and potential fire risk. Today, a new aluminum wire AA has been approved for branch circuits that does not cause corrosion where it contacts copper, but it is not readily available and is not manufactured below size 8 AWG.
Hence, copper wire is used almost exclusively in branch circuitry. A ground fault circuit interrupter GFCI is required for all receptacles in wet locations defined in the Code.
The NEC also has rules about how many circuits and receptacles should be placed in a given residential dwelling, and how far apart they can be in a given type of room, based upon the typical cord length of small appliances. Polarized, grounding, Volt receptacle As of the NEC required that new Volt household receptacle outlets, for general purpose use, be both grounded and polarized. NEMA connectors implement these requirements. Changes in standards often create problems for new work in old buildings.
A GFCI detects an imbalance between the current in the "hot" side and the current in the "neutral" side. One GFCI receptacle can serve as protection for several downstream conventional receptacles. GFCI devices come in many configurations including circuit-breakers, portable devices and receptacles.
Another safety device introduced with the code is the arc-fault circuit interrupter AFCI. This device detects arcs from hot to neutral that can develop when insulation between wires becomes frayed or damaged. While arcs from hot to neutral would not trip a GFCI device since current is still balanced, circuitry in an AFCI device detects those arcs and will shut down a circuit.
