NEC And Receptacles

Posted on/at 7:27 PM by Sparky

I just wanted to post something about one of the new changes in the 2008 NEC that has started to affect us in our jurisdiction. Article 406.11 of the 2008 NEC requires all 125 volt 15 and 20 amp receptacles specified in article 210.52 of a dwelling to be tamper resistant. I am not 100% thrilled about them however they are a good idea as far as safety is concerned. One good thing is if someone has a cord with damaged blades it probably will not accept it.
