Article 725, Class 2 and 3 Circuits

Modern buildings make extensive use of these circuits. Do you know the Code requirements for installing them?

If the power source is a listed Class 2 transformer or listed Class 2 power supply — or it’s in listed equipment marked to identify the Class 2 power source — you’ve got a Class 2 circuit between the power source and the connected Class 2 equipment [725.2]. Take that sentence, change the 2 to 3, and you define a Class 3 circuit.
