Will the changes to the 2020 National Electrical Code affect how you design, install and maintain electrical systems and equipment? Given the broad scope of the changes, the answer will most probably be, “Yes.” But, specifically, what should you look for?
Here are some quick answers covered in our webinar:
- New and revised definitions
- Expansion of GFCI requirements
- The combining of two articles into a new article for Overvoltage Protection
- Extensive restructuring of rules for Communication Systems
Other changes include torque requirements for terminal connections, general lighting load calculations for non-dwelling occupancies and restructuring of information on conductors for general wiring (including renumbering of ampacity tables!). Splash pads, medium voltage cable and PV systems are other areas you may need to review. Attend this webinar and find out on what topics you must further concentrate.
