February 13, 2019 - Section 4 in the CE Code discusses the selection of conductors and their ampacities. In 2018, the scope of this section’s Rule 4-000 was revised to clarify its intent. At the same time, since Section 12 covers conductor installation, some rules were relocated from Section 4 to Section 12 and vice-versa, for the sake of consistency and to support the revised scope of Section 4.
December 11, 2018 - The 2015 CE Code saw a number of changes to Section 68: Pools, Tubs, Spas. The 2018 CE Code also added a few more changes, but you might just wonder, what is really new with pools from the past few years?
September 27, 2018 — With the rewrite of CE Code Section 10, a number of questions spring to mind. In my opinion, the most important are what is the intent of Rule 10-210 and what is it really saying?
July 27, 2018 — For the first time in the CE Code (2018 ed.), a unit substation is defined as an integrated unit consisting of one or more transformers, disconnecting means, overcorrect devices and other associated equipment, each contained in an enclosure designed and constructed to restrict access to live parts (Rule 26-240).
April 4, 2018 — Continuing our discussion regarding electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE a.k.a. EV chargers), let’s look at a few examples to understand the load impact on the service size for a typical house, and how changes in the 2018 CE Code facilitate such installations.
February 13, 2018 – With the steady increase of electric vehicles on our roads, the 2018 CE Code (publishing this month) includes new Rules that recognize EV energy management systems (EVEMS), which address evolving EV technology and issues associated with future loading on electrical infrastructure.
January 22, 2018 — The number of changes coming to the 2018 CE Code are fairly substantial, and while a number of them involve tweaked wording and/or definitions, there are also a fair number of what I would call “significant” changes.
October 6, 2017 — Rules in Section 16 (New 16-300 series added) of the upcoming CE Code 2018 have been amended to include requirements for Class 2 power and datacom circuits. Although the new requirements do not reference “Power-over-Ethernet” (PoE) terminology, an Appendix B Note is added to explain the “Class 2 power and data communication circuit” is based on the concept known as PoE, introduced by the IEEE 802.3 series of standards.
September 15, 2017 — In addition to a number of changes in 2012, CE Code Section 62 “Fixed electric heating systems” underwent a fairly substantial rewrite in 2015. So what’s changed?
