Moving Violations Video No. 120: Illegal Touching of Cables

Come on now, this was pure clickbait. Headline on Codewatch email was "What Happens when cables are illegally touching." One would expect something exciting to occur.
I hope this is not going to become a common technique for page views.

What if you use Article 336 with Type TC UL 1277 600V Ethernet cable? Or refer to NFPA 79? Article 800 is for premises.

The real violation is in the engineering. This looks like a box that might have come from a manufacturer this way. Notice the 120V (assumed voltage) block at the lower right? And why is there a splice in this box?

I see more than just a wiring violation. This appears to go back on the manufacturer. Just how many products are out there like this where no one at the manufacturing end actually looked at this?

Russ, what is the insulation resistance value of the low voltage wiring in this video? Suppose the insulation value was the same or higher than the other wires shown in your video. What would be the violation other than poor workmanship? Again, thanks for airing this video.
