How well do you know the Code? Think you can spot violations the original installer either ignored or couldn't identify? Here's your chance to moonlight as an electrical inspector and second-guess someone else's work from the safety of your living room or office. Joe Tedesco, who has a knack for finding shoddy electrical work, did the dirty work and found this mess. Now it's your turn to identify the violation.
As defined in 368.2 of the 2008 NEC, a busway is “a grounded metal enclosure containing factory-mounted, bare or insulated conductors, which are usually copper or aluminum bars, rods, or tubes.”
The installation requirements for busways can be found in Sec. 368.10. ”Busways shall be permitted to be installed where they are located in accordance with 368.10(A) through (C).”
The installation requirements for installing busway through walls and floors can be found in 368.10(C), which states:
“Busways shall be permitted to be installed through walls or floors in accordance with (C)(1) and (C)(2).”
