240.4 & T-310.16 Conductor Protection and Ampacity

240.4 & T-310.16 Conductor Protection and Ampacity

Understanding Conductor Protection (240.4) and how to use the most common Ampacity Table in the NEC (T-310.16). I also look at several Code sections that relate directly to T-310.16 and consider Insulation Ratings. [All Code Sections from 2020 NEC]

    Of all the teachers I’ve learned from in my 53 years, I’d have to say you are my favourite. I hope there’s more lessons. In any case, thank YOU, Dave!

    I thought the temp ratings were the current a conductor could carry at that ambient temp. So as long as you don’t have more current on that conductor it’ll never exceed the temp listed regardless of the ambient temp?

    If more than 3 CCC are ran thru a conduit can u instead of upgrading wire just change out conduit to a bigger size and if so what would b the correct size to use? And what percentage of the conduit fill would be used?

    Hi Mr Gordon, I Was wondering if I could possibly get your email address from you from you because I have a few questions I’d like to ask and talk to you about

    4:50 Also, the title of article 310.14 says table 310.16 applies to conductors rated between 0 V and 2000 V.
