    Hello again,

    Please help settle a disagreement between a good college of mine and I. I contend that the GEC to a Separately derived system such as a dry type transformer can be terminated to a 4 barrel ground terminal attached to the frame (paint removed) inside the transformer case along with the EG’s and a system bonding jumper from the ground terminal up to the XO terminal. He contends that that 250.64(C) requires the GEC to be continuous without splice to XO, in which I think that it is a connection (250.30(C) not a splice at the Ground terminal. I don’t have a problem with taking the GEC directly to XO but on some transformers there is not enough room on XO for the larger 4 barrel lug.

    Thanks, Kelly Wofford
