Code Question of the Daytextbook

    CQD: 1/29/2015


    In the 2014 NEC, Section 314.16(B)(2), there is some new highlighted text that hopefully you could explain as to what exactly is being referred. More specifically, what is the “clamp assembly that incorporates a cable termination for the cable conductors”?

    What does it mean by conductors that originate within the clamp assembly?

    Why is it such a big deal that a whole paragraph was added to this section?

    Myself and some other instructors at our JATC, are having trouble understanding this new highlighted text.

    Thanks for all your help, Sal Genovesi
