Ever wondered about electrical code and how it affects the DIYer? Here is some information on the Canadian Electrical Code online. CANADIAN ELECTRICAL CODE, PART I (24TH EDITION), SAFETY STANDARD FOR ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS: CSA Group: Books. Navigating the Canadian Electrical Code Book for those with little experience using it can be a scary I become comfortable with the code book and so will you!.

In both cases, the Subrules now simply require two things: 1 that the continuous load not exceed the continuous operation marking on the fused switch or circuit breaker, and 2 that the continuous load not exceed a specified percentage of the allowable ampacity determined from Section 4. Gone are references to specific columns in Tables, underground installations, and derating correction factors.

In addition, conductor ampacities are determined by Section 4, not 8, as confirmed by several related changes to Section 8. Finally, the Subrule has been inconsistently applied. As such, Subrule 1 was deleted.

Marking for maximum continuous load Code — no labelling requirement Code — maximum continuous load required to be field marked on equipment The maximum continuous load determined for a given installation may be substantially less than the equipment rating. However, there is no requirement to communicate this information to maintenance personnel, installers, or inspectors, for purposes of future maintenance or modification of the electrical system.

Section 2 – General Rules

As a result, new Subrule 4 requires that a caution label be applied to the equipment to indicate the maximum permitted continuous load. Electric shock drowning Code — 15 and 20 A receptacles require GFCI protection Code — ground fault protection for feeders, GFCI protection for receptacles Much research has been conducted on the phenomenon known as electric shock drowning. Section 78 has been extensively updated to require GFCI and Ground Fault protection for branch circuits and feeders respectively.

The scope of Section 78 has been expanded to include additional types of structures such as floating piers and docking facilities, and the Rules have been re-arranged to simplify navigation of the Section.

Electric vehicle supply equipment EVSE can draw a substantial load when in the charging mode.

Review of the Canadian Electrical Code, 2018 edition

For existing buildings, the addition of EVSE can result in the total load exceeding the existing service capacity.

In this case, the first option is to increase the service size.

A second option is to install a system to monitor the power being drawn by EVSEs and other building loads, and control the EVSE loads such that the overall load does not exceed the limits of the existing service, feeders, and branch circuits.

Kitchen wall not counter receptacles Code — separate branch circuit required Code — separate branch circuit not required Wall receptacles provided in a kitchen are required to be supplied by a separate circuit. However, this requirement predates the requirement for counter receptacles and circuits.

Given that many kitchens are now used as general living areas, and that receptacles are now required to be provided along the kitchen wall in the same fashion as a living room, there is no longer a need for a dedicated circuit.

Part I requires that electrical products be approved to a Part II standard Part III is the safety standard for power distribution and transmission circuits.

Part IV is set of objective-based standards that may be used in certain industrial or institutional installations. Part VI establishes standards for the inspection of electrical installation in residential buildings.

Technical requirements of the Canadian Electrical Code are very similar to those of the U. National Electrical Code. Specific differences still exist and installations acceptable under one Code may not entirely comply with the other.

Correlation of technical requirements between the two Codes is ongoing. These standards are intended for use only by authorized industrial users and would not apply, for example, to residential construction.

These standards do not prescribe specific solutions for every case but instead give guidance to the user on achievement of the safety objectives of IEC These books show you what specific standards are required by your inspector, in your province.

Complete instructions for whole house wiring in simple, easy to understand language. The books feature a large number of illustrations. Official rules sometimes overlap and regulations can be vague.

These books draw together overlapping rules to make practical application easy. Electrical Code Simplified is never vague.
