The manufacturers installation instructions are the guiding documents. The NEC states you have to install per manufactures instructions. Most "permanently" installed require a separate circuit.Not installing separate circuits and dedicated outlet fixtures, (every duplex outlet providing an outlet for low Ampere low use appliances)
is silly. As inverters and variable frequency digital drives become evermore common and "pollute" the their circuits with harmful voltage spikes/noise.
The code is a GUIDE for MINIMUM qualities and amounts, any structure that isn't a flop house or pre- engineered metal building should exceed them in a rational market place. IMHO:blink:
Yugos were legal, but would you let your only daughter drive/own one?:jester:
I'm having a hard time understanding your response.Some appliance mfg. recommend a separate circuit so that does not require a separate circuit. I do agree that most of them do state separate circuit.
Okay. Don't recall ever seeing one that "recommended" a separate circuit. If they mention it at all it's been in the "electrical requirement" section.I am saying that if the mfg company recommends a separate cirxuit then that is not the same as the mfg company requiring a separate circuit.
One is a requirement and the other is a recommendation and as such we do not have to follow it.
