Sample text

Leave at least 2 ft. of wire at the service panel and 6" extending beyond the front edges at each electrical box. Wire, Cable & Conduit ■ 49 Surface-mounted Wiring S urface-mounted wiring is a network of electrical circuits that run through small, decorative tubes that function much like conduit. The systems include matching elbows, T-connectors, and various other fittings and boxes that are also surface-mounted. The main advantage to a surface-mounted wiring system is that you can add a new fixture onto a circuit without cutting into your walls.

Conduit should be anchored within 3 ft. of each box and fitting, and every 10 ft. thereafter. Open one knockout for each length of conduit that will be attached to the box. Attach an offset fitting to each knockout using a locknut. 6 Make conduit bends by attaching a sweep fitting using a setscrew fitting or compression fitting. Continue conduit run by attaching additional lengths using setscrew or compression fittings. 7 Use an elbow fitting in conduit runs that have many bends, or in runs that require very long wires.

Be sure to refer to a box fill chart (see page 62) to learn which size and shape box is required for your job. Electrical panels function like other electrical boxes insofar as they house connections, but they also house breakers or fuses and other parts that transmit power from the service entry to the individual circuits. Subpanels are smaller electrical panels that perform the same function but are supplied by the main service panel so they can distribute power into multiple circuits in a remote spot.
