As a leading manufacturer of GFCI protection in circuit breakers and receptacles, Eaton will review the technology and theory behind GFCI operation and the NEC 2020 requirements. This presentation will assist contractors, inspectors, electricians and designers on the selection and use of GFCI technology for the various code requirements.
Every three years, members of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) meet to review, modify and add new National Electrical Code (NEC), or NFPA 70, requirements to enhance electrical safety in the workplace and the home.
The NFPA 70, National Electrical Code, creates the foundation for electrical safety. The updated 2020 version of this reliable code echos the evolution of the industry, resulting in several updates and four new articles related to the pressing issues of emergency disconnects, ground fault circuit interrupters, surge protection, arc energy reduction and more.
The following are some significant changes along with Eaton product solutions to help aid in the installation and inspection processes. As always, consult with your AHJ or manufacturer for proper guidance or interpretation of the product and/or code-compliant installation.
