1 NEC 2014 Code Changes Articles CHANGES FROM 2011 CODE ARE IN RED Chapter 2 - Wiring and Protection ARTICLE 200 Use and Identification of Grounded Conductors General Grounded Conductors will act as stated in section Further Information: For information on the conformability of grounded conductors used in multi-wire branch circuits refer to section (B). (A) Insulation: The grounded conductor, if insulated, shall have insulation that is (1) suitable, other than color, for any ungrounded conductor of the same circuit for systems of 1000 volts or less, or impedance grounded neutral systems of over 1000 volts, or (2) rated not less than 600 volts for solidly grounded neutral systems of over 1000 volts as described in (A) Neutral Conductors (A) Installation: You will not use Neutral Conductors for more than one branch circuit, for more than one multiwire branch circuit, or for more than one group of ungrounded feeder conductors. Exception: Use of Neutral Conductors is allowed if shown elsewhere in the Code All Star Training, Inc. 1

2 (B) Multiple Circuits. Where multiple neutral conductors associated with different circuits are in an enclosure, grounded circuit conductors of each circuit shall be identified or grouped to correspond with the ungrounded circuit conductor(s) by wire markers, cable ties, or similar means in one or more within the enclosure. Exception No. 1: The requirement for grouping or identifying shall not apply if the branch-circuit or feeder conductors which enter from a cable or a raceway unique to the circuit that makes the grouping obvious. Exception No. 2: The requirement for grouping or identifying shall not apply where branch-circuit conductors pass though a box or conduit body without a loop or without a splice or termination Means of Identifying Grounded Conductors (A) Sizes 6 AWG or Smaller: Insulated grounded conductors of 6 AWG or smaller will be identified in one of the following ways. (1) A continuous white outer finish (2) A continuous gray outer finish 2014 All Star Training, Inc. 2

3 (3) Three continuous white or gray stripes along the conductor s entire length on other than green installations. (1) Three continuous white stripes along the conductor s full length. Use of green insulation will not be allowed. (2) Wires with insulation of a white or gray color, but have colored tracer threads in the braid identifying the place of manufacture, will meet the directives of this section. (B) Sizes 4 AWG or Larger: Insulated grounded conductors that are 4 AWG or larger will be identified by one of the following means: (1) A continuous white outer finish. (2) A continuous gray outer finish. Identification will be documented in a way that is easily available. It must also be displayed where the conductors of different systems originate Use of Insulation of a White or Gray Color or with Three Continuous White or Gray Stripes. (C) Circuits of 50 Volts or More: Insulation that is white, gray, or that has three continuous white or gray stripes for other than a grounded conductor for circuits of 50 volts or more will be allowed only in the following circumstances: (1) If part of a cable assembly that has the insulation re-identified by marking tape or painting at its end, to indicate its use as an ungrounded conductor and also where the conductor is visible All Star Training, Inc. 3

4 Identification will surround the insulation. Use of insulation that is white, gray, or green in color will not be allowed. If used for single pole, 3-way or 4-way switch loops, the re-identified conductor with allowed markings will be used only for the supply to the switch and not as a return conductor from the switch to the outlet. (2) A flexible cord, having one conductor identified by any means allowed here or in section that is used for connecting an appliance or equipment allowed in section This provision will also apply to flexible cords connected to outlets whether or not the outlet is supplied by a circuit with a grounded conductor.
