NEC Low Voltage Circuits Bundle
Continuing Education Units (CEU): 0.30
Expected Duration: 3 Hours
This self-paced online series examines low voltage circuits as well as outlines Chapter 7 and 8 in NFPA 70: National Electrical Code. Complete all three courses and earn .3 CEU.
These modules are included in the series:
- Remote Control & Signaling
- Special Conditions in the NEC Chapter 7
- Optical Fiber & Communications
Upon completion you should be able to:
- Distinguish between Articles 700, 701 and 702 that address testing and maintenance, capacity requirements, transfer equipment, signals, signs, circuit wiring, sources of power and selective coordination.
- Article 700 (Emergency Systems) deals with power requirements that directly affect life safety issues.
- Article 701 (Legally Required Standby Systems) addresses power requirements that could affect safety, typically by affecting rescue or firefighting operations, and are deemed necessary by the AHJ.
- Article 702 (Optional Standby Systems) covers systems that are not addressed by Articles 700 or 701.
- Explain similarities and differences between Articles 725 and 760.
- Identify Article 725 that covers the use, listing and marking of cables for remote control and signaling systems.
- Article 760 addresses fire alarm circuits, which work similarly to remote control and signaling circuits and perform similar functions. They can be either power-limited or non-power-limited.
- Explain similarities and differences between Article 770 and Chapter 8 and how these two articles compare with Articles 725 and 760
