Chapter 2: Wiring and Protection is next with updated sections such as exceptions for ungrounded conductors, dwelling unit receptacle outlets, and circuits not to be grounded, among many other sections.
For Chapter 3: Wiring Methods and Materials, we'll take a look at individual sections that were updated including protecting wiring from physical damage, raceways and cables on rooftops, and different cable types.
