MAIN RULE:The Overcurrent Device Must Be Located At

The Point Where The The Conductor Receives Its Supply

Feeders Can Be Tapped Under The Following Conditions

  • 1. Not Over 10 feet

2. Not Less Than The Combined Loads, Ampere Ratings of Switchboards , Panelboards, or Control Devices.

3. Termination Is Not Made Beyond the Switchboard, Panel or Control Device

4. Conductors Must Be Protected Form Damage

10 Foot Tap RuleArt. 240.21.b.1.1

5. Tap Conductor Ampacity Not Greater Than 10 times The

Overcurrent Device.
