Canadian Electrical Code,

Bill Burr.

In this article: the second of two parts on Section 26 — Installation of electrical equipment. The code is a comprehensive document. Sometimes it can seem quite daunting to quickly find the information you need. This series of articles provides a guide to help users find their way through this critical document. This is not intended to replace the notes in Appendix B or the explanations of individual requirements contained in the CEC Handbook, but will hopefully provide some help in navigating the code.

Panelboards — see Section 0 – Definitions Rules 26-400 and 26-402 prescribe the requirements for panelboards in dwelling units and the location of panelboards.

Lightning arrestors Rules 26-500 to 26-504 outline the requirements for use, location, and installation of lightning arrestors both indoors and outdoors. Rules 26-506 to 26-512 describe the requirements for installation of choke coils, connection and insulation of accessories, and the grounding of lightning arrestors.
