PCBelarge, did you read the NEC article I sited? In its entirety it reads:
"406.4 (E) Receptacles in Countertops and Similar Work Surfaces in Dwelling Units. Receptacles shall not be installed in a face-up position in countertops or similar work surfaces."
As you can see, this section of the code CLEARLY states "DWELLING UNITS". This is not a â€śgeneral requirement, including laboratory surfacesâ€ť. Thus I know 406.4(E) cannot be sited for code compiancy in an industrial lab. I guess my question was, is there somewhere else in the code that would render the aforementioned installation incorrect.
I should have printed both lines of 406.4(E) in my first post to be clear. It didnâ€™t cross my mind that anyone would make an inference based solely on the one sentence I extracted and placed on the board.
