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 “general requirement, including laboratory surfaces”. 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 didn’t cross my mind that anyone would make an inference based solely on the one sentence I extracted and placed on the board.
