(A) Electrical Equipment Not Required to Be Grounded
Alternating-current systems supplying fixed and portable electrical equipment within the cell line working zone shall not be required to be grounded.
(B) Exposed Conductive Surfaces Not Required to Be Grounded
Exposed conductive surfaces, such as electrical equipment housings, cabinets, boxes, motors, raceways, and the like, that are within the cell line working zone shall not be required to be grounded.
(C) Wiring Methods
Auxiliary electrical equipment such as motors, transducers, sensors, control devices, and alarms, mounted on an electrolytic cell or other energized surface, shall be connected to premises wiring systems by any of the following means:
  1. Multiconductor hard usage cord.
  2. Wire or cable in suitable raceways or metal or nonmetallic cable trays. If metal conduit, cable tray, armored cable, or similar metallic systems are used, they shall be installed with insulating breaks such that they do not cause a potentially hazardous electrical condition.
(D) Circuit Protection
Circuit protection shall not be required for control and instrumentation that are totally within the cell line working zone.
(E) Bonding
Bonding of fixed electrical equipment to the energized conductive surfaces of the cell line, its attachments, or auxiliaries shall be permitted. Where fixed electrical equipment is mounted on an energized conductive surface, it shall be bonded to that surface.
