(D) Outside Feeder Taps
JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
Outside conductors shall be permitted to be tapped to a feeder or to be connected at a transformer secondary, without overcurrent protection at the tap or connection, where all the following conditions are met:
- The conductors are protected from physical damage in an approved manner.
- The sum of the overcurrent devices at the conductor termination limits the load to the conductor ampacity. The overcurrent devices shall consist of not more than six circuit breakers or sets of fuses mounted in a single enclosure, in a group of separate enclosures, or in or on a switchboard or switchgear. There shall be no more than six overcurrent devices grouped in any one location.
- The tap conductors are installed outdoors of a building or structure except at the point of load termination.
- The overcurrent device for the conductors is an integral part of a disconnecting means or is located immediately adjacent thereto.
- The disconnecting means for the conductors are installed at a readily accessible location complying with one of the following:
