Default Commercial electric fixtures

Probably should have asked beforehand, but has anyone installed these retro led kits for cans? I remodeled my kitchen a few years ago, and installed some mini can lights of this brand in my soffit. Being my own house, I actually, glanced at the instructions. They seemed a bit generic. Cfl cans that required 90 degree c. Wire. Seemed crazy since I bought them from a home improvement store. I wired the in Romex anyways. anyways, the price for can retro were the right price. And are UL listed. Got eight of them for just a touch over $100 including tax. Just asking.

I have not used them but nm cable is rated 90C . You just cannot use the 90C ampacity for sizing breakers etc.

Since you could not put it on the breaker in that column, I just always assumed.

I do. Not much of a residential guy. Did it for two years. Learned a lot, but was expected to run in tennis shoes, not work boots. Lost piles of tools in the hurry to get to the next job. No time to breathe. I thought the 90 degree table was just allowed for residential derating as for many other exceptions.

Look at some other fixtures. Mostly all new fixtures call for 90 degree wire. So actually of you're changing fixtures in a pre 80's house, you're probably creating a violation.
