Insulated staples? Mr. fancy pants!

If I had any say in it you'd still be welcome in the Kingdom of Heaven. But who am I to judge.

That wasn't me, I'm still a bare staple man, insulated is like wearing a condom.

Do you like those wire nuts or are you using up stock?
I like the tan twisters best.

The biggest thing I see is the fire alarm cable. What size is that? Looks tiny.

TOOL_5150 11-20-2013 10:20 PM

ive done that many times.

Do they not sell T+B bakelite 4" square deep junction boxes (screw on type with no bracket) north of the Mason Dixon line?

someonespecial 11-20-2013 10:54 PM

That's how I would do it, but I guess the more correct way to do it would to leave the transformer mounted on the outside of the box with the line side wiring on the inside like a doorbell transformer.

JPRO2 11-20-2013 11:01 PM

Do it all the time haha

Fredman 11-20-2013 11:37 PM

But is it listed for that?

Bkessler 11-21-2013 12:03 AM

That's the common sense thing to do.

The topics covered on this site include activities in which there exists the potential for serious injury or death.

ElectricianTalk.com DOES NOT

I've often thought that small transformers were probably less of a fire hazard inside the box than outside, except that the cover should be vented for heat dissipation. However, without a barrier your install is a violation, so no matter how the fire started you are on the hook; for that reason (liability) I wouldn't do that. If you relabeled the transformer "class 1" and used nm for the LV side, I'd say it was compliant. I like the class2 transformers that have built in short ckt and overload protection.
