Perhaps he was using the NEC instead of the CEC? :blink:

PS for those who don't know the superior metric system, 2 x 1.8 metre = 11.81 feet

That sure seems really close to 12'.PS for those who don't know the superior metric system, 2 x 1.8 metre = 11.81 feet

Nope..... okay someone else caught Frunk's bad metric conversion...the rule 1.8m from any point on the wall to the nearest receptacle (or 8ft between)?

Close. 1.8m= 5.9 feet. so the receptacle being in the middle, the maximum distance allowed it 12 feet. It stems from the 6 foot lamp cord being able to reach any point along a wall.

12 is the max number of outlets on a circuit.

Correct on the maximum number of outlets. In the CEC 8-304 (1) :thumbup: although rule 8-304 (3) states: Where the connected load is known, the number of outlets shall be permitted to exceed 12, provided that the load current does not exceed 80% of the rating of the overcurrent device protecting the circuit.

(Now I wonder how many are going to go measure a lamp cord now.:laughing:
