Where is the code that says you always need a connector for BX? Like coming into the back of a light, junction box etc
Debate came up at work about a BX feeding a light. I said you need a L16 connecting to the light, they say no you don't. So free air BX right through the knock out of a light vs L16. Just looking for a specific code.cdnelectrician said:Probably in section 12 under armoured cable somewhere...might I ask why you need to know?
