40 volts to switched outlets with the switch off... 120 when switch is on.. what the heck!!!
Testing out units after finish for punch list stuff.Where and what are you measuring 40V off and 120V on?
And did you find that by accident or was there a reason you were looking?
Check and check..Double check the switch leg. Check continuity of the switch as well. Shut off breaker and see if you still have the same voltage. Just a couple ideas.

That's what I figured. But it still weirded me out.To me it's a non issue.. probably some induced voltage on the conductor. If it could move a wiggy or light up a bulb, I'd be trying to figure it out.
Is this a high rise with conductors all together in conduit?
Hn 12040v to what?

yes !40 volts to switched outlets with the switch off... 120 when switch is on.. What the heck!!!
What if the neutral is shared? It's in parallel. Your not supposed to have potential unless you get in between the neutral.Did you check the continuity of the switch.
Ding ding dingAre using the flat 14/3 romex. there was an apartment building locally that had the same issue. AHJ had a big problem with it but finally the consensus was that is was induction as I recall.
