Tentative Interim Amendment (TIA) Request Form Submitter’s Information Name: Donny Cook Affiliation: (Technical Committee, company, organization): NEC CMP-17, NEC CC, Shelby County, AL, Development Services Address: 1123 County Services Drive City: Pelham State:AL Email Address: dcook@shelbyal.com Zip:35124 Date: 7/28/2020 Proposed TIA Information NFPA Standard No.: Editions affected (Current and/or Proposed): NFPA 70 2020 Proposed text of the TIA (wording to be added, revised, how to be revised, or deleted): [Note: Proposed text should be in legislative format; i.e., use underscore to denote wording to be inserted (inserted wording) and strike-through to denote wording to be deleted (deleted wording).] Proposed text of the TIA (wording to be added, revised, how to be revised, or deleted): Revise 210.8 (F) as follows: 210.8(F) Outdoor Outlets. All outdoor outlets for dwellings, other than those covered in 210.8(A)(3), Exception to (3), that are supplied by single-phase branch circuits rated 150 volts or less to ground, 50 amperes or less, shall have ground-fault circuit-interrupter protection for personnel. This requirement shall become effective for ductless mini-split- type heating/ventilating/air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment and other HVAC units employing power conversion equipment as a means to control compressor speed on January 1, 2023. Informational Note: Power conversion equipment is the term used to describe components that are used in HVAC equipment that is commonly referred to as a Variable speed drive. Use of power conversion equipment to control compressor speed differs from multi-stage compressor speed control. Exception: Ground-fault circuit-interrupter protection shall not be required on lighting outlets other than those covered in 210.8(C). Statement of the problem and substantiation for the TIA This expansion of GFCI protection in the 2020 NEC to cover exterior outlets on dwelling units other than just those rated 125V is a necessary enhancement to safety. Code Making Panel 2 supported the expansion of GFCI protection to cover outdoor outlets rated 250V based on the electrocution of a young boy who came in contact with the energized enclosure of an outdoor HVAC unit. However recent field experience with new installations performed in accordance with the 2020 NEC has demonstrated some random opening of the GFCI devices protecting ductless mini splits. It has also become apparent that random opening may also occur with other equipment employing power conversion equipment controlling the speed of the compressor. The purpose of this TIA is not to eliminate the GFCI protection but provide time for the industry to understand and address the …

Hello Everyone For all B & C meetings, we have decided to use Webex. Below, you will find a link to a great introductory video that will tell you just about everything you need to know on how to join a WebEx meeting, how to test your hardware setup before joining a meeting, and how to turn on and off your microphone and your webcam. In addition to the training video, we have included some must have information about how to change your meeting view to a grid view, so that you can see everyone on one screen. The grid view is happily called “The Brady Bunch” view. We will be sending out a meeting invitation that’s specific for your meeting, which will include a WebEx meeting link. Introductory WebEx Training Video (only 2 min & 34 seconds) or try: https://youtu.be/ru85544RveA Below are a few tips in order to make your meeting successful • For this meeting, please use a computer to connect, or dial in using your phone • Do not use the VPN for participating in this meeting, the VPN will cause a slowdown in your internet traffic, which will cause issues during the video conference • Please use the computer headset if you have one available • Please keep your microphone muted, unless you are recognized to speak • In order for other to see you clearly, please participate in the meeting from a location that provides ample lighting, and do not pick a spot where there is a window behind you • Use the “grid view” in order to see all meeting participants How to turn on “grid view” 1. Hover over the view icon in the top right corner of the screen 2. Select the “grid view” icon If anyone has any questions at all about the technology behind the B & C meetings, please let me know. Stay healthy, and we’ll see you all soon. Thank you, Kory Ellis IT Manager - City Hall
