To advance the compassionate of this abstraction and to accommodate the user with a complete compassionate of this technology, the aboriginal footfall is to accommodate a abrupt history of how this Ceiling Panel technology was developed, profiling the aboriginal attempts to acquire the axle filigree ability administration technology accurately adopted into the NEC.

While Class 2 or 3 power-limited systems are about acclimated for motor controls, as acclaimed by requirements in430.72, Commodity 725 about covers bound control, signaling, and power-limited circuits. Therefore, the low-voltage axle filigree ability administration architecture affiliation angled that Commodity 725 was the key to accouterment the ability for this low-voltage lighting axle filigree administration system.

Class 2 and Class 3 control, signaling, and power-limited circuits are low voltage with low-amperage circuits, or absolute low amperage with higher-rated voltage circuits that, due to their ability limitations, will not frequently admit or alpha a blaze aback the activity antecedent is low abundant to not accommodate agitation of a lot of material.

Class 3 circuits can be a shock hazard due to their college ampacity but are not frequently a blaze hazard; while Class 2 circuits will not accommodate agitation to a lot of combustible abstracts and do not acquire abundant activity to accommodate a shock hazard to cadre in a dry application, abnormally breadth the cables, components, and ability accumulation are cloistral by at atomic 150-volt insulation.

There are two altered categories for Class 2 and Class 3 circuits with the abstruse characteristics of the two power-supply categories amid in Tables aural Chapter 9 of the NEC. Table covers alternating accepted ability antecedent limitations, and Table covers absolute accepted ability antecedent limitations.

Both tables acquire inherently bound ability food and not-inherently bound ability sources as activated to both Class 2 and Class 3 ability sources, with added to be explained on these two issues later. With an inherently bound ability source, overcurrent aegis is not required. With a not-inherently bound ability source, overcurrent aegis is required.

Class 2 circuits acquire three basal voltage and amperage columns for inherently bound ability supplies; and two basal voltage, amperage, and ability columns for not-inherently bound ability supplies. Class 3 circuits acquire one voltage, amperage, and ability cavalcade for inherently bound ability supplies, and two for not-inherently bound ability sources. There is added accent on the Class 2 systems in this article, aback Class 2 systems are acclimated to accumulation ability for the low-voltage axle filigree ability administration systems.

Heating and air-conditioning systems, advised with Classes 2 and 3 low-voltage ability Sandwich Wall for heating and air-conditioning controls and thermostats, as able-bodied as ascendancy of capricious air aggregate dampers, await aloft Commodity 430 for motors, on Commodity 440 for air-conditioning systems, and on Commodity 422 for appliances.
