Brain cramp here - should copper clad aluminum conductors be sized larger for a circuit (like regular aluminum), or can they be sized like copper conductors?
According to the NEC Table 310.16 they’re sized the same as Aluminum conductors.
Thought so - thanks for the reply Robert.
Bill, just curious, where are you seeing copper-clad aluminum? I think that I’ve only seen it once in 25 years as an electrician.
I’ve heard that it exists, but have never seen it myself. . .
I’ve Seen It…
Pics please if you have them - I’ve never seen it.
Was this something transitional between the older and newer alloys? Timeframe used? Thanks
If anyone’s interested, here’s the NEC, Article 100 definition:
Any Pics guys. I’ve never seen it either (that I am aware of.)
Any concerns with it?
