RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Use of power strips per NEC - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Need some help here.

I have been told that the use of power strips for a new installation is a violation of the National Electric Code (NEC). According to my source, NEC requires that sufficient duplex receptacles be installed to accomodate all planned equipment, i.e., a room full of computers. Extension cords and power strips must be an afterthought.

Seems to me I've seen many offices where power strips are installed as a matter of course from day one.

Thanks guys.

Earl

I believe you are correct.

I was once testing a prototype, with long wire leads coming out of the board. One of the leads sprung back and went right into the hot side of a power strip that was mounted on the edge of the bench riser. Forth of July in the middle of winter!
