NEMA Publishes Two Cable Standards

Both standards have been updated to reflect changes in the National Electrical Code®. RV 1, last revised in 2004, contains information on the latest installation, application, and construction requirements for types MC and AC cables. RV 2, last revised in 2005, focuses on types NM-B and UF-B cables.

George Straniero, chair of the committee that revised RV 1, said, “The information provided will be useful to designers, specifiers, contractors, electricians, apprentice programs, and to anyone that wants to be sure that the proper armored cable product is specified for the proper application and that the cables are properly installed to ensure a safe and trouble-free electrical installation.”

Dave Mercier, chair of the committee that revised RV 2, said, “These application and installation guidelines offer practical information on correct usage and industry-recommended practices for the installation of Type NM-B and Type UF-B cables.”
