Re: hot receptacle


You need four wire cable between the switches and the light.

My teachers says that would a good solution if you had enough on a project to afford 12/4 BX cable. Local Home Depot has it at $500 for 250 ft. he said there is a way to connect with just 2 and 3 BX cable. I don't see it. he is not going to tell us till next month in class. Here are the things we have to do is attached. The ones I am having problems with Job 21-30

Re: hot receptacle


You could run two 2 wire cables, but there is no other code way to do it without four wires.
