I am confused about the Canadian Electrical Code, when it comes to the limits, to the amount of conductors that are allowed in a box. I understand it except for part: 12-3034(2)(b) one conductor for every pair of wire connectors with insulating caps (no deduction for one wire

connector, deduct one conductor for 2- or 3-wire connectors, two conductors for 4- or 5-wire

connectors, etc.)

What exactly does this mean if I have a junction box with 3 groups of 3 wires with wire nuts, + 3 insulated grounds connected with a wire nut?

Do the insulated grounds(group) count as 1 or 3?

I am confused about the wording of the rule 12-3034(2)(b). Do I subtract one conductor for the 3 wire nuts, only, or do I subtract a conductors for EACH group of 3, that is connected with a wire nut?

(So not counting the grounds) Is this 9 conductors + 1 for 3 wire nuts, or 9 conductors + 3 for 3 groups of 3?

Thanks all for your help so far :thumbsup:
