    “Neat and workmanlike manner” is specified in NFPA 70, but is it specifically identified in Article 800?

    • A.

      A. Yes

    • B.

    Cables installed parallel to framing members or furring strips must be protected from damage by either installing the wiring method so it isn’t less than 1¼ in. from the nearest edge of the framing member or furring strips or installing a 1⁄16-in.-thick steel plate or the equivalent.

    • A.

      A. True

    • B.

      B. False

    Correct Answer
    A. A. True
    Explanation
    Cables installed parallel to framing members or furring strips can be easily damaged if not properly protected. To prevent damage, the wiring method must be installed at a distance of at least 1¼ inches from the nearest edge of the framing member or furring strips. Alternatively, a 1/16-inch-thick steel plate or an equivalent protective measure can be used. Therefore, the statement "Cables installed parallel to framing members or furring strips must be protected from damage by either installing the wiring method so it isn’t less than 1¼ in. from the nearest edge of the framing member or furring strips or installing a 1/16-in.-thick steel plate or the equivalent" is true.

    Cable ties are never permitted in a plenum ceiling.

    • A.

      A. True

    • B.

      B. False

    Correct Answer
    A. A. True
    Explanation
    Cable ties are not permitted in a plenum ceiling because plenum ceilings are spaces used for air circulation in buildings. Using cable ties in these spaces can pose a fire hazard as they can restrict airflow and potentially cause overheating. Therefore, it is true that cable ties are never permitted in a plenum ceiling.

    • E.

      E. none of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. A. accessible
    Explanation
    Cables installed in concealed raceways are not considered accessible because they are hidden or enclosed, making them difficult to reach or interact with. Therefore, they are not required to be removed.

    Correct Answer
    A. A. Nonconductive and conductive optical fiber cables in compliance with Parts I & V of Article 770
    Explanation
    Optical fiber cables are allowed to be installed in the same raceway as nonconductive and conductive optical fiber cables, as long as they comply with the regulations outlined in Parts I & V of Article 770. This means that optical fiber cables can be installed together with other optical fiber cables, as long as they meet the necessary safety requirements specified in the mentioned article.

  • 13. 

    Conductors in communications cables, other than in a coaxial cable shall be ____.

    • A.

      A. copper

    • B.

      B. a minimum of 18AWG

    • C.

      C. rated for less than 300 volts

    • D.

      D. temperature rated not more than 60 degrees Celsius

    Correct Answer
    A. A. copper
    Explanation
    Conductors in communications cables, other than in a coaxial cable, are typically made of copper. Copper is a widely used material for conductors due to its excellent conductivity and resistance to corrosion. It allows for efficient transmission of electrical signals in communication systems. Other options such as minimum AWG, voltage rating, and temperature rating are not specific to the material used for the conductors and do not accurately describe the requirement for conductors in communications cables.

    According to Article 800, the provisions of 300.22(A) apply. This means that the rules and regulations stated in 300.22(A) are relevant and must be followed in relation to Article 800. The specific details of what these provisions entail are not mentioned, but it is clear that they are applicable in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Cable ties intended for use in other space used for environment air shall be listed as having low smoke and heat release properties and are defined as ____.

    • A.

      A. metallic ties

    • B.

      B. plenum grade cable ties

    • C.

      C. fire safe ties

    • D.

      D. No such thing — trick question

    Correct Answer
    B. B. plenum grade cable ties
    Explanation
    Plenum grade cable ties are specifically designed for use in spaces used for air circulation, such as plenum spaces. These spaces require cable ties that have low smoke and heat release properties in order to minimize the risk of fire and smoke spreading through the ventilation system. Therefore, plenum grade cable ties are the appropriate choice for cable management in these environments.
