multi wire branch circuit

Best answer


BranchCircuit,Multiwire. A branch circuit that consists of two or more ungrounded conductors that have a voltage between them,and a grounded conductor that has equal voltage between it and each ungrounded conductor of the circuit and that is connected to the neutral or grounded conductor of the system

People also ask


  • What is multi-wire branch circuit?

  • Multi-wire branch circuits. A Multi-wire branch circuit takes advantage of this, by extending both ungrounded conductors and sharing a single grounded (neutral) conductor. So instead of having two circuits requiring four conductors, you can have two circuits with only three conductors.

  • What are the disadvantages of multi-wire branch circuits?

  • Each multiwire branch circuit shall be provided with a means that will simultaneously disconnect all ungrounded conductors at the point where the branch circuit originates. Multiwire branch circuits can be dangerous when not all the ungrounded circuit conductors are de-energized and equipment supplied from a multiwire circuit is being serviced.

  • What is the 2008 National Electrical Code for multiwire branch circuits?

  • The 2008 National Electrical Code, 210.4 (B) Multiwire Branch Circuits, now requires that effective 1 January 2008,information about conductors of multiwire branch circuits originating from the same panelboard or distribution equipment has been relocated to 210.4 (A).

  • What are the characteristics of a branch circuit?

  • A branch circuit that consists of two or more ungrounded conductors that have a voltage between them, and a grounded conductor that has equal voltage between it and each ungrounded conductor of the circuit and that is connected to the neutral or grounded conductor of the system
