The State of Nebraska has adopted the 2008 National Electrical Code (NEC), with an effective date of July 12, 2010 with the following amendment:
430.102(b) Motor: A disconnecting means shall be provided for a motor in accordance with (B) (1) or (B) (2).
(1) Separate Motor Disconnect. A disconnecting means for the motor shall be located in sight from the motor location and the driven machinery location.
(2) Controller Disconnect. The controller disconnecting means required in accordance with 430.102(A) shall be permitted to serve as the disconnecting means for the motor if it is in sight from the motor location and the driven machinery location.
This adoption enhances electrical safety with the expansion of Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCI) 210.12(b) and the added child safety provision of Tamper Resistant Receptacles 406.11.
