ARTICLE 210. BRANCH CIRCUITS
ARTICLE 210. BRANCH CIRCUITS210.1. Scope. Article 210 covers all branch circuits other than those "specific-purpose branch circuits" such as those that supply only motor loads, which are covered in Art. 430. This section makes clear that the article covers branch circuits supplying lighting and/or appliance loads as well as branch circuits supplying any combination of those loads plus motor loads or motor-operated appliances, unless the branch circuit is one identified in Table 210.2, "Specific-Purpose Branch Circuits." Where motors or motor-operated appliances are connected to branch circuits supplying lighting and/or appliance loads, the rules of both Arts. 210 and 430 apply. Article 430 alone applies to branch circuits that supply only motor loads.
