Need some help here.

I have been told that the use of power strips for a new installation is a violation of the National Electric Code (NEC). According to my source, NEC requires that sufficient duplex receptacles be installed to accomodate all planned equipment, i.e., a room full of computers. Extension cords and power strips must be an afterthought.

Seems to me I've seen many offices where power strips are installed as a matter of course from day one.

Thanks guys.

Earl

I believe you are correct.

I was once testing a prototype, with long wire leads coming out of the board. One of the leads sprung back and went right into the hot side of a power strip that was mounted on the edge of the bench riser. Forth of July in the middle of winter!
