Stan, I wasn't very clear, obviously. Sorry. I agree with your interpretation.
Here is my response to someone else who interpreted what I said the
same way as you did, with some additional clarifications, since
my first clarification was also less than clear! I was just addressing
the issues marked by the >>> in the original post.
>>>Again, yes, it's a good idea, but is it really "code"? (I don't have
>>>the NEC handy to determine if what his says is valid or correct.)
I think you are correct in your interpretation. I was just trying
to quote part of the NEC and show that 1) that paragraph does exist
and 2) that it addresses <250V rather than >250V.
Chad will have to argue the interpretation on his own, but it is clear
to me that it doesn't mean "falling" distance.
