The discussion surrounding AC vs. DC power is not a new one, but the rapid rise in new technology, lead primarily by renewable energy and electronics has brought a new focus to the discussion about AC vs. DC and how it will affect the electrical industry.

We need not return to the debate over power distribution between Thomas Edison and Nikolas Tesla. As we know AC won as the method for power distribution, but that didn’t mean DC went away, rather its use became limited to particular products that required conversion from AC to DC. In this conversion lies one of the greatest issues with AC/DC, namely the loss of power during the conversion process. Each time power is converted there is an average loss of 5% - 20%. And at times multiple conversions are needed before power reaches its end-use. At a time when energy waste is at the forefront of industry conversations power loss is a major issue and driver of potential further adoption of DC and LVDC power use.





Now in its 24th edition, the 2018 Canadian Electrical Code, Part I includes a number of significant updates and changes to better help electrical workers in the safe maintenance of electrical equipment and create safer electrical installations.

This edition features important revisions to many sections. For example, Section 26 now mandates the use of tamper-resistant receptacles in additional areas where children may be present. Section 62 now requires ground fault circuit interrupter protection for heating devices and controls in proximity to tubs, sinks, and shower stalls. Section 10 has been updated, reorganized, and significantly reduced in length.
