Pop-up counter receptacle wiring

paredownMarch 12, 2010

I updated a previous post with a link regarding a pop-up counter outlet that does meet NEMA guidelines for the 4' requirement.


Box is made by LEW:


I will be tapping into a GFI wall outlet at a wall (end of the counter), running my wiring behind the first cabinet and then physically attached on the underside of a section of open counter (breakfast bar) to reach the pop-up fixture

This site that offers the pop-up box online has instructions posted with the box--instructions mention conduit for install.

My question is, would armored cable attached on the underside of the counter meet code, or?


Here is a link that might be useful: PUFP-CT Pop-Up box

I assume you mean NEC not NEMA.

Unless your local jurisdiction has additional requirements, armored cable is not required unless there is some possibility of physical damage.
