Nope--that's not legal in the U.S., nor is it safe.Originally posted by jkliegman@Nov 13 2005, 07:54 PM
i am working on an ac circuit in which a hand switch opens and closes the neutral line, while the hot line runs through the circuit unabated.
is this ok? or correct?
Thanks, I'm on it!Originally posted by richbrune@Nov 13 2005, 09:07 PM

You might check, however, that the line is actually a neutral--- in some rare cases where Rhomex type jacketed cable was used, you might find a white wire used as a switch leg. That would only be found in a residence, though, and the installing electrician is supposed to mark the ends of the white wire with tape to signify when it is NOT a neutral. Better fix that one.
