Re: Smaller size wire on 20A circuit for dedicated purpose?
said by alkizmo:Citing this section of the Code is completely wrong. It is specifically for flexible cords and fixture wires, something completely different than what the OP is trying to deal with.
Until the pros come here...
From the NEC rule 240.5(B)(2) : 20A circuits can supply: 18AWG, up to 50 ft of run length; 16AWG, up to 100 ft; 14AWG and larger for any length.
This is not a quote of the actual rule, but it came from a very reliable website
