When an electrical circuit carries more current than it was designed to handle, significant problems can occur. Sensitive equipment like electronics, lighting, or motors can be damaged or destroyed, and the extra current can generate heat in wires that are undersized for the load, possibly resulting in a fire. Fused disconnect switches or circuit breakers, are designed to open or disconnect the circuit when an overload or short-circuit occurs, limiting damage to connected equipment and preventing fires. In many cases, fused disconnect switches and circuit breakers can be used interchangeably, but in some applications, only one will be the best choice for the situation. Identify the neutral disconnect link.

In determining the classification of Interior Wall, Floor, and Ceiling Finishes, a test is considered to determine the Class rating of the finish. The test is the Flooring Radiant Panel Test (ASTM E 648). Model building codes and federal government agencies reference this test when they regulate floor covering flammability. Generally, there are two ratings:
Watts per square centimeter (W/cm2)
Class I 0.45 W/cm2 or greater
Class II 0.22 W/cm2 or greater
In the Flooring Radiant Panel Test, a Class I rating implies a more flame-resistant system than a Class II rating. In addition, the Flooring Radiant Panel Test is designed to measure corridor floor coverings. Because of their fire safety reputation, resilient floor coverings typically are not regulated in rooms. Sometimes resilient floor coverings are required to have a Class I rating in corridors of hospitals, nursing homes, day-care centers and other institutional-type occupancies. What is the Radiant Flux for the floor finishes in all floor finishes of the occupancies in the building?
