600 Volts to 1,000 Volts

Does the change from 600 volts to 1,000 volts in the 2014 National Electrical Code® (NEC) create confusion? After speaking at several seminars and writing presentations concerning the 2014 NEC changes, it has become very apparent that the change of the voltage threshold from 600 volts to 1,000 volts has many in the industry wondering how or if this affects their industry or market. The answer could be yes or no. This sounds just as confusing as the change in the NEC itself.
