The types of cables, allowed in cable tray, and the wiring methods permitted in cable trays can be found in NEC Section 392.10 (A). This Section also lists various corresponding NEC Articles which describe the conditions of use and installation requirements for a particular class or type of cable. Additional considerations such as fill capacity, allowable ampacity, cable splicing within trays, and securing and supporting cables are addressed in Article 392. Users should be familiar with all these Articles and check the manufacturer’s specifications, to verify selected cables meet all application requirements and NEC requirements.
