I am purchasing an item that requires a 20 amp "dedicated circuit." Can someone please tell me what a "dedicated circuit" is? Does that mean only one item can be used on that circuit or does it mean something else? Thanks

Yes, that's exactly what it means -- this item needs to be on it's own circuit, with nothing else on the circuit. <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by bg96jb99:

90% of the time it means only one appliance per circuit. I did a commercial wiring job last summer and we had four computers or two printers per dedicated circuit.

Usually dedicated circuits are to electronics or maybe to a heater.

Insatlled a ceiling heater/exhaust fan combo and ran a dedicated to the heater.
