Location I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada so the Ontario building code applies.
First off I will be taking out a permit with the ESA prior to doing this work. I am looking at planning it all out in advance and to ensure that what I am proposing is actually legal and if not, then what is a viable alternative. If clarification is required, then please let me know. Fair warning, I am posting this identical question in 2 forums for now and ONLY 2 forums. The forums are: selfhelpforums and diychatroom.
I am in the planning stage of mapping out my electrical wiring update for my car hoist. I would like to run wiring from the panel (double pole breaker) to a junction box in the garage attic (I have existing 8/3 and 10/3 wire that I want to use; however, I will need more). From the junction box, I plan on running the wire to the location above the hoist and passing the wiring through the ceiling, into some conduit, and then down to a kill switch. From the kill switch, I would like to go to a 110v Outlet, then a 220v Outlet, and finally hookup directly to the Hydraulic Motor. Please see first 2 images.
Purpose of 110v and 220v outlets? Well, first off, the 110v outlet would be for using random power tools or lights when working on a vehicle. The 220v outlets purpose would be for a MIG welder.
1) Is this even allowed by code? To have a 110v and 220v outlet on the same wiring and then terminating with direct wiring to the hydraulic pump?
2) Kill switch
a. I was planning on using a 20A light switch as a kill switch; however, if I use a 30A or 40A breaker is that allowed? Or would I require something else? I plan on turning the circuit OFF unless I am using it.
b. I am assuming that breaking the black connection that the 110v and 220v lines would both be severed?
3) What wiring size is required for this setup? I have a run of 8/3 and 10/3 wiring. The 8/3 feeds into a 40 AMP double pole breaker while the 10/3 feeds into a 30 AMP double pole breaker. These were initially installed when the house was built for basement laundry / stove from what I can tell but never connected at the panel. I dont mind purchasing a new breaker if needed. That is just what is existing and available.
8/3 is stamped: 2003 NEXANS CSA LL23462 F NM090 XLPE 8/3 CANADEX 300V FT1
10/3 is stamped: MAY/2003 NEXANS CSA LL23462 F NM090 XLPE 10/3 CANADEX 300V FT1
I plan on routing the wire from the panel, through the unfinished part of the basement, up along a 2x4 and into the attic above the garage. From there, I want to run the wire to the location above where I wish to drop it and then continue with conduit from the ceiling down. (Adding a junction box where necessary). How often do I need to secure the run?
a. What type of conduit would I need / what size for the size of wire above?
6) Another question, separate from the above questions, if I wish to wire up another, separate 220v outlet for a compressor and the MIG welder at the same time in a different location in the garage. What would be the minimum wire size for them if they were on the same circuit at the same time (ON at the same time), or separate (only 1 ever plugged in at one time).
Same MIG as listed above
If you can answer any of my questions it would be appreciated!
