    Rationale

    For the cable length in Section 12.3.1, Section 25.2.1, and Section 37.2.3 removed the sentence with the word minimum and replace with baseline length of 10 feet +/-4 inches (3 meters). Add a sentence to allow for other lengths and configurations as agreed upon between seller and user. This revision will set a baseline (10 feet) length to qualify testing of components and assembly methods. This section will also define a test method for other cable lengths and protective ground set configurations.
