A cut-out shall be provided for each branch circuit. All cut-outs shall be double-pole, mounted on incombustible bases, and with connections of such size and shape as to afford ample contact surface for both conductors and fuses.

No fuses shall be put in the cut outs except by special order, but a complete supply, consisting of not less than — sets for each cutout, shall be provided. These fuses shall be of the plug type or furnished with metal tips, and shall have their capacity plainly marked upon them.

For the number and capacity of switches see the attached schedule.
