Re: Wiring receptacle

Yes UF is rated for underground but can be used as NM. You can buy UV resistant UF cable. UF cable is rated at 90 degrees when used as NM cable (60 degrees if used underground) it is also rated for wet locations. UV comes from sunlight and also as a by product of welding. UF also seems to hold up better than NM when it is hit, which often happens in a workshop.

Conduit would be the best choice for a workshop but I just don't like working with it.
