Book Description: The #1 electrical reference, the 2002 National Electrical Code, is now available through today's #1 electrical publisher, Delmar Publishers! The single most important reference in the electrical industry, the National Electrical Code (NEC), is updated every three years and outlines minimum standards for all types of electrical installations. Adopted as law by states, cities, and municipalities, the 2002 edition of the NEC features newly adopted articles on transient voltage surge suppressors (Article 285), sensitive electronic equipment (Article 647), fuel cells (Article 692), and more! The latest administrative rules (e.g., Article 80) and safety rules (e.g., Article 100 on flash protection and Article 430 on motor disconnect locations) are also included. An excellent resource for anyone involved in electrical design, installation, and inspection, NEC 2002 provides 100% of the information needed to meet Code and avoid costly errors in electrical installations of all types. Delmar is pleased to make this authoritative reference by the NFPA - containing the most widely accepted and most frequently used criteria for electrical installations in the U.S. - available directly from us for the convenience of our customers who work in and around the electrical trades. It may be used independently or as a companion to any electrical book, including Delmar's best-selling wiring series as well as our guides to understanding and using the NEC.
