2017 NEC First Draft published 7/7/15
Curious about what changes are being proposed for the next edition of the NEC?

You must have a (free) account with NFPA to access the interactive document. If you don’t wish to use TerraView or sign up for an account, the results of the panel decisions are available in separate documents under the heading “First Draft Ballot.” Public comments are due electronically on September 25, 2015 and paper submissions are due August 21, 2015. Don’t forget to submit your comment!
Motors and Conductors 6/3/15
Join us for our seminar this Saturday, June 6, at the Desert Pines Golf course. The seminar will consist of half a day of instruction on motors and half a day of instruction on conductors. Since the Las Vegas Valley area is currently operating under the 2011 NEC, the classes will be based on this version.
Greetings! Don’t forget that Educode is taking place this week March 9-13 at The Orleans. If you need CEUs, it is not too late! Find details at educode.us

Equipment Temperature Ratings 7/21/14
Although much of the available wire and cable is rated 90C, and many connectors are rated at 90C, equipment such as panelboards, switchboards and similar equipment is typically limited to 75C. For example, UL 67 has provisions for testing with 60C and 75C wire, but not 90C wire. Allowable conductor ampacity should be based on the "weakest link" temperature - which is often that of the equipment where it terminates. If you are using wire or cable with a 90C temperature rating, the corresponding ampacity may be used for temperature correction or adjustment, but the final ampacity must not exceed that found in the temperature column corresponding to the marking on the equipment.
