Electrical Grounding and Bonding  (ISBN-10: 1435498321 | ISBN-13: 9781435498327)

ELECTRICAL GROUNDING AND BONDING 3E, written in accordance with the 2011 National Electrical Code®, provides your students with a comprehensive introduction to the essential elements of electrical grounding and bonding. It examines the critical concepts of calculating conductor sizes, reading and interpreting NEC® tables, the use of grounded conductor connections in DC and AC systems, as well as various installations and sizing. It also includes electrical design and installation that ensures compliance with an emphasis on "Going Green", and expanded coverage of revised Article 250 grounding and bonding requirements. The material is student-friendly with straightforward, easy-to-understand explanations of key concepts that foster understanding. Updated full-color and dynamic illustrations augment this book to further support this thorough student- and professional-level approach to electrical grounding and bonding.

Illustrated Guide to the NEC  (ISBN-10: 1435498135 | ISBN-13: 9781435498136)

ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO THE NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE® 5E provides your students with a unique approach to learning the Code using highly-detailed, technically-accurate illustrations and visuals to break down and simplify the expanding volume and complexity of the 2011 National Electrical Code®. By translating the sometimes vague, complicated wording of the Code into straightforward illustrations and clear explanations, this book provides a resource that will facilitate your students' comprehension and application of Code requirements whether they are beginning or master electricians. Material is organized logically, covering fundamental provisions first, then grouping code requirements by the type of occupancy, beginning with one-family dwellings and progressing on to multi-family housing, commercial locations, and special occupancies. This organization also reflects how information is needed when working in the electrical industry, better preparing your students for the real world. The fifth edition of ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO THE NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE® discusses new Code changes and shows some of these Code changes through new illustrations, while incorporating other Code changes into existing illustrations. Its comprehensive coverage, innovative learning approach, and industry-based organization make this an indispensable supplement to the NEC® whether your students need information on a specific area or need to learn the complete Code.
