The first edition of this title proved the most successful of the Portable Handbook series launched in 1999. Aimed at electrical engineers and technicians working in building power systems, the relentlessly practical Handbook succeeded as an in the field working tool. This new edition is necessitated by the new 2002 version of the National Electrical Code (NEC). This code changes render much of the existing material obsolete, so over half the chapters require heavy rewrites to stay current.


This quick-look-up working tool, packed with tables, charts, and checklists, takes the guesswork out of almost any electrical design task or calculation. Indispensable for electrical engineers, designers, and technicians, the Handbook provides immediate fingertip access to the fundamental information busy professionals need for everyday use in the field.

This new Second Edition has been totally revised to reflect the 2002 National Electrical Code(R) and also includes new sections on telecommunications-structured cabling systems, dissipation array system technology for lightning protection, and blown optical fiber technology. With its well-illustrated, systematic framework and ready-to-use tools, no other reference delivers this much time-saving data in such a convenient, highly usable format.

COMPACT, COMPLETE, AND FULLY UPDATED TO REFLECT THE 2002 NEC, the Handbook contains information on :

* NEC Articles, Tables, and Data
* Service and Distribution
* Grounding and Ground Fault Protection
* Emergency and Standby Power Systems
* Lighting
* Special Systems
* Miscellaneous Special Applications
