Cooper Bussmann, St. Louis, recently announced it will offer new free educational and training presentations for electrical inspectors, contractors, engineers, electricians, trainers, and other interested parties.

Available at, the first two presentations cover new 2002 NEC requirements for Secs. 110.16 and 240.85. The new Sec. 110.16 is intended to reduce the occurrence of serious injury or death due to arcing faults involving people who work on electrical equipment. This regulation includes switchboards, panelboards, industrial control panels, and motor control centers in other than dwelling units, which are likely to require examination, adjustment, servicing, or maintenance while energized. Sec. 240.85 has two new additions relating to overcurrent device applications. These changes relate to slash voltage ratings and single-pole interrupting capabilities.

You can view narrated presentations 24 hours a day as well as download non-narrated text or PowerPoint versions. Cooper Bussmann plans to add more presentations to the site in the future, so stay tuned.
