Cooper Bussmann now offers free educational and training presentations for electricians, inspectors, contractors, engineers, trainers and other electrical professionals.
Narrated presentations can be viewed online 24 hours a day, seven days a week on the Training and Education page of bussmann.com.
Non-narrated, downloadable versions in PowerPoint are also available and can be used as a self-tutorial or for group presentations. Industry trainers are encouraged to use these materials.
The first two presentations cover new 2002 National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements. NEC Section 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.
NEC Section 240.85 has two new additions relating to overcurrent device applications. These changes relate to slash voltage ratings and single pole interrupting capabilities.
To access the presentation, go to the Training and Education page of bussmann.com or call (636) 527-1270 for more information.
