Pre-order your 2012 Edition of the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC)
IEEE announced yesterday that pre-orders for the 2012 edition NESC will be available through IEEE (the exclusive publisher) before August, 2011. The NESC continues to serve as the authority on safety requirements for telecommunications, power, and cable TV systems. The code book covers practical safeguarding of employees and the public during the installation, operation and/or maintenance of electric supply and communication lines and associated equipment. Looking for some insight into “what’s behind the code?” IEEE is also offering pre-orders of the 7th Edition of their companion piece, The 2012 NESC Handbook.
On a side note: Did you know that IEEE has a site where you can download 802 standards for six months after they have been published in PDF?
