Safety products: The National Electrical Manufacturers Association published the 2017 edition of its Electrical Standards & Products Guide (ESPG), a comprehensive listing of NEMA electrical standards as well as an extensive directory of manufacturers and their products.
According to Jim Wright, chairman of the NEMA Codes & Standards Committee, standards play a vital part in the design, production, and distribution of products destined for national and international commerce.
“Technical standards benefit users and manufacturers by improving safety, eliminating misunderstandings between manufacturer and purchaser, and assisting the purchaser in selecting and obtaining the proper product for his particular need,” Wright said.
NEMA members are eligible for a 20 percent discount on standards. Other benefits of choosing a NEMA standard include:
• Customizable formats and packages
• Use of the free NEMA Standards Tracker
• Access to usage reports
• Document previews
• Historical and redline documents included at no additional cost
ESPG is used by buyers who work in transmission and distribution, architecture, construction, lighting, medical imaging, motors and industrial controls, transportation, and other industries that specify and use electrical equipment.
NEMA publishes more than 700 electrical standards and technical papers governing millions of unique member products across 52 market segments.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) represents nearly 350 electrical, medical imaging, and radiation therapy manufacturers at the forefront of electrical safety, reliability, resilience, efficiency, and energy security. Our combined industries account for more than 400,000 American jobs and more than 7,000 facilities across the United States. Domestic production exceeds $117 billion per year.
