Free reference guide analyzes 2014 NEC changes

Thomas & Betts (T&B) has published its Analysis of NEC Code Changes 2014.

Thomas & Betts (NYSE: TNB) has published its Analysis of NEC Code Changes 2014, a free reference guide to changes in the 2014 National Electrical Code (NEC) that pertain to T&B’s products. This latest edition of the guide also covers code changes affecting ABB Low-Voltage Products (LP) and ABB Power Products; its scope has been significantly expanded as the result of ABB's acquisition of T&B in 2012.

T&B contends that the guide is one of the most extensive code change books available from an electrical products manufacturer. The analysis guides readers in selecting the appropriate T&B products to comply with 2014 changes to the NEC. The book is organized by NEC article numbers with a table of contents, and includes illustrations of products and applications that pertain to code changes.

“This is the sixth edition of the T&B Code Changes book and includes, for the first time, changes affecting products offered by ABB Low Voltage and ABB Power Products,” comments David Kendall, director, industry affairs, for Thomas & Betts. “Among these products are Baldor motors; low-, medium- and high-voltage switchgear; transformers; controls; smart meters; circuit breakers: electrical vehicle charging stations; and energy monitoring systems used in building automation.”

Among the more significant changes covered in Analysis of NEC Code Changes 2014 are a change from 600- to 1,000-volt thresholds throughout the book, and the addition of direct current (DC) to the code. The 152-page guide is available as a print publication or it may be downloaded as an electronic PDF file. The guide will also be available as a mobile device application.
