This workshop combines our most popular programs – Ground & Bonding, NFPA 79 and UL 508A - to give you a comprehensive understanding of industrial machinery electrical safety requirements in a bundled solution.
Day 1 focuses on article 250 – Grounding & Bonding of the National Electrical Code®. The class provides attendees with personal instruction into the requirements surrounding the grounding and bonding of electrical systems and how it is addressed in the NEC®. This course provides excellent detail in the most relevant and frequently used applications covering grounding and bonding requirements. Workshop materials ensure the student has the necessary material for notes and information that he or she can take with them for future reference.
Days 2 and 3 of this technical workshop will cover the origin, organization, intent, and purpose of NFPA 79 Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery 2018 Edition. From single-motor drill presses to complex automated systems, industrial machines present unique fire and shock hazards that must be properly addressed to safeguard workers, equipment and work in progress. Learn to implement provisions in this 2-day workshop on the 2018 NFPA 79 with confidence to provide adequate levels of protection. Industry experts will guide you through the Standard and provide the practical knowledge and understanding you need to make informed safety decisions using NFPA 79 in conjunction with the National Electrical Code and other related documents.
Days 4 and 5 of the workshop focus on how to construct general use industrial control panels in accordance with the Standard for Industrial Control Panels, UL 508A, 3rd Edition. It covers UL 508A, general use ICP construction, power circuit, control circuit, rating and marking requirements, sections 1-61; enclosure construction requirements, sections 62-64; standards for components, Appendix A; use of non-UL components, Appendix B; and component usage, Appendix C. The final day instructs industrial control panel customers on how to establish short-circuit ratings for individual industrial control panels in accordance with the requirements outlined in the new Standard for Industrial Control Panels, UL 508A, 3rd Edition, Supplement SB. This supplement is the only method specifically noted as being recognized by the NEC. The workshop wraps up at noon on Friday.
Each participant will receive a participant workbook, a copy of the National Electrical Code: 2017 ed, a copy of NFPA 79: Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery, 2018 Ed, and a copy of the UL 508A Industrial Control Panels Standard, 3rd Edition ($1068 USD value).
