The NEMA Surge Protective Devices Section has two ongoing research projects. The first is investigating surge susceptibility, where common electrical products are being tested to determine the effect of surges on functionality. The second attempts to determine the efficacy of commonly available Power Quality Monitors to mitigate surge events. Both projects will help consumers understand the need for surge protective devices to protect valuable electrical equipment.
The Cable Tray Section is continuing a marketing campaign to promote correct and safe installation. That group is also working with a Korean consortium to propagate NEMA cable tray requirements.
The Pin and Sleeve Plug and Receptacle Section has begun work on two application guides: Non Hazardous Industrial and Hazardous Locations.
Both the NEMA Ground Fault Personnel Protection and Wiring Device Sections met in conjunction with the NEMA Annual Meeting. For more information, contact Industry Director Daniel.Abbate@nema.org. ei
