Give facilities reliable auxiliary power on demand with the updated 2013 NFPA 110.
If disruption of the normal utility supply occurs, readiness of emergency power is a key consideration in safeguarding building occupants. Be prepared to meet critical and essential needs during power failures by designing, installing, testing, and maintaining systems according to the 2013 edition of NFPA 110: Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems.
This document contains performance requirements for power systems providing an alternate source of electrical power in the event that the primary power source fails. Power systems covered include power sources, transfer equipment, controls, supervisory equipment, and all related electrical and mechanical auxiliary and accessory equipment needed to supply electrical power to the load terminals of the transfer equipment.
Update your knowledge and work with the latest rules, including changes such as:
- Removal of the mandate for a 96-hour fuel supply for Level 1 systems in a seismic area. This change will drastically reduce the amount of stored fuel for many installations, allowing storage tanks to be significantly smaller.
- Added references to ASTM standards and additional Annex material addressing fuel quality and storage issues
Make sure EPSS are up-to-code and ready for use on demand. Order your copy of the 2013 NFPA 110. (Softbound, 39 pp., 2013)
