Hermosa Beach, CA (PRUnderground) April 4th, 2014
E&S Grounding Solutions is pleased to announce the release of their new electrical grounding book by lead author and Manager of Engineering David Stockin. “McGraw-Hill’s National Electrical Code 2014 Grounding and Earthing Handbook” is now available at major retailers and has already received rave reviews from industry experts and critics alike. The book is a comprehensive guide to electrical grounding and specifically Article 250 of the 2014 National Electrical Code (NEC). The book has extensive illustrations with step by step explanations of each and every article of the Code. Additional electrical grounding chapters covered in the book include the features and benefits of different types of grounding electrodes, measuring ground potential rise and the importance of soil resistivity testing as well as information on different types of lightning protection systems. The chapters are designed to give readers and those who work in the electrical industry a solid knowledge of National Electrical Code (NEC) issues and the proper methods for grounding and earthing to ensure the safety of humans and property.
“McGraw-Hill’s National Electrical Code 2014 Grounding and Earthing Handbook” fully addresses above-grade grounding of electrical systems, as well as below-grade “earthing” grounding requirements and gives readers comprehensive information regarding Article 250 of the 2014 National Electrical Code. While other technical books are often boring and full of technical jargon, Mr. Stockin has incorporated extensive easy-to-understand illustrations with descriptions to give readers a clear understanding of Code requirements and just what it takes to meet these requirements. “David Stockin’s book develops a clear understanding of Code requirements through extensive use of illustrations and clear text” says David Brender, P.E. and principal member of Panel 5 of the National Electrical Code.
Included in the book are many real-world practical examples that provide a better understanding of grounding requirements, the different types of grounding methods available, grounding system design, the importance of soil resistivity testing and much more. Mr. Stockin has also included an entire chapter for the most commonly asked electrical grounding questions and answers which provide readers with practical knowledge they can apply to their own electrical grounding projects. “If you are responsible for delivering power, or if you just want to know what’s going on beneath your feet, read these pages; ground your circuit as Mr. Stockin suggests, and you can close the master switch with confidence” says Bill Nye “The Science Guy”, America’s popular TV science educator.
