Imagine having purchased and installed a brand new machine that is desperately needed to help meet production demands, but it can’t be used because there is a serious problem: it’s not compliant with code. The 2017 edition of the NEC® has new short-circuit current rating (SCCR) requirements that will impact how machines are purchased and installed, but will also enhance the safety for machine operators and minimize risk of fire. Being unprepared can result in commissioning delays, costly changes, or even injury. However, taking some basic actions before machines are purchased and installed can significantly simplify compliance and avoid these risks. 

In this webcast, we will discuss new SCCR Code requirements, how they impact personnel safety and machinery installations, and some practical approaches to help achieve compliance. Eaton recommends referencing the 2017 NEC for the complete requirements of each Code section.
