Electrical Wiring Industrial

Book Preface

Electrical Wiring—Industrial is intended for use in industrial wiring courses at two-year community and technical colleges. The text walks the reader step by step through an industrial building, providing the basics on installing industrial wiring systems. An accompanying set of plans at the back of the book allows the student to proceed step by step through the wiring process by applying concepts learned in each chapter to an actual industrial building, in order to understand and meet requirements set forth by the National Electrical Code® (NEC®).


The fifteenth edition of Electrical Wiring—Industrial is based on the 2014 NEC. The NEC is used as the basic standard for the layout and construction of electrical systems. To gain the greatest benefit from this text, the learner must use the NEC on a continuing basis.

In addition to the accurate interpretation of the requirements of the NEC, the successful completion of any wiring installation requires the electrician to have a thorough understanding of basic electrical principles, a knowledge of the tools and materials used in installations, familiarity with commonly installed equipment and the specific wiring requirements of the equipment, the ability to interpret electrical construction drawings, and a constant awareness of safe wiring practices.

Electrical Wiring—Industrial builds upon the knowledge and experience gained from working with the other texts in the Delmar Cengage Learning electrical wiring series and related titles. The basic skills developed through previous applications are now directed to industrial installations. The industrial electrician is responsible for the installation of electrical service, power, lighting, and special systems in new construction; the changeover from old systems to new in established industrial buildings; the provision of additional electrical capacity to meet the growth requirements of an industrial building; and periodic maintenance and repair of the various systems and components in the building.
