Foreword to National Electrical Safety Code
This publication consists of the elements of the National Electrical Safety Code® (NESC®) at the moment in impact. The fonner apply of designating elements by editions has not been sensible for a while. Within the 1977 Edition, Elements 1 and 4 had been sixth Editions; Half 2 was a seventh Edition.

The final full version of the Code (the fifth Edition, NBS Handbook H30) was issued in 1948, though separate parts had been obtainable at numerous instances beginning in 1938.
Half 2-Definitions, and the Grounding Guidelines, sixth Edition, had been issued as NBS Handbook H81, ANSI C2.2-1960, in November 1961, however work on different elements was not actively in course of once more till 1970.
In 1970 the C2 Committee determined to delete the Guidelines for the Set up and Upkeep of Electrical Utilization Tools (Half 3 of the fifth Edition), now largely lined by the National Electrical Code (ANSIINFPA 70), and the Guidelines for Radio Installations (Half 5 of the fifth Edition) from future editions.
The Dialogue of the NESC, issued as NBS Handbook H4 (1928 Edition) for the 4th Edition of the NESC, and as NBS Handbook H39 for Half 2 of the Grounding Guidelines of the fifth Edition, was not printed for the sixth Edition.
The 1981 Edition included main adjustments in Elements 1,2, and 3, minor adjustments in Half 4, and the incorporation of the principles frequent to all elements into Part 1.
The 1984 Edition was revised to replace all references and to listing these references in a brand new Part 3. Rounded metric values, for info solely, had been added.
Gender-related terminology was deleted. Sections I-Introduction, 2-Definitions, 3-References, and 9- Grounding Strategies, had been made relevant to every of the Elements 1, 2, 3, and 4.
The 1987 Edition was revised extensively. Definitions had been modified or added. Necessities affecting grounding strategies, electrical provide stations, overhead line clearances and loading, underground strains, and work guidelines had been revised.
The 1990 Edition included a number of main adjustments. Common guidelines had been revised.
A big change to the tactic for specifying overhead line clearances was made and the rationale added as Appendix A. Necessities for clearances of overhead strains from grain bins and an alternate methodology for figuring out the energy necessities for wooden buildings had been added.
Guidelines protecting grounding strategies, electrical provide stations, underground strains, and work guidelines had been modified.
Within the 1993 Edition, adjustments had been made within the guidelines relevant to emergency and non permanent installations. In Part 9 and Elements 1, 2, and 3, guidelines had been prolonged or clarified to incorporate HVDC techniques.
The necessities for random separation of direct-buried provide and communication techniques had been modified for consistency and readability, as was the rule in Half 4 on tagging electrical provide circuits.
For 1997, a number of adjustments had been made that affected all or a number of elements of the Code.
Essentially the most important of those, which is said in Part 1, is to point out numerical values within the metric (SI) system first, with the customary inch-foot-pound values (inside parentheses) following.

The wording of guidelines affecting Ampacity and Power Underground Installations, Separation of Grounding Conductors, and Communication Equipment was modified for readability. In Part 9 and Elements I and 2, guidelines had been prolonged or clarified to incorporate HVDC Techniques.
In Half I-Electrical Provide Stations, necessities for a security clearance zone for fences relative to uncovered dwell elements had been added.
Typically, necessities copied from the National Electrical Code®, NFP A 70 had been changed by direct references to the relevant guidelines of the NEC doc. A requirement for brief circuit safety of energy transformers was added.
In Half 2-0verhead Strains, adjustments had been made to the clearance guidelines relevant to emergency and non permanent installations to permit for the right selection of strategies for assuring security.
Footnotes to a number of tables relating to the necessities relevant to ungrounded guys and ungrounded parts of span guys had been added, as had been clearance necessities for unguarded inflexible dwell elements over or close to swimming swimming pools.
Clearance necessities between completely different services situated on the identical construction had been modified. Power necessities contained in Sections 24, 25, and 26 had been revised utterly.
In Half 3-Underground Strains, the necessities for random separation of direct-buried provide and communication cables had been modified with respect to sequential marking of the identification image with different information on the cable.
A requirement for a steady metallic defend for some communication cables was added. In Half 4-Work Guidelines, a requirement that warning indicators and tags adjust to the provisions of relevant ANSI requirements, and in depth necessities for fall safety had been added.
The rule on tagging electrical provide circuits was revised to make clear its utility to Supervisory Management and Knowledge Acquisition (SCADA) Techniques.
