IEEE VTS Philadelphia Chapter Meeting

The IEEE Vehicular Technology Society (VTS) Philadelphia Chapter is holding a technical meeting.  The topic is NFPA 130 Wire and Cable Requirements.  Our speaker is Alex Marciano, Application Engineer, Marmon Industrial Energy & Infrastructure Group.

This presentation discusses the requirements given by NFPA 130 for wire and cable.  The lecture will discuss non-emergency and emergency circuit requirements.  Mr. Marciano will explain how cables are protected by following materials, installation, and testing requirements given by NFPA 130, NFPA 70, IEEE 1202, and UL 2196.  A slide show summarizes the codes and standards, as well as showing photographs of cable testing and installation methods to meet requirements.

Attendees may apply for 1.0 PDH provided through the IEEE Certificates Program, accepted in all states.
