Free Webinar: How to Navigate NFPA 79 and NEC Code Requirements for Surge Protection
Learn About NFPA 79
The 2018 Edition of NFPA 79 (Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery) specifies the use of surge protective devices (SPDs) in machines with safety circuits. This specification has been in effect since November 30, 2017, for areas of the North American market that have adopted NEC 2017. This standard applies for all industrial machines being placed on the market. SPDs ensure a voltage limitation appropriate for the insulation coordination. This prevents the safety equipment from being disabled by surge voltages.
