The NEC handbook, 2020 Edition, helps get you up to speed with the latest in electrical safety and compliance.

Based on the 2020 NEC, the new NEC handbook reflects industry trends and code changes addressing electrical technologies that are transforming the field. You get detailed explanations on how to implement requirements along with the reasoning behind major changes that could affect your designs and installations.

The NEC handbook provides a narrative interpretation featuring expert commentary and informative exhibits that help you increase code comprehension and explain NEC requirements to clients and others who might not have professional electrical training.

Only the 2020 edition of the NEC handbook has:
  • The complete 2020 NEC text for instant and easy reference
  • Integrated commentary positioned in-line with NEC text
  • A new Summary of Technical Changes table that shows you where and why code changes occurred
  • A cross-reference feature to help you quickly find related information in other articles
  • 800 full-color photos, tables, and illustrations such as schematics, floor plans, and cross-sectional graphics
  • Ten Informative Annexes, including Informative Annex C, Conduit and Tubing Fill Tables, and Informative Annex D, Examples
The NEC handbook is designed explicitly for electrical professionals. The complete NFPA 70, NEC, index is also included for easy reference to the code information you require. The handbook's commentary text is colored blue to differentiate it from the code text.
