step by step through an industrial building, ELECTRICAL WIRING
INDUSTRIAL, 16th Edition, equips you with the basic knowledge and
skills you need to safely install wiring systems.
This text is written in easy-to-read language
and packed with vivid photographs and illustrations to help you
understand key concepts. It is also thoroughly updated to reflect
the 2017 National Electric Code, the standard for layout and
construction of electrical systems.
Plenty of example problems and detailed
solutions clearly illustrate how the concepts apply to real-world
situations. In addition, a set of building blueprints helps you see
how each chapter's concepts are applied in an actual industrial
For anyone learning industrial wiring, EWI is
an ideal on-the-job reference for apprentice and journeyman
electricians, and anyone working in the electrical field.
