Linemanís and Cablemanís Handbook, 12E

Thomas Shoemaker 
James Mack

The Only Comprehensive Guide to Distribution and Transmission Line Technology

Completely revised to reflect the 2012 National Electrical Safety Code (NESC), The Lineman's and Cableman's Handbook, 12th Edition, provides in-depth information on overhead and underground distribution and transmission lines. The latest OSHA, ANSI, and ASTM standards are emphasized throughout.

This authoritative resource presents basic principles, equipment, standards, and safety regulations, allowing electrical workers to avoid costly errors, diagnose and repair power failures, and ensure optimum safety. A wealth of illustrations and photographs make it easy to understand the material, and self-test questions and exercises help reinforce key concepts.

First published in 1928, The Lineman's and Cableman's Handbook has shown generations of line and cable workers how to construct, operate, and maintain electrical transmission and distribution lines, both overhead and underground.


Get Quick Access to Every Distribution and Transmission Topic:

Filled with over 1500 illustrations, this classic presents unsurpassed coverage of electrical systems, substations, circuits, structures, and construction specifications.

The Eleventh Edition features:

All the guidance needed to maintain systems at peak capacity, avoid costly errors, diagnose and repair power failures, and ensure safety
Contents updated to reflect OSHA, NESC, ANSI, and ASTM

This new material: the latest techniques for emergency system restoration, aerial cable construction, padmount capacitors, padmount dead-front switchgear, and composite core conductors
