When working with data center and commercial facility electrical systems, shocks of 100mA to more than 2,000mA are possible—definitely in the realm of serious harm to humans and property. Energized electrical equipment also presents the risk of arc flash caused by electrical faults that produce powerful explosions. When dealing with commercial and industrial electrical systems, such as uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) and their batteries, data center and facilities managers need to be aware of these risks, especially since some repair and maintenance procedures require working with a unit that is still energized. There are ways to minimize the risks to employees, equipment and the field technician performing the service. This paper answers some common questions about UPS maintenance, how to reduce the risks associated with servicing UPSs and batteries, and how to qualify a UPS service provider.

Code updates happen for one main reason: safety improvement. NEC (National Electrical Code) Article 408.3 helps take electrical safety for service entrance panels to a new level. The code, updated in 2017, includes provisions to provide shock protection via panelboard barriers. The barriers protect from energized conductors on the line terminals of the main overcurrent protection device (OCPD) in a panelboard. When the main circuit breaker in a panel is turned off, line side terminals and conductors remain energized from upstream via the utility or another panelboard. With these barriers in place and the main OCPD turned off, installers are better protected when pulling wires into the panelboard. Today, all panelboards are shipped with shock-protective barriers. However, barriers are new to installation procedures, so contractors may not recognize them and accidentally throw them out—easily and often.

Every three years, members of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) meet to review, modify and add new National Electrical Code (NEC), or NFPA 70, requirements to enhance electrical safety in the workplace and the home. This year’s code review is well underway: the second draft of NEC 2020 is complete and the annual NFPA Conference and Expo is scheduled for late June.

Every three years, members of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) meet to review, modify and add new National Electrical Code (NEC), or NFPA 70, requirements to enhance electrical safety in the workplace and the home. This year’s code review is well underway: the second draft of NEC 2020 is complete and the annual NFPA Conference and Expo is scheduled for late June. What follows is a preview of what are, in my opinion, the most significant code changes on track to pass. In this blog, I’ll explore the reasoning for each change and the future steps the NEC may take beyond 2020 regarding: Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection Service entrance equipment Reconditioned equipment Performance testing Load calculations Available fault current and temporary power This is a high-level overview. In the coming months, my Eaton colleagues and I will dig deeper into each topic as part of a continuing series on the 2020 code review cycle.

The production of counterfeit products is an increasing problem that affects the entire electrical industry. Counterfeit protective devices, like circuit breakers, including GFCI and AFCI for personal protection, pose one of the most significant risks to facility and employee safety. Because counterfeit products are more difficult to detect than ever, we as an industry must do more to guard against their risks and liabilities. By purchasing products from authorized resellers and using available tools to authenticate products, buyers can ensure a safer supply chain that mitigates the risk sub-standard and counterfeit electrical safety devices pose.

Working on energized equipment is one of the more dangerous scenarios technicians face in the field. As a result, there’s been a concerted industry effort to improve the understanding of electrical shock and arc flash hazards. I believe one of the most important standards in this safety push is the restructured language within the 2018 edition of the National Fire Protection Agency’s (NFPA’s) 70E “Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace.” In the past, the standard addressed electrical hazards and risks holistically when considering energized electrical work. But today’s latest guidelines now identify hazards and risks independently and include recommendations for a thorough risk analysis that considers the hazard, the planned work task and potential human error. Together, the changes result in a clearer understanding of energized work and help reduce electrical incidents.

Safety has always been Eaton’s highest priority and we work closely with the NEC (National Electric Code) to ensure new policies continue to protect our most valuable resources, people. Eaton, the NEC, NEMA, and other organizations have long maintained that molded case circuit breakers are not suitable for repair or refurbishment. While changes to the code for 2020 do not change that position, they do provide clarity on what it means to be refurbished and what is now required when a suitable product is refurbished, including clearly marking the item as refurbished and removing the original manufacturer’s listing mark. The new code distinguishes between general maintenance like replacing a breaker, and refurbishment, altering a piece of equipment to a once again operational state. Because a refurbished unit cannot be tested to the manufacturer’s test protocol, it cannot continue to carry the original listing mark. Read the article below and learn about "reconditioned", and what the NEC is doing to reinforce that UL489 molded case circuit breakers are not suitable for refurbishment or repair.
