NFPA 79 2015 ELECTRICAL STANDARD FOR INDUSTRIAL MACHINERY

Sponsored by Lapp Group

​NFPA 79 is the U.S. Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery and is referenced by the National Electrical Code under Article 670. NFPA 79 encompasses all of the machines’ electrical and electronic elements operating at 600V or less. With the new NFPA 79 2015 edition, the primary focus is mainly one of overall safety and promoting further harmonization with its European counterpart Standard IEC 60204-1. These new changes were driven primarily by the machine manufacturers’ global necessity to ensure that their products were safety-compliant at both the domestic and international levels.
