NFPA 70®: NEC® 2017 Edition App Description

Protect those around you and help build a safer world with the 2017 NFPA 70®: National Electrical Code! The NEC® is the benchmark for safe electrical design, installation, and inspection to protect people and property from electrical hazards. Revisions in the 2017 are easily identified – gray shading indicates technical changes, an “N” icon flags new Articles, text, tables and figures. Bullets show where paragraphs were deleted. The 2017 NEC includes the latest comprehensive regulations for wiring, overcurrent protection, grounding, and installation. Hundreds of updates and five all-new Articles pave the way to safer, more efficient electrical installations. Five first-time Articles include Energy Storage Systems (Article 706) and Direct Current Microgrids (Article 712). New detailed labeling for arc flash hazard warning on equipment protects workers. Revised provisions for AFCI and GFCI protection and other changes help improve electrical and fire safety.

App Reviews

  • Great app

    By hyggmhchtfkugutfkugutvkhfgjy
    Holds everything you need for Code checks
  • It works

    By Sparkie684
    Where else you going to get this info? Search works better than expected. Difficult to read tables on phone.
  • 2017 NEC

    Would be nice to be able to highlight articles!
  • It’s ok. Some problems.

    By Steve0ooO0
    Article 110 is missing all the ‘Part’ headers; i.e. “Part IV. Tunnel installations...” Instead, it skips to “110.X0 General” and you have to guess what it is referencing. Design bug: The header of the browser window covers the top of the index panel on the left. This blocks the first row or so of the index. Program Bug: If the index panel search button is used and results are found, clicking the result does nothing. There’s no iPad split screen support.
  • Great and convenient

    By DeadF00L
    The app is helpful, however as others have said adding a bookmark and highlight feature would make it surpass a physical book. Keep up the great worry thanks.
  • Spell check

    By Gr8gazu69111
    Like the app, only draw back is for those of us that can’t spell, the search function needs a spell check function or a auto correct, if that happens it would be a five star!
  • Could Be So Much Better

    By Wessmith123
    With just a little more effort this could be an absolutely awesome tool. 1) Add the ability to bookmark pages. 2) Add the ability to highlight key words and sentences.
  • Great App

    By Shoultzttttt
    Easy to use on the phone, lighter then the book and always available. I wish we could share the app with a mac book though, as an apprentice it would make doing homework and research that much easier!

    How do the justify not having these two critical components of the NEC?
  • Useful reference

    By Lub Dub
    Informative. Navigation within the App takes some effort at first. Not intuitive. Search feature if great. Well worth the cost
