The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved the InterNational Electrical Testing Association’s (NETA’s) Standard for Acceptance Testing Specifications for Electrical Power Equipment and Systems, 2009 edition (ANSI/NETA ATS-2009).

Available
for purchase as a bound manual, CD-ROM or electronic download, the
ANSI/NETA ATS-2009 is used when specifying and performing necessary
tests to ensure that electrical systems and apparatus, not only meet
project specifications, but that the manufacturer of the equipment
supplied a product that will perform safely and reliably for many years
to come.




“Anyone
involved in the energization of electrical equipment should consider
this document a must-have,” said Al Peterson, president of Utility
Service Corp.




NETA is
an accredited standards developer for ANSI, and defines the standards
by which electrical equipment is deemed safe and reliable.
NETA-certified technicians conduct the tests that ensure this equipment
meets the association’s stringent specifications. NETA is also a
sponsor of the IEEE/NFPA Arc Flash Research Project.
