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.

NFPA 70®: NEC® 2017 Edition App Reviews

  • Great App

    By Think App has issues
    I love it. I am an apprenticeship instructor online and this is perfect for looking up keywords etc. Don’t know what I would do without it.
  • Better and Faster Than The Book

    By Inspector-Gadget
    For a chief electrical inspector, plans examiner, inspector, or an electrical contractor, this is much faster than having the actual code book. The search engine is awesome, for example; if you type in “GFCI” then every place in the code book that mentions GFCI will come up in a list. Just tap or go back until you find what you are looking for. You forgot which article is for Fire Pumps? Just type “fire pump” in the search field and there you have it! It’s that simple. I have been using the iPhone NEC for years now, even for plan review in the office. It is absolutely the best code book in the field too. On my iPhone right now is the 2011, 2014, 2017, and I will absolutely buy the 2020 as soon as it comes out in the App Store.
  • Needs 12.9 iPad update

    By JTUberGeek
    Just purchased this on my iPad Pro 12.9 and the bar at the top covers the top three menus options so you can’t click on them, fix that and I will change my rating.

    No table of contents and no index. Get rid of advertising as well.
  • Electricians Must Have

    By Bbooden
    Having my prints already on an iPad makes having the NEC App very convenient. Search engine makes looking for articles a quick and relative easy process. I’d make it 5 stars if hardbook issue was made
  • Almost as good as a code book

    By Journey 2 Master
    Let me start out by stating I use this everyday. I use it more than the printed code book. I wish there was an option to highlight portions of code for future use, or save/earmark snippets of code that you frequently use. Even just having a search history or a populated list of frequently searched community key terms for easier indexing. Also a way to add notes would be great. Keep up the great work!

  • 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.
