Simplify NFPA 70E Compliance

NFPA 70E Workplace Electrical Safety Standards apply to MCC’s and switchgear and also to plugs & receptacles used to connect welders, pumps, and other portable equipment. Because many of the plugs and receptacles currently in service have accessible live parts and can be hazardous if connected or disconnected under load, users must either update their equipment or follow cumbersome safety procedures in order to comply with NFPA 70E.
