Wiring and the NEC

Building electrical systems are designed to safely distribute electricity to various locations in a building in order to power electrical loads.  The proper design and installation of such systems is critical to ensuring the safety and reliability of electricity supply.  This is especially true in medical facilities, where safety and reliability are of exceptional importance.

Standards and Technical Specifications

Properly drafted specifications and the use of international standards can allow each energy system to be tailored to meet the needs of the facility while still ensuring best practice design and installation protocols are followed.

Technical Drawings

The schematics provide technical installation drawings for inverter/battery power backup systems at health clinics in Haiti.
