In the '99 cycle, Article 695: Fire Pumps, a voltage drop requirement was added to 695.7. Luck would have it that I have a '96 and '02 Handbook but not '99. If anyone of you have a '99 Handbook, can you look that up to see if they commented on this and why? I presume to protect the conductors from flaming out in the event of a lock rotor state.
Speaking of Handbooks. I am very intersted in located older NEC Handbooks and code books. I am not sure when the NFPA started to publish the Handbooks, I prefer the ones published by them.
The NFPA/NEC Handbooks I am currently looking for are:
1978 and older
If I can not locate the Handbooks, I would probably settle for just the codebooks although I do have the 1990 and 1999.
If you have any you are willing to let go of, lets talk
